Winner of the 2010 Independent Music Award for best acoustic song, this Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist makes her Rogue debut to launch her new CD. With echoes of accordion-driven French and Gypsy music, jazz, folk, blues and more, her music encompasses influences from around the world and from a vast array of musical forms.

Joanna developed her cosmopolitan tastes growing up in multicultural Toronto in a family with Italian-American, New Zealand and Brazilian roots; a well-nurtured thirst for new cultural experiences is unmistakable in Joanna's music. Her songs show influences from klezmer and Balkan choral music to tango and flamenco. She is a skilled guitarist, pianist, and clarinettist, but her live shows also feature other, less conventional, instruments - many of her own creation.
