Stemming from a nomadic family with roots in both Kenya and Jamaica, Jo was brought up in a house two miles from the nearest neighbour in the wilds of northern Scotland. 

Her family moved constantly in her youth, which saw her spending periods in Turkey, UAE, Kuwait, Sri Lanka and Cambodia. 

Gown quietly received huge acclaim from the UK national press and saw Jo perform on the main stage at TEDGlobal, to over 3 million people live on the BBC World Service and attract an audience of 65,000 Facebook fans from as far afield as Singapore and Moscow. 

Now based in Birmingham, England, Jo's debut album

With an incomparable ability to move people live, Jo’s music manages to uniquely embody both a sense of deep appreciation for the everyday world around us along, with the use of cutting edge technology.
