As a composer, producer and accomplished musician, Joanne leads a vibrant and diverse musical life. From touring with Marilyn Manson to scoring Genndy Tartakovky’s Emmy Award winning ‘Primal’, Joanne’s unique musical voice and unbridled dedication has made her ‘one to watch’ in the industry advocating for women in film.

Joanne received her first class bachelor’s degree from the prestigious Royal Welsh Conservatoire of Music where she discovered a love for noise. She began programming live reactive music and composed numerous works for surround sound electronics. She also completed many full Orchestral works leading to her love for film music, in her mind – a combination of the two genres. Joanne graduated having scored 16 independent films along side her studies and immediately relocated to Los Angeles where she began work with Tyler Bates on Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.

Bates noted Joanne’s drive and the two have since worked closely on countless projects together with some of todays most established directors such as James Gunn, William Friedkin, Zack Snyder, Joe Johnston and David Leitch.

Outside of film and television Joanne has worked on distinguished video game titles such as Sony Playstation’s God Of War: Ascension and Gorilla Games’ Killzone: Shadow Falls. She also arranged music for the Disney Land ‘Mission: Breakout!’ theme park attraction as well as producing a spooky punk-rock song for the ride’s Halloween season.

Joanne has always had a passion for song writing and live performance. As a keen vocalist and percussionist she has performed on stage with Don Felder, Tom Jones, Alison Mosshart, Tim Minchin, Marilyn Manson and many more. She fronted her own band ‘And Then There’s Jo’ playing regularly on the legendary Sunset Strip before releasing her single and stylish music video ‘Bad Girls’ in January 2013. Joanne took more of a technical role when joining Marilyn Manson on tour and was recruited to update the band’s live playback system. She joined the ‘Hell Not Hallelujah’ Tour to train the crew on how to use this new customized set-up.

The highly anticipated return of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack was Joanne’s first co-score with Tyler Bates. The show premiered at the sold out Ace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles where Joanne and a band of talented musicians surprised guests with an explosive opening performance of the show’s original score.

Joanne thrives writing music for Television, boasting a wide range of musical genres her credits include Marvel’s The Punisher, The Purge, ABC’s Stumptown, The Exorcist, Salem, Kingdom and most recently composing season 1 of ‘Primal’ that won 3 Emmy Awards in 2020.

In recent years Joanne’s name has been a regular at the box office with record breaking titles such as Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw, John Wick I, II & III, Guardians Of The Galaxy I & II, Deadpool 2 and The Spy Who Dumped Me. Many of these have allowed Joanne to record at the legendary Abbey Road studios, an item off her bucket list!

Joanne continues to mold her hybrid sound of experimental electronics blended with organic instrumentation creating a unique palette that is original to her.
