About the artist...

A soft tour-de-force, her vocalizations, ingenuity with looping techniques, and completely refreshing take on the often blasé instrument, the ukulele, is pushing this Experimental-Folk musician to create some of the most forward-thinking music of her generation. JoJo Worthington is a Canadian artist hailing from Waterloo ON, creating soundscapes with haunting choral loops, orchestral ukulele riffs, and striking spacey vocals. JoJo draws the onlookers in, slowly and with complete control.

Ukulele dances playfully alongside a grave, foreboding cello and the bluster of stormy brass as if there is nothing to fear in the darkness of their shadow. The ambiguous beauty of Worthington's rural Canadian homeland, with its contrasting harsh peaks and luscious greenery, is embodied here in each track. "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." - Trevor Elkin, GoldFlakePaint. "...It’s clear that JoJo Worthington is the most talented student in the new class." - Half-Life Music. Worthington’s previous work, “7” released in January 2015, is a full musical to say the least. This eleven-track album includes a whirlwind of sounds coming at you in all different directions, each song different from the next, creating a beautiful potpourri of brightly coloured, strange and varied sounds and influences. “Worthington’s voice is indelible, now familiar to the listener and reassuring to his/her ears, it guides the head through all encompassing instrumental swells and strong group vocals to a soft conclusion.”- The Sce
