Joanne Accom (born Joanne Ruth Charlotte Accom on 13 November 1978), nicknamed Joanne BZ, is an Australian dance, pop singer-songwriter.


Joanne's first single Jackie, was released in late 1998. It reached No. 3 on the ARIA Charts, and became the highest selling single in Australia in 1999, earning her an ARIA award.

For Jackie, Joanne was credited as "B.Z. featuring Joanne" or "Joanne/BZ", referring to the original performers of the song, Blue Zone.

She released the singles Pack Your Bags and Are You Ready in 1999.

Her next release was featuring on the track Breakin' There's No Stoppin' Us by Ilanda for The Wog Boy Movie in 2000.

Her solo album, Do Not Disturb, was released in 2001 after being a work in progress for two and a half years.[1] It features a remix of Jackie, her two singles released in 1999 and three new singles, So Damn Fine, I Don't Know, and Busted. It was produced and recorded in Dance World Studios, South Melbourne.

Joanne has since stopped recording, and performs weekly on a Sunday afternoon at the George Hotel in Melbourne with group Ilanda.


She performed a number of her hits at Melbourne's Rumba along with other artists on Saturday 17 November 2001 at the Docklands Stadium.

She performed her hit So Damn Fine in front of a live audience all over Australia at one of the Big Brother Australia 2002 live eviction shows during the closing credits.
