About Ession

Steve Milne and Joanna Finnis.  Songwriting partners since 2003. 

In 2003 Joanna and Steve first met after Joanna auditioned for Steve’s rock band Grounds For Dismissal. It was quickly discovered that they both shared a passion for songwriting and inevitably started writing for the band. They wrote two rock albums and Joanna released a solo album with Steve doing the full production.

In 2015 Joanna’s love for synth pop drove her to create a new band, Ession.

2020 was the year that Joanna saw an opportunity to do experimental writing and released ten solo songs working with other producers and singers.

2021 … Joanna and Steve continue to write, experimenting with new ideas and styles choosing to create music that is 100% them.
