JoJo Worthington's vocalizations, ingenuity with looping techniques, and completely refreshing take on the ukulele are all pushing this Canadian experimental-folk musician to create some of the most forward-thinking folk music of her generation. A soft, solitary tour-de-force, she creates haunting choral loops, orchestral ukulele riffs, and striking spacey vocals, engaging the onlookers. With a nod to influences of the present- St. Vincent, Björk, Alt-J, S. Carey, Kate Bush and others, JoJo finds a beautiful, swelling sound completely her own; a rare find in the sea of ukulele-based music.
Worthington's latest work, "\\ (Two Lines)" released in April 2016, is enchanting, transporting, and full of wonder.
"Whether or not you believe in a divine architect, there's a sublime spiritual presence in JoJo Worthington's album '\ \' (Two Lines), which will move the hardest of hearts." GoldFlakePaint.com
