London born, LA / NYC based vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Joanna Wallfisch has emerged as a unique voice in the singer-songwriter world. With a classical and jazz background her music combines post-folk and art-song with a poetic lyricism which The New York Times described as “sensitive and deep”. She is a master in the art of live vocal looping and creates beguiling vocal soundscapes to accompany her songs. The Telegraph called her virtuosic performance as “sublime and unique”.
Since 2011 Joanna has released three critically acclaimed albums, her fourth, “Blood and Bone” was released in 2017. “Gardens In My Mind”, (her third album, released in 2016), features pianist Dan Tepfer and the award-winning Sacconi Quartet, showcasing Joanna’s “crystalline delivery” (Downbeat) and lush string quartet writing. Downbeat gave this album four stars, calling it “an exquisite singer-songwriter album”, while PopMatters called it “a truly beautiful listen from start to finish”.
“A truly beautiful listen from start to finish”
“An exquisite singer-songwriter album. . .refined and elegant”
— DownBeat ****
“Bold, dramatic and powerful”
“Ushering you into a magical sound world that references everything from The Third Stream stylings of Chic Corea and Gary Burton’s Lyric Suite for Sextet to the songs of Kurt Weil, and everything in between, Gardens In My Mind is an album full of beautifully crafted pieces that all make an indelible impression.”
— Jazzwise ****
“Beautiful, intimately confessional and expressive. . . a compelling journey of experimentation and adventure”
