"Joelle Strother was born in the US and raised in Japan. Her Angelic yet powerful voice reflects a beautiful mixture of those two cultures."

Her name came from Billy Joel, whose music her father enjoyed. Joelle began piano lessons at the age of five, and singing lessons at age 17. She was influenced by Lisa Loeb, Sarah McLachlan, James Tayler, Michael Jackson, and Boys II Men.

Finishing high school, she began music study at Yamaha Music Institute; she later received the school’s first scholarship. While at Yamaha she started her music career of writing and recording songs.

Let us discuss and share her music and works. I've found a few youtube videos, and samples from her solo albums. I want to get my hands on a few of those, since she seems to mostly be a jazz and gospel, and has done a lot of jazz standards.

Anyways, enjoy desu.

@Kowz: i did effird to make a profile for her on cpm but u didnt link to it :(
Totes forgot about it hue. I just copy and pasted parts of her bio from her website.

nd I hope YK doesn't try to change her way of singing like YK did to wakana :')
Mmm mmh sugar, don't blame Kajiura for Wakana's bad technique. Neither of them have specified what Kajiura instructed her to do. But considering Kajiura's love for classicaly trained female singers, and Wakana's singing is the opposite of what a classically trained soprano should sing like, I highly doubt Kajiura is responsible for the current state of Wakana's voice.

Thanks for the links! Can't wait to listen to these.

I first heard her in Sound Horizon, singing a live version of The Beast of the Endness.

Hmm, i read about how wakana's vocal changed during after eden Era. Not that I don't like her current singing style. I still love her voice and will always love it.

It did, but we don't know exactly what happened. I'll leave it at that. We can discuss that if there's ever a Wakana thread, or if someone revives the vocalist discussion thread.

And thanks for the BD videos. I'll add them to the first post~
