Giovanna - stream new single + Shaky Ground EP set for release early 2012


Giovanna single Out In Bold set for release on Mi7 Records

Physics stipulates that Dark Stars only implode. Well, Giovanna is the exception to that rule.

Having already been enlisted by Mumford & Sons, Noah And The Whale and King Charles, Giovanna is in high demand. But she's not taking to Communion and becoming part of that alt-folk scene. This is an altogether more intense experience.

There's no songs about the harvest backed with whimsical bodhrán and bouzoukis. These are tales from a life that's all too real, broken yet uplifting, delivered by a home - grown talent that stands head and shoulders above her contemporaries.

Giovanna is 21. From the age of five she's been playing classical on the piano, and has developed into a songwriter, performer, vocalist, and producer.

Big brother Winston Marshall is multi instrumentalist and vocalist in Mumford & Sons, so she's seen at close hand how things can blow up. Giovanna is far into the album making process having found her artistic home at Mi7 Records - their non-conformist views sit well with her headspace and sound.

The label also found and developed label mate and collaborator King Charles (Mi7/Island Records), of which Giovanna appears as guest vocalist.

Her Mother is her 'rock' - an antique dealer and has thankfully recovered from cancer. Giovanna is also bilingual in French and has studied Italian for 5 years.

Giovanna's ancestry descends from long line of Italian, Hungarian, English, Scottish, Irish and French roots, all potent ingredients for this cerebral songwriter. It's early days in her career, but you get the impression she's already writing some of her best work.

Stream Giovanna - Out In Bold:

And what of Giovanna as a person, well, her music would appear to be a reflection of her character. As hooky as she is understated, fragile yet intensely driven, innocent yet troubled.

An impenetrably bright and dazzling star indeed.

Giovanna's EP, titled 'Shaky Ground' is scheduled for release early 2012.
