Johanna Alba is a singer/songwriter with roots in Germany and Spain. Her life has always been full of music. She learned violin, guitar and piano, trained her voice and began to write her own songs as a teenager. In 2013 she won Germany's most prestigious national music contest as a singer and a first prize for the interpretation of her own songs later that year. The publicity surrounding her awards led to a scholarship, nationwide gigs and a tour in Greece.
In 2014 she made her dream come true and moved to Manchester to study songwriting at the British Institute of Modern Music. In just one year she has made herself known within the music scene in Manchester, played in the important venues like “Gorilla” and ”the Ruby Lounge”, bigger festivals such as Leeds and Reading and supported big artists like "Julia Neigel" and "Anastacia". She finished recording her debut EP “Silent Confirmation” which was released in Spring 2016 and toured through the North UK in 2017.
Whether it is with band or her soulful acoustic set: With her stage presence and her natural voice she captures the audience with her songwriter pop sounds and takes it on a poetical journey through the souls of contemporary young women between self-consciousness and doubt, love and loss, melancholy and celebrating life.
