Joan’s recent solo tour throughout Europe has had the press raving. The Metro UK’s David Bennum proclaimed: “Countless acts have pondered love’s mysteries but few have surpassed Wasser in exploring its mystique.”

Since the release of debut album Real Life in 2006, Joan’s sound has naturally evolved through six breath-taking studio albums, hundreds of collaborations and over a thousand live concert performances.

Her 2018 release Damned Devotion is a testament to her insight and the ruminative reflection that demarcates her oeuvre.
