Lotta St Joan is the modern folk project of Carlotta Waldenberger, who has been composing, producing and performing her songs since 2019. Her music is reminiscent of classic folk greats such as Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez, while also allowing for contemporary influences such as those of Laura Marling, Daughter and Adrianne Lenker.
In January 2021, Lotta released her self-produced debut album "HANDS", firmly establishing herself in the Berlin folk scene. The album received positive reviews from Deutschlandfunk Kultur, RadioEins, Radio Fritz, Folk Radio, Music Reviews and many more.
During 2021 Lotta St Joan wrote her sophomore album, which will be produced in the spring of 2022 at The Famous Gold Watch Studio by Cameron James Laing.
Lotta St Joan has been part of the Berlin-based label collective The Famous Gold Watch Records since October 2020.
Deutschlandfunk Kultur: "Imagine Joni Mitchell or Jody Collins had a musical granddaughter. That would be Lotta St Joan. Very quiet, melancholic, romantic folk songs. You feel transported back to the campfires in the folk movement of the 60s - and then this insanely beautiful voice." (Oliver Schwesig)
RadioEins: "Lotta St Joan impresses with her solo debut HANDS in many ways, including her unflinching calm. I am thrilled by her calmness, by her intensity, by her avoidance of song clichés. Her reflections on closeness, on doubts, and also on desires take on an immensely credible, relevant dimension." (Christine Heise)
RoadTracks: "Hands," the debut solo album from Lotta St Joan, is a perfectly orchestrated finger exercise in classic folk aesthetics, songwriting economy, performing empathy and staging reduction to essentials."
RadioEins: "Guitar and vocals, that's all Lotta St Joan needs and is very close to the great Joan Baez. A very beautiful, a very fragile, a very quiet album - we highly recommend [...] HANDS." (Marion Brasch)
