JOANovARC THE FIRST UK FEMALE BAND TO FEATURE ON THE ‘ROCKBAND’ XBOX 360! SUPPORTED BY GIBSON! REVIEWED IN KERRANG
The girls hail from London and the Home Counties and have built up their strong musicianship and strong representation of women in rock through performances worldwide. Initially mentored by Girl School, JOANovARC have combined influences from Motorhead, Metallica, Joan Jett, AC/DC, Led Zepplin, the Foofighters and Kings of Leon to create their own unique sound.
JOANovARC are currently promoting their 2nd release for Rockband 3 on the Xbox 360 with their Japanese track ‘Say Sayonara’. The band held their single launch at the famous 100 Club in London in 2012!
The girls recently returned from their american tour showcasing on the main stage at the Florida Music Festival. After JOANovARCs performance they met Michael Waggoner, Managing Director of Gibson Guitars USA, who is giving the band a great deal of support by loaning them Gibson guitars worldwide!!
JOANovARC have performed worldwide - in the USA, Mediterranean, the Caribbean and have extensively toured Europe. They have performed at the Harley Davidson Chopper Show in Slovakia, Germany and have electrified audiences in the UK with venues including the London Astoria, Cafe de Paris, the Garage, Barfly and the O2 Indigo. The girls have played at festivals including Rhythms of the World, Namfest, Fordham Festival, Brighton Pride, Go Go Festival, Cambridge rock, BMF Biker Festival and many more. They have also supported Girl School, Toploader, Marillion and Bad Company’s Dave Colwell.
In late 2011 the girls were promoting their first Rock Band release with their track 'Sisters' followed by a successful launch at club 85 and the BBC club in London. After the launch and the release of the promo video online JOANovARC gained a lot of media coverage and a new worldwide fanbase!
In April 2011 the girls shot their music video 'Peace of Mind' with Rachel Price of BBC Bristol. The video has had thousands of hits on Youtube!
In may 2011 JOANovARC released their debut EP 'Beneath the Sky' on iTunes and were busy promoting the EP on radio and TV stations across the world. They then signed a publishing deal with Speegra Music in the UK and Veal Steen in the USA.
“Their sound is stylish powerful and certainly has a direct lineage to Girlschool and Rock Goddess. In fact, there’s a strong case for saying that this quartet are the natural successors to those two bands.”
