English Roots meet South American Soul
Unmistakeably English in the same way as Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Winwood, or Nick Drake, Joanna Eden is a singer songwriter who grew up in the heart of England listening to local bands playing blues, jazz, and American hits with a British tinge.
With nine solo albums to her credit, Joanna is considered one of the finest singer pianists in the UK with style that covers a broad spectrum, through jazz, Soul, Brazil, and blues. Her beautifully crafted compositions give life to personal and expressive lyrics, which - like her songwriting hero Joni Mitchell - question and reflect life’s changes.
Joanna’s interaction with her audience is warm and she has built up a huge following over her 20 year, performing regularly at Ronnie Scott’s Club, The Stables & Apex concert halls. The quality of Joanna’s live work is reflected by the stellar list of artists she has supported including Sir Van Morrison, Jamie Cullum and The Buena Vista Social Club.

He has performed throughout Europe and in Japan, USA, and China at some of the most important venues and music festivals, backing artists such as Basia, Airto, Snowboy, Jon Cleary, Da Lata, Monica Vasconcelos amongst others.
