Equally at home in the worlds of Jazz and the Great American Songbook, Ms. Tatham has appeared in several of the prestigious Mabel Mercer Foundation Cabaret Conventions. Ms. Tatham is currently at work on a second album with legendary pianist/arranger/producer Clarence McDonald, whose work with the artists Bill Withers, Ray Charles, James Taylor, Hall & Oates and others has resulted in some of the most iconic recordings of our times.

The Washington Post has hailed her "exceptionally beautiful voice... reminiscent of the pop balladeers of the late '50's and early '60's, but with a fine-drawn intensity and shimmering vibrato that are all her own"; while Penthouse Magazine has urged: "If you get a chance to see Joanne Tatham perform live, get moving! She's something you won't want to miss."
