'The Deep Field' begins with the words "I want you to fall in love with me," and continues to unfurl an unashamed lust for life. It's unquestionably her best, most significant album yet - in Joan’s own words, "my most open, joyous record." A rocking, soulful journey, The Deep Field is Joan's most personal, and her most universal album to date.

The title of the album refers to a tiny and far distant part of space - follows the critical and commercial success of her previous albums, Real Life and To Survive and it confirms, if confirmation were needed, that Joan Wasser is a truly original talent; utterly captivating both on record and on stage.

The Independent 5 stars - "The Deep Field marks a quantum leap in the career of Joan Wasser. It has real emotional insight, couched in genuinely soulful arrangements bristling with imagination"

Sunday Times 4 stars - "a brooding funk that is intense rather than euphoric with Wasser's voice floating lightly on top, this strangely soulful mélange proves addictive"

Financial Times 4 stars - "rakishly intimate"

The Guardian 4 stars - "at her Barbican show Wasser's startling performance is rewarded by stunned silence, two encores and a standing ovation, each more deserved than the last"

Dylan Jones/The Independent Magazine - "Joan Wasser's music - and indeed that voice, that beautiful voice - has been described variously as soul, jazz and thrift-store rock, and a mixture of all three.. She is the alt Lady Gaga - less dramatic, with a sweeter disposition. You'd be mad to miss her."

Attitude 4 stars - "Joan Wasser's blissful, torchy, serpentine touch has aligned her with PJ Harvey, Dusty (In Memphis era) Springfield and Al Green, but her third - and easily best - album ups the soul ante"

NME - "a voraciously soulful collection of some considerable beauty, utilising earthy beats and that remarkable voice, this is the sound of a woman alive and comfortable in her own skin"

Uncut - "deliriously good"

The Mirror 4 stars - "her stealthy concoctions of 70s funk and soul, abrasive guitars, poignant voices, warm brass and swelling strings remain fascinating"

Q 4 stars - "terrific. Joan's warm, witty presence shines through"
