Sam Smith's singing teacher Joanna Eden will perform songs from her new album tomorrow night.


Tomorrow evening singer Joanna Eden will be performing songs from her new album Truth Tree at St Botolph’s Parish Church in Hadstock, where she recorded the album.

The concert, which will also be the local launch of Joanna’s album starts at 7.30pm. Doors open at 7pm and there will be a licensed bar in the village hall next door.

Joanna said: “I recorded the piano and vocals for my new album at beautiful St Botolph’s Parish Church in Hadstock, so it’s great to be going back there for the local launch.”

Joanna will also sing songs by her favourite artists.

In a twenty year career, Joanna has shared stages with The Buena Vista Social Club, Jamie Cullum, The Blockheads and Ronan Keating as well as her superstar student Sam Smith who was her backing singer as a teenager.

Sam Smith has cited Joanna simply as “the reason I sing”.

He studied with Joanna for nine years although she says: “It didn’t feel like teaching or studying, we were just two kids in a candy shop, loving music together and having fun!”

Joanna’s previous albums have been played on Radio 2 and received rave reviews in publications like Mojo, and so she has high hopes for Truth Tree.

Joanna said: “I’m so excited to be touring this album to beautiful churches, chapels and cathedrals all over the country! If you like the music of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, James Taylor and Kate Bush, Truth Tree should appeal to you”.

Tickets are available at or can be reserved by phone on 01799 526492.
