Joanna Nicholson is a clarinettist and writer of music and text. Standout recent projects include her solo album Gyre, and No Trees to Whisper, a multi-composer song cycle for soprano and clarinet, both shortlisted for a Scottish New Music Award 2023.

“Clarinet extraordinaire Joanna Nicholson graces us with her debut, an atmospheric trek through her mind’s eye in which she leads us with tape recordings of her voice serving as narrations for

the music itself, which exists in this liminal space between modern classical and avant-garde jazz. Nothing else exists while this music plays.”
