How did Andy Samberg met his wife Joanna

Andy was a big fan Joanna’s music and he would go to her shows. In one of those serendipitous moment, the pair were introduced by a mutual friend and the couple soon hit off.

Though it may seem like the duo have insanely un-matching personality, but it turns out that Joanna totally loved Samberg’s sense of humor and the the offbeat videos he made with the Lonely Island.

Interesting facts about Andy’s sweetheart Joanna

“Progressive” Parents

Her mother was an internist (someone who specializes in internal medicine) and her father was an oncologist ( a doctor for tumors). They called themselves “progressive minded people”. Joanna was not allowed exposure to either Radio or Television because her parents as she puts it were “kind of idealists when it came to hoping they could protect us from bad influences, like violent movies, or stupid stuff”.

Insane Vocal Range

Joanna is a Soprano meaning she has the highest vocal range of all voice types. Though mildly bashed for her lyrics, she was hailed as a genius for the vocals for her album “Divers“.

Joanna, however, expresses dissatisfaction that her voice is childlike and un-trainable.

A Generous Woman

Joanna is a talented woman and in fact very benevolent. She says that she would give the CD’s of her albums if someone wants a CD but doesn’t have any money though she admitted that she wouldn’t want to “do it forever”.

An affinity to music

Joanna claims that she intends to produce sounds that people are not used to hearing from harps. She says that her relation with folk music is so deep rooted that she “can’t get away from completely“.

She says she wants to make music that somehow connects to the things that she loves in American music.

A curious case of musical instruments

Joanna asked her parents if she could learn to play harp, a request to which her parents responded positively to. But her harp instructor suggested that she was too young for harp and insisted that she needs to learn piano first.

She eventually learnt piano and switched into harp which she “loved from the first lesson onward.” She began with smaller celtic harps until  her a full-size pedal harp when she was in 7th grade.

Who has Joanna Newsom dated so far?

Before marrying Andy Samberg, Joanna was involved in a relationship with American Guitarist Bill Callahan.
