Biography of Joanna Eden

The over-whelming response to Joanna Eden’s self-penned album My Open Eye has led to support slots for Jamie Cullum and Nerina Pallot and now the legendary Buena Vista Social Club. Her newly raised profile has brought about a distribution deal, new management, BBC Radio 2 airplay, a live performance on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and some serious press [Mojo:- “melody, mystery and bite!”] My Open Eye had it’s nationwide release in April 2007. With active support from supermarket chains Waitrose and Tescos, Joanna’s feet have hardly touched the ground!

2008 finds Eden collaborating again with songwriting partner and guitarist Ian Wilson (co-writer of More Than This) and they are currently to be found in the studio working on Joanna's fourth album; working title "Falling Out of Grace".

Cambridge based singer-songwriter Eden dedicated “My Open Eye” to her family, especially husband Charlie and daughter Drousha. I started working on “My Open Eye” when Drousha was 10 months and I was just emerging from that hazy bubble of new-motherhood! The whole album was a kind of therapy – finding “me” again and re-defining the world through the eyes of a mother.”

For the daughter of a professional musician and a drama teacher and writer perhaps becoming a singer/songwriter was an obvious step but it didn’t always feel like joining the family firm “I know my Dad really worried about my career choice, he probably had visions of me starving in some garret. I wrote the song “Father’s Day” (on Eden’s first album “A Little Bird Told Me”) about those emotions.

“A Little Bird Told Me” also features five original songs which were welcomed by the media (Michael Parkinson instructing his listeners to “seek this one out”) and reviewers (“a Martini-cool voice with something of the cookie wisdom of Rickie Lee Jones and a song-writing style to match” Mojo).

At the urging of a Radio 2 producer, last year Joanna released Moving Shadows on the 33Jazz Label; an album of covers mixing classic 60s pop (Alfie, Let’s Stay Together, Yesterday) with jazz standards (The Midnight Sun, Nature Boy, A Night in Tunisia). Moving Shadows has a simple jazz trio line-up with collaborators Julie Walkington on double bass and Charlie Price on drums and percussion.
