Big Joanie

Based: London / Birmingham / Manchester
Label: Daydream Library / Kill Rock Stars


Formed in the heart of London’s DIY punk scene, Big Joanie (featuring guitarist Stephanie Phillips, bassist Estella Adeyeri, and drummer Chardine Taylor-Stone) are a Black feminist punk band whose passionate live shows and moreish blend of nineties riot grrrl and synth-heavy post punk, have seen them steadily rise to become one of the most championed bands of the current era. Not only did Thurston Moore and Eva Prinz start their independent label Daydream Library Series solely to release the band’s critically celebrated debut album Sistahs, but the band have also played a coveted string of support slots since then. Their tours include performing with acts like Bikini Kill, Skunk Anansie, Sleater-Kinney, and Idles, and garnered positive press in outlets such as BBC 6 Music, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and Brooklyn Vegan.
