Exploding onto the international music scene in early 2015 with the acclaimed singles Live Rock ’n’ Roll and White Trash, JOANovARC’s status as the new ‘Queens of rock’ is about to rise even higher with their debut album, Ride Of Your Life. Released on 9th November through Red Vixen Records/Universal, available through HMV stores UK and outlets around the world.The album was recorded at the legendary Rockfield studios and produced by Grammy winning producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters).

It brings together new songs with a number of the band’s live favourites, including the latest single Dragon In The Sky. Formed in 2004 by sisters Sam and Shelley Walker, Deborah Wildish joined later the same year. After five years as a trio, Laura Ozholl completed the line-up in 2009 and formed a new line up in 2019 helping JOANovARC to quickly solidify its reputation for exceptional musicianship, songwriting and unrelenting hard work. The band is already becoming a global phenomenon, with electrifying performances on tour in Europe, Japan, Asia, the Middle East, Caribbean and a tour in California USA with an electrifying performance supporting ‘Huntress’ at the famous Viper Rooms in Hollywood Sunset Blvd.

The band’s singles have been playlisted by radio stations Planet Rock (including by the legendary Alice Cooper) and Total Rock, gaining rave reviews from the international rock music press, including Classic Rock and Kerrang! Joanovarc have been nominated for the ‘Angels of Rock’ Hard Rock Hell award 2017 alongside rock legends Girlschool and Rock Goddess. 2017 best song in the top 20 of the Hard Rock Hell radio charts. Planet Rock ‘Best new band’ award nomination 2018. Classic Rock Magazine ‘Track of the week’ with their new single ‘Jane’ and the JOANovARC album is out now with stunning reviews.

In 2016 these have included the Camden Rock festival, Ireland Bike Festival, Harley Davidson Thunder in the Glens festival, the Liverpool Empire, many iconic London venues and with numerous performances at Hard Rock Hell and Planet Rock Festivals in 2017/2018 supporting major international rock acts.

The tour was recorded for a TV documentary, scheduled to be broadcast in 2017.The girls have also featured in the Chinese blockbuster Triumph in the Skies, which starred Sammi Cheng – one of the most popular female singers in Hong Kong.

JOANovARC have won the Gold Award at the International Independent Film Awards for best Sound Track in ‘Is this now’ Premiere in New York City USA in October 2017.

“A pleasure to work with in the studio, great musicians and one of the most hard working bands I know.” Gil Norton – Grammy-winning producer (Foo Fighters )

”I love working with the girls! They have great energy.” John Altman – EastEnders actor and musician

“Best live band that I have seen in a long time!” Stuart Epps – Record producer for Led Zeppelin, Oasis, Elton John and Robbie Williams.

“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.” Malcolm Dome – Classic Rock magazine.

“I love this singer! It sounds like it’s very easy for her to sing. There’s also a fat guitar tone that sounds like a plump nesting bird!” Andrew W.K. – Rock musician (Kerrang! magazine)

“It’s great to hear really great melodies in JOANovARCs music. You don’t hear that too often in rock!” Benji from Skindred

“Sounds wicked! I really have a thing for JOANovARC!” Annie Nightingale – Radio 1

“These girls can shred!” Bruce Dickinson – Iron Maiden “Totally mind blowing and it is no wonder that this band has been recently gigging on the European mainland. All the tracks are of a high calibre alternative rock style, with catchy melodies galore.” Dave Smith – Raven Heart Music

“I love the new track Peace of Mind.” Kelly Betts – BBC Introducing

“London’s JOANovARC kicked off the Wall Street main stage. The four ladies in the band played a terrific set of melodic rock music for the early crowd.” Katt Coffin Florida – Music festival press.
