Jo James, vocals

Having played keys and adding some lead vocals with a local band, Rewind, for eight years, I put Jo James Band together in 2005 and it really has gone from strength to strength. Our current line up consists of some of the finest musicians in the North East. We always put our heart and soul into every performance. Personally I can't imagine ever standing in front of an audience and not feeling that real buzz when everyone, out front and around me, is having such a great time. 

I'm trained as a classical pianist to Grade 7 and back in 2003, I won 2 awards in the 'North American Country Music Association' competition, held in The Mandrell Theatre, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Such a fab experience. I've also thoroughly enjoying writing and recording some original material over the years which is very different to the material I perform with the band but equally as much fun. Many of these original tracks have been featured on local radio too. 

Major influences: Melissa Etheridge, Beth Hart and Kristina Train
