With classy soulful vocals and honest heartfelt songs, Joanna's voice will stop you in your tracks, then float you away on a warm summer's breeze to a cloud of gentle enchantment. Joanna's impressive original material blends Soul, Jazz, Blues and Pop to finely honed, honey coated, melodic tranquillity.
Appearances on south-west BBC TV and radio, national airplay of her BBC Introducing work, #1 Club chart hits in Australia and South Africa and support slots with chart-topping artists Paloma Faith & Rag'n'Bone Man, plus quality acts JP Cooper, Beth Rowley and Jo Harman, all point to a star in the ascendency. It is with absolute pleasure and delight we welcome her to the Holbefest main stage.
