Jo was recently honoured to be asked to write the music for an Italian charity TV campaign highlighting the plight of child soldiers in The Congo. Here it is, currently airing on Sky and various other channels.
Some amazing news we’re still reeling from over here in the UK.
An astounded Jo wouldn’t believe this news for a full 12 hours until we finally found a review confirming it, and even now keeps murmuring the occasional ‘no way’.
To warm up after a cold winter, on 6th March Jo will be appearing with full band opening for Turin Brakes in St Mary’s church, Ashford, Kent. Tickets £20/£15 from http://tinyurl.com/aunqssq
A message from Jo:
The artwork frames for Patrons have finally arrived after a long journey. Aren’t they lovely! They go well with a mulled wine ;).
After Christmas I’ll be starting to record the successor to Gown.
If you’d like to help, have your name on the credits and receive one of these frames, please consider becoming a Patron - or gifting a Patronage to someone else.. and we’ll send you a signed one, all wrapped up for Christmas stockings.
