Lovingly crafted indie folk/pop, with high energy, live-looping performances from award winning songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
Joni’s first solo performance was aged 12 at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Since then she has honed her craft the traditional way, performing extensively across the UK, mainland Europe and North America.
Featured as an ‘inspirational teenager’ by The Independent and ‘one to watch’ by PRS for Music, Joni is the only UK alumna of Phil Collins’ Little Dreams Foundation and an unprecedented double winner of the ‘Make it Break it’ song writing contest, judged by Chris Martin and awarded by Sir Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts.
In May 2015, Joni become the only solo artist to reach the Indie Week Europe final showcase in Manchester, leading to an invitation to travel to Toronto in October to represent the UK at Indie Week Canada with her unique live show.
Joni’s 4-track EP, Letters from the West Coast was also released in 2015. Recorded at The Cottage Studio, on the banks of Loch Fyne and at home on the West Coast of Lancashire, it was quickly followed by single releases, ‘Everybody Says So’ and ‘Rebound Jack’. Written, produced, arranged and recorded by Joni, they capture the intense creative energy and sublime musicianship of an exciting young artist on the rise.
But for the complete experience, catch one of Joni’s solo performances, where seamless instrument swapping and ground -breaking looping techniques combine to build a wall of sound live on stage. A unique visual and musical experience not be missed… or forgotten!
2016 sees Joni in growing demand as a strings arranger, session musician and collaborative songwriter, as well as an artist and live performer in her own right.
