Joan As Police Woman
Extraordinary New York artist Joan As Police Woman (Joan Wasser) returns to Australia in October 2019 launching her 3-disc extravaganza Joanthology with a very special series of solo shows.
In May Joan and her full band graced stages from The Metro in Sydney to the Gold Coast’s Spiegeltent on an Australian tour. The majority of her shows sold out and an extra performance added in Melbourne.
This October Joan brings her solo show to the Australian road for a series of intimate performances. For this rare solo incarnation, Joan strips her sound down to its true essence, performing her songbook on piano and guitar. This intimate solo concert format is something music fans have longed to hear. This tour is not to be missed.
Since the release of debut album Real Life in 2006 Joan’s sound has naturally evolved through six breath-taking studio albums, hundreds of collaborations and over a thousand live concert performances. Her recent release Damned Devotion (2018) is a testament to her insight and the ruminative reflection that demarcates her oeuvre. She has collaborated and performed with a host of incredible artists including John Cale, Lou Reed, David Sylvian, Antony & The Johnsons and Rufus Wainwright.
