"Review: ‘Joan’ Live @The Rose Hill 20.01.11"

Taking the stage as a trio of nothing more than drums, bass, and voice is a hard act to pull off. The musicianship needs to be excellent. Thankfully ‘Joan’ are excellent.
The full ’Hot Rod’ drum sound from percussionist Tom, and Mark’s melodic & inventive bass form a perfect backdrop for the vocal talent of femme fatal, Gennine, to captivate the audience. And that she did!
Their performance was nothing short of great.
Hard to pull off?
Not for ‘Joan’, more like hard to follow.

"The kind of band who seem to take pleasure in tearing out your still beating heart"

The main reason Joan are one of my favorite bands, other than Gennine's endlessly charming, enchanting and beautifully mesmerising voice, is that they are the kind of band who seem to take pleasure in tearing out your still beating heart so that you can see how black it is before you die! - Tristan McLenahan - 80's Matchbox B-Line Disaster


"Catch 'em while you can."

Joan are the most original, feral, musical band I've heard since I was in New Orleans five years ago. Catch 'em while you can. - Tom Bowen - Redlands Palomino Company


"Overheard at the bar"

"Great tits, nice voice, depressing songs.". - Walmer Castle

Bio

Joan are a Brighton based acoustic jazz duo, evoking the sultry jazz style of the 1940's and 50's with a modern vibe. Gennine's voice delivers witty and heartfelt lyrics with a sound that will melt your heart and chill your spine. This is reinforced by Mark’s innovative style of bass playing; use of a tone bar and a resonator creates a unique sound.

The songs carry timeless narratives of love and despair, these are intertwined with adaptations of covers as diverse as Rihanna, Motörhead, The Shamen and Peggy Lee.
