Review by Judy Wing 
“Ephemeral Tides is a concert like no other. From a performer who has explored far beyond the predictability of mainstream, Joanna Finch brings an eclectic tide of sophistication, sultry rhythms, and playful themes that embrace the human experience. Her delivery is both experimental and intentional, raw and polished, from interactive soundscapes to beautiful melodies that leave your toes tapping and your soul humming. In this unique concert series, Joanna shares the treasures she’s gathered as an articulate poet/ artist of smooth jazz, sultry burlesque, and soulful folk. It's an intriguing inner expression that celebrates what it means to be human in this dynamic world. Have a seat, get comfortable and hear what the tide reveals.”

L'Oiseau Noir: Miles Black and Joanna Finch in Concert

"L'oiseau," Vancouver island singer, songwriter Joanna Finch and "Noir," Vancouver pianist, multi-instrumentalist Miles Black first met in 2005 when Joanna was recording her acclaimed debut album, In The Arms of Morpheus, and Miles was invited by her producer, Pat Coleman to lead the band. The stars aligned, and Miles' musical genius brought Joanna's songs to the peak of her poetic musings. Both artists share a passion for eclectic, groovy, jazzy, music that spans eras and styles and lets them spread their wings and fly. They share wicked good fun with their playful approach to seriously great music. Interspersed with jazz and pop standards, Joanna's songs written in French, Portuguese, Mandarin and English, L'Oiseau Noir's folk cabaret invites their audience on a timeless, sensual journey. Together they are working on Joanna's 8th studio record with a release set for the spring of 2024.
