“The UK’s answer to Diana Krall and Norah Jones” Time Out 


“The reason I Sing” Sam Smith


Unmistakeably English in the same way as Christine McVie, Stevie Winwood, or Nick Drake, Joanna Eden is a singer-songwriter who grew up in the heart of England listening to UK artists playing American blues, jazz and pop. Mojo magazine describes her songwriting as having ‘melody, mystery and bite’. 


Joanna’s new album LOVE QUIET reflects upon a time of peace and seclusion in the strange world of 2020 – ironically, although this peace was caused by a global crisis, it was almost heaven-sent for  Joanna as she recovered from a damaging relationship. In the quiet, a new love emerged bringing about an intensely creative period and some intoxicating music. A subsequent writing and recording trip to South America has drawn Joanna’s music into a  vibrant new sound. Audiences can expect the combination of singer/songwriter storytelling with joyous syncopation and rhythmic interplay!


With six albums to her credit, Joanna is considered one of the finest singer-pianists in the UK with a style that covers a broad spectrum, through jazz, Soul, Brazil, and blues. Her beautifully crafted compositions give life to personal and expressive lyrics, which – like her songwriting hero Joni Mitchell – question and reflect life’s changes.


Alongside singer/pianist Joanna Eden, her band are:

Uruguayan bass player Andrés Lafone studied at the Guildhall School of Music and was one of the pioneers of the UK Latin/Jazz scene. He has over 50 albums to his credit and has toured/played/ recorded with Airto Moreira, Snowboy, Jon Cleary, Basia, Matt  Bianco, Da Lata, Negrocan, Monica Vasconcelos, Grand Union  Orchestra, Mike Lindup and others.


Uruguayan guitarist Guillermo Hill, made his name in Uruguay playing with Fernando Cabrera and Mariana Ingold before moving to England and studying at the Guildhall School of Music. Since then he has become a regular on the jazz/Brazilian scene appearing with artists such as Ola Onabule, Mica Paris, Tom Jones,  John Crawford, Monica Vasconcelos, Luna Cohen – a great improviser and composer.


Drummer George Double has played for Mica Paris, Art Themen,  John Etheridge, Jack Jones, and Dame Shirley Bassey (to name but a few). He has performed in the West End and all over the UK and is a leading drum educator and drum kit consultant for Trinity  College London.
