Artist Bio

Influences:   Janis Ian, Joan Baez, Carole King, John Denver, Bob Dylan. Gillian Welch, Patty Griffin

I am a singer-song writer from Johannesburg South Africa. I have been writing songs since the beginning of 2013. This is my third FAWM. (Gosh time flies!)

I have a trip to Egypt scheduled slap bang in the middle of FAWM this year but may take my laptop and USB mic and see what happens.

If there are any Band in a box users out there that may be interested, I recently launched a course called “First song With Band in a box”. The link is here

    Dear Joanne! I noticed only now you put music to "Eye of the Strom" - and in such a beautiful way! I love the melody and the chorus is awesome and memrable... And your singing is the icing on the cake... Thank you so much! May I ask you for a favor? Could you be so kind and send me the MP3 on my email address, which is
    ? Thanks so much again!

    BTW, your SoundCloud link is busted: the profile form wants just the account ID, not the full URL.
