Joanna Cooke has a voice that mesmerises whenever it is heard.
Her high quality vocals, and top-line writing skills ,have been used internationally by dance music producers in Brazil, Australia, South Africa and Europe.
Yet, it's with her own music that some of the biggest strides are being made. A first single "Last June" with long time collaborator Nathan Austin, was followed in 2015 by Joanna's well-received debut EP "Remember Me". Featuring four of her own compositions, the record saw Joanna's expressive and distinctive vocals work the full range of emotions from warm, cultured and classy to heartfelt powerhouse expression. Live show work leapt to well over 100 appearances a year, plus several radio sessions.
That momentum has been maintained. The release of another EP, 2016's "Wound Up", with four more self-compositions, displays a strong range of material, providing the perfect platform for the soulful vocals and melodic qualities at the heart of Joanna's growing reputation. Together with a busy live schedule and a growing fan-base, there has been increase media interest too, with TV and radio appearances for Joanna on both the BBC One TV (South West) Spotlight Summer Sessions, and the 'BBC Introducing' Devon shows.
