Jo has been performing since the tender age of 2 when she attended Ballet, Tap and Modern dancing classes. She had many solo performances, and regularly played lead parts in local Pantomimes. Jo was heavily influenced and coached by her Grandad, who himself appeared on 'Opportunity Knocks', and was a resident organist in his local community.

When Jo was just 12 years old, she performed a twenty munute set at a local snooker club, which became the stepping stone to Jo winning many junior talent competitions both singing, telling jokes and doing impressions.

Jo went on to front many live bands, trio's and duo's, performing everything from Rock classics to Motown in the clubs and pubs across the UK. including tours of the North East and South Wales performing at most of the major holiday camps.

Jo has also made many TV appearances, where she has featured on some of the biggest programmes on TV such as' Coronation Street', 'Shameless', 'Doctors', and many more. She has also appeared in big films such as 'Jane Eyre' and 'Straightheads', to name a few.

In 2008, the welsh superstar 'Duffy' broke onto the music scene, and Jo decided to portray one of her idols, and came up with what was to be a very successful Tribute act to 'Duffy'. As 'Duffy', Jo was asked, (and very honoured also!) to perform her tribute with her own 8 piece instrumental band at the Liverpool Matthew Street Festival in 2009 where she performed to over 250,000 people! Jo toured other tribute venues such as the 'Robin2' in Wolverhampton, and the '66 Club' in Jersey.

In 2011, Jo was approached by the 'Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular' show who asked her to play the role of "Marylyn Monroe" in their performance. Jo went on to portray this Hollywood Icon for over a year, performing at venues and theatres throughout the UK, including a full capacity Edinbourgh Playhouse.

Jo's solo, cabaret show features the classic hits from Disco, Modern Charts, ballads etc, incorporating something to please all age groups. She also has a show totally dedicated to the music of Soul, Motown, and Northern Soul and, with either show, you certainly wont be disappointed with this professional, class act.
