About

Joanne sits in a theatre seat, she has medium length straight brown hair and wears a necklace overr her maroon sweater dress

I am a contemporary cellist, based in London and working across the UK, playing my sparkly purple electric cello.

I am a solo and ensemble performer, a natural collaborator and improviser. My composition and playing style is sensuous and textural, bringing feeling and emotion to each piece.

Alongside my work as a performer I also regularly deliver workshops and sessions using music, sensory activities and digital arts.

I am currently developing a new interactive electric cello experience for ages 14+ called Defiant Journey. Funded by Arts Council England, this R&D project involves music, storytelling, interactivity, digital arts and lighting and has accessibility and inclusion woven through it throughout.

"The whole experience was awesome. The power of the cello is amazing."
