Joanna Finch is a uniquely entertaining singer/songwriter who swings smoothly between jazz/blues and original, contemporary folk. Her songs have been described as tender, biting, quirky and sensual. Her voice conveys spine tingling emotion and she is renowned for her captivating stage presence. Joanna's influences are as divergent as her writing style with comparisons made to Jane Siberry, Cole Porter and Tom Waits.
