Joni brings her high energy, solo acoustic, instrument-swapping live set to Greenbelt for the first time in 2015. Combining ground-breaking looping techniques with sublime musicianship, Joni builds a wall of sound in front of her audiences’ eyes and ears.
Joni’s first solo performance was aged 12 at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Since then, she has honed her craft the traditional way, performing extensively, from stadiums in Germany (opening for Phil Collins on his Farewell Tour), to intimate bars in London and Paris.
Featured as an ‘inspirational teenager’ by The Independent and ‘one to watch’ by PRS for Music, Joni is the only UK alumna of Phil Collins’ Little Dreams Foundation and an unprecedented double winner of LIPA’s Make it Break it Songwriting Contest. In May 2015, Joni earned the accolade of being the only solo artist to be selected through to the Indie Week Europe Final Showcase in Manchester. Signed to Chelsea Music Publishing in 2014, and currently featured on BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, etc, and with a busy schedule of gigs and festival appearances in 2015, this is a unique and exciting musical experience not to be missed!
