Joanna DeGrâce is a nurse, wellness coach, and singer-songwriter from Montreal. She released her first single, called Hourglass, on April 15th, 2022. The song was played on over 40 Canadian radio stations.
Joanna has been singing since she was a child and wrote songs for a rock band when she was a young adult. But she stopped pursuing music when she became a nurse.
In 2020, Joanna’s life changed when she was reassigned to work in a place where many people were sick and dying from the pandemic. This experience made her realize that she shouldn’t wait to follow her dreams. She salvaged old music tracks from her computer, collaborated with other musicians, and released Hourglass.
Joanna’s second single, called The Sad Chase, is a rock song with hints of blues. It was released in the fall of 2022 and received over 10,000 streams on Spotify. She plans to release a third single and her first EP soon.
“Twisted” is a powerful and emotional song with philosophical and relatable lyrics inspired by toxic situations. The captivating melodic intro draws listeners in, and the innocent and vulnerable vocals amplify the emotions of the song. The instrumental accompaniments, including a deep bass, add extra layers to the music. While there were some issues with the production/recording of the bass hitting its limit, the song overall showcases the artist’s talent for creating moving and memorable music.
Joanna’s music is a blend of folk-americana, rock, and electronic sounds. She is influenced by artists like David Gray, Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, and Imogen Heap.
Aside from pursuing her music career, Joanna is currently enrolled in a music business mentorship class with Laura Gagné. She is learning about self-promotion and marketing as an independent artist and is networking with other musicians for future collaborations.
Joanna’s lyrics are intimate and vulnerable, and her music style is a blend of different genres, making her music unique and diverse. Her passion for music and helping people through her work as a nurse and wellness coach has been a driving force for her success as an artist.
With her talent and determination, Joanna DeGrâce is an inspiration to many who aspire to pursue their dreams and passions, no matter the challenges they face.
