The powerful vocals of Joanna Weston

Joanna Weston released her debut studio album on 5 April 2014. Moving from Guildford in the UK, she has been based in The Netherlands working with some incredible musicians, fine tuning each of the songs that appear on this beautiful album. Now released, she is so excited that it’s finally out in the world for all to hear because the end result of all their hard work is truly fantastic!

Joanna and her band took the stage on 5 April 2014 in Utrecht to celebrate the release of ‘Inside Out’, where they performed all tracks, which appear on the album as well as songs from her two previous EPs. ‘Inside Out’ includes audience favourites from her live gigs ‘I Know’, ‘Say So’, and ‘What Are We Fighting For’ plus some new songs that have never been heard before. 

The Album contains 11 tracks, which are all written by Joanna and performed with her band, made up of musicians from Utrecht, and was recorded, mixed and mastered at Studio Frank Rijk (Utrecht) by Frank van der Meulen.

Born in London, her two previously released EPs ‘What Do I Do?’ (2010) and ‘Pieces Of The Puzzle’ (2011) have both been well received and appreciated by music lovers.

Joanna is a storyteller who conveys her experiences with great flair. Her music is upbeat and ‘real life’. It is a fine combination of folk-pop that you would want to hear time again.

Hypnotic vocals with her beautifully crafted music showcase her skill and versatility as a songwriter and performer. Joanna’s performances are always uplifting, you must see her live!

Many radio stations around the world, including BBC Introducing, Eagle Radio, Kane FM, the Tom Robinson's BBC6 Music 'Fresh On The Net' show regularly support her music. She was also recently invited by Dutch radio stations including Radio1.nl to play live and promote her new debut album. 

Whether a prestigious venue, festival or intimate house concert, Joanna loves to perform. She has played shows in the UK, Turkey, Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands and is excited to take her album on tour so look out for forthcoming tour dates very soon.

The first thing that hits you from the moment you click play is Joanna's unique and powerful vocals and if that wasn't enough you are also dazzled by beautiful and catchy instrumentals.

Desire is not only upbeat but also a moving tune which is haunting in places.

Don't Stop is a enjoyable up tempo song with a Spanish style guitar arrangement.

What We Are Fighting for is a laid back and more somber track.

Little Things has a bluesy feel to it and the instrumental arrangement is something special.

Say So is a love song with lyrics which come straight from the heart.

Drive features a beautiful stringed arrangement.

I'm Not Ok is another melancholy themed number, this time covering the sadness of heartbreak.

In contrast to the last track I Can't Believe is a much more upbeat and cheerful song plus Joanna's vocals towards the end are a real delight.

Inside Out is a beautiful song about soul searching and trying to find your place in life.

I Know is a fast paced and cheerful with beautiful and heartfelt lyrics, this track is a great way for Joanna to conclude 11 elegant melodies.
