Bio

Joan & The Giants are an indie alt-pop band from Perth, Western Australia. Formed in 2019 by front woman Grace Newton-Wordsworth and guitarist Aaron Birch.

The trio have come together from unlikely places; Grace from an organic farm down South of Perth and Aaron from a remote Indigenous community outside of Broome called Beagle Bay. They met their drummer Riley in Perth and formed Joan & The Giants.

The band have already had some impressive highlights, which include being the main support act for ‘Odette’ on the Western Australian leg of her ‘Lotus Eater’ Tour, supporting Little Quirks, Arno Faraji, The Number 1 INXS Tribute show in Aus, as well as playing local festivals and lineups like Shift Youth Festival, WAMfest 'Lot Party' and more. Grace will also be playing at GTM Bunbury 2019 in a collaboration with WA electronic duo ‘Feels’ as a feature on their track 'Circles', coming soon.

March 4th 2019, marked the release of the trios debut single ‘Hold Me’, the band set out on their first headline WA regional tour throughout March and April, playing 15 shows in support of their debut. On May 6th, Joan & The Giants are set to release their second single ‘Cruel’ and will again embark on a WA regional tour. The trio will release a third single ‘What Love Is’ in August and will follow up with a 5 song EP in the latter part of 2019.

Intriguingly delicate, the way this tune comes together is quite beautiful.
