Profile: Joanna Chapman-Smith


Joanna Chapman-Smith grew up with her New Zealand-born father, Italian-American mother, in a family of six on a quiet street on the edge of Toronto. Her father fell in love with the folk music of Eastern Canada when he came to Canada in 1983, singing his four children to sleep with these and the songs from his home every night. With the Toronto traffic rushing on in the distance, this is how Joanna learned music.

When Joanna moved out west to Vancouver, British Columbia - her music met a vast new array of cultural traditions. That was five years ago and since that time, Joanna has grown into her power as a singer and as a songwriter. In 2007 she released her first full-length album, Eyre Corvidae (Journey of the Crow Family). The songs in this collection are personal melodies, soothing rhythms and rocking laments. Influenced by a wide variety of traditions, her style is a satisfying blend of sounds. She ties her sound together with a unique vocal style that is sensitive and powerful. Joanna's love of music, and her joy of life come across in her music and voice. It is pure, passionate, and playful - as is her approach to music.

Find her music at http://www.joannacs.com or hear Joanna live with the Glee Club and friends Blue Island Trio, 30 Toes (Dance Company) and "Bad Poetry" by Melissa Bandura, Natalie Hobbs & Marnie Norwich
