A few months back, whilst performing at Neesy Smiths fantastic Groovin on The Edge showcase evening, i had the great privilege of witnessing one of Melbourne's truly inspirational and most experienced artists. Im talkin' about the one and only Jojo Smith.
Jojo's music is a beautiful blend of Soul-Funk and Blues played in such a way that transcends all of these descriptions so that audiences experience a direct connection to this amazing woman and her unique songs and stories.
I was mostly inspired by the passion she still holds for music. This flame in her heart after performing for almost 50 years on the scene. It made me realise that i have so much to learn and to understand about my road as a musician. So many great things to yet experience and so many inner barriers to defeat and let go of.
Needless to say, we hit it off instantly and i set about trying to secure an opportunity to share the stage with this wonderful artist.
And so I present to you....
