Joëtta Zoetelief is an Amsterdam-based singer and songwriter who loves to serenade friends on boats in the city's canals.
In 2013, Joëtta followed her heart and moved to Malaga, Spain. There, she was able to work on her music and perform with local musicians in charming venues with sawdust on the floor.
Inspired by artists like Lucy Rose and Lisa Hannigan, Joëtta sings and plays acoustic guitar.
Having returned to Amsterdam in the autumn of 2016, Joëtta began to make a name for herself on the Dutch folk-indie scene. In March 2017, she joined fellow singer-songwriters Tiana and Faani in the dark folk band: Wiens Lief. The trio released a single titled ‘Better than me’ in July of the same year.
In the autumn of 2019, Joëtta and Thomas Daniel Staples formed the folk duo Julia and the Wildhearts. The duo play folk with powerful melodies, dreamy harmonies and delicate acoustic guitar that will put your mind at ease.
When she's not strumming and humming with the women of Wiens Lief or Julia and the Wildhearts, Joëtta also writes and performs music as a solo artist. She's currently recording her first EP, to be released in spring 2020.
