Jo is an exceptional Cellist, whose music is drawn from classical, rock and metal influences, thereby creating music which connects with and unites a very diverse audience.
With her music often being described as “courageous” and “captivating”, her ability to set the mood for an event is unparalleled. With years’ of experience in the live and recorded music scene she has performed in a wide range of venues from the Royal Albert Hall, St James’ Piccadilly and the Blackheath Concert Halls and has recorded numerous live sessions for the BBC and independent radio and TV channels.
Suitable for both background entertainment and as an after dinner performance, Jo can add the additional touch of sophistication you require for your event.
Drawing upon classical, rock and metal influences, Jo connects with and unites a very diverse audience. She has been heavily influenced by the music of Bach, Debussy, Tavener and Bartok, as well as contemporary artists such as Adrian Vanderberg, Trent Reznor and Perry Farrell all of which have helped craft Jo’s unique sound.
Incorporating looping technology into her music, Jo’s music is experimental and tests the boundaries of her music.
