23 October @ The Ellington Jazz Club ·
Presented by Perth Jazz Society ·

Described by Downbeat Magazine as “an exquisite singer-songwriter”, Joanna’s music conveys a beauty of a many-coloured sort that speaks to straight to the human condition. Her songs reveal personal truths about love, loss, adventure, home and hope. World Music Report described it as  “quintessential heart-music by a vocalist who seems to have connected with the deepest recesses of her being emerging into brightness again with songs of haunting beauty.”

Joanna is a master in the art of live vocal looping and as a multi-instrumentalist plays baritone  ukulele, piano, flute, Indian shruti box, kalimba and melodica. Her music defies genre classification  as she effortlessly imbues her songs with nuances of jazz, classical, art-song, and folk.

She returns to Australia to celebrate the release of her fifth album “Far Away From Any Place Called Home” and will be performing music from her new record at The Ellington Jazz Club.
