Jo has always had an appreciation for music. Even though she was a member of her high school’s choir, she didn’t find her singing voice until after she graduated. It was about this time she picked up the guitar and taught herself how to play. She has had no official training with her voice or the guitar, but you would not be able to notice this.
With a very diverse taste in music, Jo has had many influences which include The Indigo Girls, Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, The Grateful Dead, James Taylor, Beth Hart, Garth Brookes, Tricia Yearwood and the list goes on! She has a natural talent for writing songs that touch the heart and mind. It has even been said that she has music in her soul! Jo has been performing with Ed Crouse and others under various band names for the past 6+ years. Some of Jo’s musical goals are to create music that leaves an impression, to play beside her musical influences, and to be the best musician and person she can be.
“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”- William Penn 1644-1718
