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.
With every song being a perfect gem the only complaint is that the album isnt long enough Mark Anthony Brennan, RidetheTempo.
“Whether or not you believe in a divine architect, theres a sublime spiritual presence in JoJo Worthington’s album , which will move the hardest of hearts.” – Trevor Elkin, GoldFlakePaint.
“…Its clear that JoJo Worthington is the most talented student in the new class.” – Half-Life Music.
“‘Two Lines’ is a work of catharsis. Its at once sweeping and grand and extremely intimate.” MT, Gray Owl Point.
Worthingtons 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.
Worthingtons 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 Scene Magazine.
