Biography

Jo Mango - 2007


“Jo Mango is uniquely gifted – as a musician and as a performer. She writes the most beautiful songs and her sense of fun in life has made this last year that I have been on the road with her a luminous one. Kind, original, musical and clever – I know Jo will go far.” Vashti Bunyan

Scottish singer songwriter Jo Mango has recently returned home to Glasgow from an exhausting year of astonishing accomplishment, traversing the entire globe. She has played for David Byrne (Talking Heads) in front of a sell-out crowd at the Carnegie Hall; found hundreds of new fans in Japan and then moved on to Texas where she played for the thousands of Music Industry personnel at South By South West.

She collaborated on performances with cult new-folk figures Vashti Bunyan, Devendra Banhart, as well as more established folkies Donovan, Eddi Reader and many more. Along the way she even found herself showing REM’s Michael Stipe how to play the Kalimba!

It’s all a long way from the tiny record label she, her twin brother and manager started from her front room 3 years ago. For, in April 2004 she founded Lo-Five Records and released her first record, The Antidote EP (**** The List), which received airplay across the BBC Radio network. Her absolutely beautiful debut album Paperclips and Sand followed on in March 2006 and is now on sale internationally, to great reviews.

    Your voice is absolutely beautiful. I stumbled upon you on "Ben Folds radio", your cover of Evaporated is stunning. I hope you release an album.
