Joanna Connor (born August 31, 1962)[1] is an American Chicago-based blues singer, songwriter, and a virtuoso guitarist.

Connor was born in Brooklyn, New York, United States, and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts.[1] After moving to Chicago, Illinois in 1984, she was drawn to the Chicago blues scene, eventually sharing the stage with James Cotton, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, and A.C.
