Joanna Borromeo is a treasure in Calgary's soul/jazz music scene, a Juno-nominated vocalist, pianist, composer, and music teacher influenced by some of the deepest, most beautiful musicians in history.
Her music has topped numerous R&B/Soul and Jazz radio charts across Canada and has earned her two major award nominations. In 2013, Joanna was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Best Soul/R&B Album of the Year. In 2014, Joanna was nominated for a Juno Award for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. Her music has also landed her opportunities to perform in some of California’s most significant music venues for jazz, hip hop, R&B, and soul, including The Blue Whale in LA and Yoshi’s in San Francisco. Along the way, she has performed at the Edmonton International Jazz Festival, The Medicine Hat Jazz Festival, and the Toronto International Jazz Festival. She has opened for Laila Biali, The Sextones, and Jeremy Passion, in addition to other artists and bands while on tour.
Prior to starting a career as a solo artist, Joanna has worked extensively as a multi-genre musician in Toronto, performing in local venues and touring across Canada, The UK, and the Caribbean. Currently, Joanna runs her own music teaching business and maintains a regular performing schedule as a singer-pianist for special events. Taking a break from touring, Joanna is developing new material to record for her next album.
