ABOUT JOANNA MICHELLE
JoAnna is a rare breath of musical and performance authenticity in today's over-produced, hyper-digitized music scene. A native of Wichita, Kansas, she spent the majority of her childhood studying and emulating hundreds of artists of both past and present generations, appreciating and "sponging" everything from southern rock to hip hop, country/western to pop, rock to rap, and everything in between. Having started ballet and tap lessons at the age of four, it soon became very clear that music, dance and performance are her passions. As early as first grade, JoAnna began piano lessons, and has since become a true multi-instrumentalist - proficient at drums, guitar, keyboards, and vocals. While developing her musical abilities, she has also continued to pursue dance studies, focusing on hip hop, ballet, modern, jazz, and tap. After years of studying and emulating others, JoAnna has found her own voice, and made her worldwide debut in 2016 with her break-through single, "My Snap Story." Her second single "Entourage (I Am My Own)" was released in October of 2016. The inspiration for "Entourage
" was the recent experiences while breaking into the music industry. She plays the drums on the "Entourage
" track as well as lead vocals. JoAnna loves to be on stage performing in front of people, connecting with her audience and fans. This up and coming young artist is excited to begin her musical journey, and take you along for the ride. Stay tuned.
