Joannah Pax formed her first band in Poland, with musicians who, like her, wanted to construct social inclusion through their musical ideas. The values of freedom and diversity were carried in her first songs- a manifesto to shape surrounding reality on her own terms. Joannah Pax has developed her style through influences such as Fleetwood Mac's anguished chord progression and reckless harmonies of Queen that resonate loud in her compositions. The influence of other cult artists of the Seventies and Eighties period is prominent in her music and often blended with Eastern European folk music traditions.
Since moving to London, Joannah Pax has been collaborating with many gifted artists to further shape her musical identity. The colour green and its associations have become prominent in her music and performances. Plants and projections of nature from her homeland and places she visited form important part of her stage persona. In 2018, Joannah Pax was joined by London based young talents and started regular shows. The current line up is Joannah Pax (vocals), Michael Nash (drums), Dorian Cloudsley (guitar), Yasin Bayraktar (keyboard).
