Johanna Burnheart is a German violinist, singer and composer.
After studying classical violin, piano and voice during childhood, Johanna’s musical focus
developed into jazz.
In 2013, she enrolled at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London as the first jazz violin
undergraduate student of the school and graduated in 2017 with another year as a fellow to follow.
As well as being a regular member of Rosie Turton’s band, Johanna has collaborated with key
players from the London scene such as Yazz Ahmed and Maisha.
Since forming her own band end of 2018, Johanna released her debut album simply called
“Burnheart” with Ropeadope Records on October 30th 2020. Besides the positive reviews in
Jazzwise Magazine, MOJO and Backseatmafia among others, Johanna was chosen as one of 30 best
new artists for 2021 by the Guardian.
