Album Notes
Jo’s Debut Album \"Magical Garden” is a collection of 13 of her finest songs.

Accompanied by her acoustic guitar, Jo’s songs are a folk/country mix with a distinct Australian flavor and reflect her life experiences.

Songs such as “Bundanoon” and “Kings Cross” replicate her diverse and great story telling ability, whilst “Magical Garden”, “Refugee” and “Pioneer Lady” submit passions close to her heart.

Jo grew up around music with a violin teaching mother. She studied piano, but switched to guitar when her father conceded she “couldn’t drag that piano on a trip around Australia”.

She first performed as a singer/songwriter/guitarist at 16.

Challenging herself to a culture shock, she moved from her parents’ quiet South Coast rural retreat to the busy streets of Kings Cross, where she busked to support herself as a journalism student.

It wasn’t long before she had her first gig in a dimly lit little Jazz bar called Round Midnight in The Cross. There, she showcased her raw, unique talent and song writing ability, moving a sceptical city audience, somewhat unaccustomed to the profound, honest sound of a young acoustic songstress from the bush.

A bucket of hard earned busker’s cash later, she bought a plane ticket to America where she worked at a summer camp in California teaching music to children and running songwriting workshops.

She returned to Australia settling in the Southern Highlands 10 years ago and has played along side the likes of Steve Prestwich (Cold Chisel), Shane Pacey (Bondi Cigars) and will soon support Australia’s own Jack Johnson; Paul Greene.

Her album is enjoying great airplay with “Red Shiny Shoes”, “Refugee”, “Brougham Street, Kings Cross” and “Bundanoon” proving radio favourites.

You’ll hear some earthy folk tunes and some modern country fused with sweet harmonies plus a beautiful yet simplistic mix of instruments complimenting each song on the album.


to write a review


Magical Garden is a journey through some of Jo\'s experiences and contains thirteen well-crafted songs. The stand-out feature for me is Jo\'s beautiful, haunting voice, perfectly suited for the soft, roots music presented on this collection. Even when she raises the tempo, such as on Bundanoon, she retains the pure quality to her voice and her lyrics and melodies remain with you long after the album is over. My particular favourites are Pioneer Lady and When Will We Learn, but every track on the album is strong in its own right. Comparisons with the Indigo Girls are appropriate, particularly from a vocal perspective. A highly enjoyable gem in my CD collection.
