Watch List: Joanna Borromeo - Train Ride
Calgary-based (Canada) singer and pianist, Joanna Borromeo, has made a name for herself performing and touring with a who's-who of Canadian Soul and R&B acts. Her professional roster includes Divine Brown, Slakah the Beatchild, Dragon Fli Empire, Ebrahim and several others. This week Borromeo releases "Kaleidoscope," the full-length follow-up to her critically acclaimed EP "Through the Dark." Borromeo's previous 2010 effort firmly established her as more than just a freelancer, even receiving accolades from the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and the Great American Song Contest.
As a sneak-preview to this week's release, Joanna posted this footage of "Train Ride" — a superb ballad which highlights her impressive vocal prowess as well as the strength of her live show — to her online fan base. "Kaleidoscope" (listen below) is a consistently remarkable blend of Pop, Soul and Jazz. Each song is masterfully crafted and produced, making "Kaleidoscope" a contender for one of the best independent Soul releases of the year. The record hits March 26 but is available an early release for those that wish to help fund her upcoming tour of the US west coast and Canada.
