Blending Soul, Jazz, Blues and Pop, Joanna has built up an impressive collection of original material, finely honed & in demand with a live schedule of over 120 shows a year.
Appearances on south west BBC TV and radio, national airplay of her local BBC Introducing work, #1 Club chart hits in Australia and South Africa and support slots with Rag'n'Bone Man, JP Cooper & Beth Rowley all point to a star in the ascendancy.
With three EPs and a single so far, Joanna has already released a strong supply of well-received quality recordings. Her latest record 'Some Say' out 01.08.18 to strengthen her stance & sound as a UK songwriter & vocal force of note.
If you want piano based melodies with a sharp ear for a hook and a sense of soul influenced by the likes of Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin in a modern style then you’ve found it. And if you want all of that wrapped up in a powerful live performance with the kind of personality that can win round main stages at festivals, clubs and venues alike then Joanna Cooke is the one for you.
