Joan As Police Woman – AKA Joan Wasser – has just released her latest studio album, The Solution Is Restless.
Featuring guitarist, songwriter and producer Dave Okumu and drummer and afrobeat legend Tony Allen, it’s another chapter in Joan's incredibly colourful career.
She played violin in the Boston University Symphony Orchestra before spending much of the ’90s on the road with indie rockers The Dambuilders. Joan then went on to perform with artists like Antony and The Johnsons and Rufus Wainwright and do session work with Lou Reed and Nick Cave, as well as developing her solo career as Joan As Police Woman in the early 2000s.
We talk about it all in this interview.
