Joanna Pascale

“When I happen on a new discovery, I just can’t wait to shout out my secret to the world. From seemingly nowhere comes…Joanna…and I’m absolutely like putty in her able hands.”- In Tune International Magazine
Since emerging onto Philadelphia’s jazz scene, Pascale has established herself as a compelling and skilled vocalist. “Joanna is a highly sophisticated singer,” claims Philadelphia Metro. She has a working repertoire of over four hundred songs and has appeared and recorded with jazz giants such as trumpeter and Director of Jazz Studies at Temple University, Terell Stafford; sax pyrotechnic and critic’s rave, Tim Warfield; legendary drummer, Mickey Roker, piano virtuoso, Cyrus Chestnut and others.

She performs three nights a week with her quintet at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia. In August 2006, she was selected for the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour roster. On top of a busy performing and recording schedule, the Temple alum is also a member of the vocal faculty at Temple University. She teaches private voice and ensemble lessons, as well as conducts performance practices and workshops.
According to All Music Guide, “She not only has solid vocal chops; she has soul.” Her first recording, When Lights are Low, was met with much critical acclaim.
