Miranda Joan is a singer/songwriter born in Montréal and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Both the English and French Canadian cultures have left their mark on her artistry. Now based in New York City, Joan’s multi-cultural upbringing and love of soul music and its many shades, finds her sound floating somewhere between soul, pop, and singer/songwriter.
Following the release of her debut EP Still , which fused retro soul with an electronic edge, blurring the lines between old school and contemporary, Joan released the irresistibly catchy track Free featuring her stunning, raspy, soulful vocals over colorful synths and energetic melodies.
Joan is set to unveil her highly anticipated new music, detailing her own experiences with the hope that it offers a different perspective on love and relationships. Produced by Julian Pollack aka J3P0, the new releases provide an intimate look into the musicians life, highlighting a female-forward tone. The music has an underlying theme of empowerment, uncovering and connecting with one’s own strength and the importance of self-love. Joan confides, “This latest body of work is a reflection of my journey through the lens of finding my footing as a woman and the importance of my community of women who support me on this path”. Miranda’s new body of work provides a fuller picture of who she is as an artist.
Joan has performed on international tours, as well as playing to sold-out audiences across New York City. She is a co-host and co-founder of Femme Jam (NYC’s first all-female led jam session), which creates a space in the music community that both shines a light on female musicians and also fosters a safe and inclusive space for women to play, network and gain exposure. 'Happy To Have You' and 'Girlfriend' are due for release late summer and fall of 2019.
