Normal Fauna is the vehicle for the songs and songwriting of Andee Joyce, an autistic woman based in the Portland area, who after the age of 50 suddenly crossed the line from “terminal loser” to “eccentric old bat.” She much prefers this side of the line. Andee started writing songs again in 2014 after a layoff of almost 20 years, and also took voice lessons to recover not only the three octaves she had in high school, but tacked on an extra one for good measure. This site is about Andee’s process of writing, singing, and recording these songs, and posting works in progress.
Normal Fauna as a performing unit will happen someday, and will include Andee plus anyone else she can rope into the proceedings at the moment. Which might wind up being you. You never know. Andee herself loves playing all kinds of percussion and drums, and does her recordings using Acoustica Mixcraft software.
