St Joan’s refreshing and honest lyrics force you to have a long awaited breath, as their raw and passionate melodies dig deep into your heart and soul. St Joan crafts music that navigates the contours of the listener’s emotions, through expressing their pains, trials and joys which mirror what (I’d guess) we’ve all experienced at some time or other.

Based in Sydney the band began writing together in 2014 and forming their unique sound as they performed throughout cities, venues and bars as they toured. Great stuff guys, very touching and warm show. Which stands out in what can (nowadays) be a very loud and hectic music scene. Keep writing and performing with this style, as it is non-confronting, welcoming and enjoyable to be a part of, listen too and watch.
