"Jo, you know how to perform and move people emotionally. You really are a star darling." Anita Wardell renowned Jazz singer Originally trained in opera and have performed and played musical theatres across the UK. My love of jazz has taken me on a journey performing in jazz venues and festivals for the past twenty years. I sang at The Cork Jazz festival no less than 4 times and have worked with many seasoned musicians including John China, Roland Perrin and Terry Davis. I have spent many years regularly performing at the Mill Hill Jazz Club. I have also performed at many corporate events and sang in St James Palace. I have an exceptionally wide repertoire which covers jazz standards from Ella Fitzgerald to Norah Jones as well as Cabaret and Motown.

He has played across Europe at festivals and at Ronnie Scott’s, Jazz Cafe and Wembley Arena amongst others.

I went to see Jo's band playing at Builders Arms, New Barnet, in around November 2022. Not only does Joanne have a wonderful voice and a gorgeous presence, the band were also fantastic. They worked as one and gave space for each other to show off their amazing talents. At times Joanne sang songs to upflift and make me want to dance. At others I was moved to tears, such that Jo sang with such heart and emotion. I look forward to seeing Jo perform again and again.
