Joan was born in Chicago and lived in Paris before settling in London.

Her second big band album 'Sure Thing' was the Observer album of the week, and Michael Parkinson's album of the week. Her third album 'Over Here, Over There' has had frequent airplay since its release.

Joan’s latest album, 'Madeleine Rooms', has been featured as album of the week on Jazz FM, with the album track ‘Move Towards the Light’ included in Jazz FM’s compilation ‘Dinner Jazz’ album.
