Growing up in Southern California, the multi-talented musician is one of few female singer-songwriters that can perform in both Mandarin and English. Joanna released her debut album "Start from Here" in 2008 as a double-disc set, one in English and the other in Mandarin. The album reached #1 in Taiwan, and won numerous awards throughout Southeast Asia including 2009 Golden Melody Awards Best New Artist nomination.
The 1st female rapper winner of Golden Melody Awards is considered "the Missy Elliot of Taiwan". Miss Ko started writing songs while attending high school in Brooklyn, which led to further studies at Five Towns College, where Wyclef Jean and Maroon 5 also gained their fame. In 2009, Miss Ko released her first album in New York titled "Industry Makeover", and received attention from top French magazine Tetu for her international potential. After returning to Taiwan, she vowed to use music to find her roots; and with help from the Taiwan underground hip-hop sensation SoftLipa, she quickly gained recognition and led to her first Mandarin album "Knock Out" in 2012.
The 2006 DMC Taiwan Champion is the first female finalist in the DMC history; she was ranked top 13 at the 2006 DMC World Final. With over 10 years of experience, DJ Noodles has performed with numerous renowned legends, such as DJ Q-Bert, DJ Kentaro, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Premier and Naughty by Nature. She has also shared the stage with Steve Aoki, Diplo and many other pioneers of the indie dance music scene. DJ Noodles has been invited to perform in many countries around the world, including England, Switzerland, Japan, China, Australia, Indonesia, United States, South Korea and more.
In 2005, DJ Noodles released her second album "Girls Dem Sugar" under EMI Taiwan, which reached top 10 on the Taiwan album music chart and successfully introduced dancehall music to Taiwan's club scene. In 2012, DJ Noodles became the first Asian DJ invited to be a resident DJ on Radio FG USA, a division of Radio FG, which originated from France, and is now one of Europe's largest radio and lifestyle networks dedicated to the electronic music genre.
