Joel C. Peskin aka iReedMan, started playing the clarinet at the age of nine in Brooklyn. After graduating from the High School Of Performing Arts, which was made famous in the movie and television series, “Fame”, Joel studied saxophone with legendary woodwind teacher, Joseph Allard, from the Juilliard School of Music. Joel also studied with saxophonist Frank Strozier and was a protégé and close friend of jazz saxophonist Rahsaan Roland Kirk.
Born as Conesha Monét Owens, this California – Bay Area native, was touched with the gift that only God could provide, the gift to truly move people. Given the talents of all that performing arts can give, including improv and dramatic acting, dance/choreography, topped with a 5 octave vocal range in modern and classical music, it’s no wonder this “gifted” singer-songwriter, arranger, and thespian has been sought after by some of the industry’s best, most diverse and accomplished artists and producers.
