Joni Fuller performing live on BBC Radio
June 23rd 2011 – Do you remember Joni Fuller, who sang “How Does it Feel” in Hasselt? She was the United Kingdom’s last entrant, and since JESC, has been busy continuing songwriting and singing. Now 19 years old, she describes herself as a “songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and rock violinist”.
She has performed at the Montrose Music Festival, the Bollington Festival, Arundel Festival and several more. In October 2008, Joni’s song ‘America’ was chosen by a panel of judges that included Chris Martin (Coldplay) as a winner in the ‘Make it Break it Songwriting Contest’. Joni’s performance at the awards ceremony caught the attention of LIPA student Harry Andrew Brown which led to Joni recording a 6-track EP (‘Run for Cover’) with Harry. The EP was released at the Montrose Music Festival in May 2009. She won the Make it Break it Songwriting Contest in August 2009 again with her song’Change Girl’. In 2010 Joni was awarded ‘Best Female Artist’ at the Exposure Music Awards and later featured as ‘one to watch’ by PRS for Music in their on-line magazine ‘M’.
This Friday (24th June) you can hear her interviewed live on BBC Radio Lancashire at 3pm. She will also perform on the show. You can listen live by clicking here.
