Jo Meares, from surf city Sydney, creates in his new album haunting atmospheres telling stories of outsiders, loss, confusion, love and failure.
Jo's first solo album 'A Handful of Smoke' was awarded Australian Album of the year on the highly respected radio show Outpost on 2SER.
It was recorded over 2 years in France, Sydney and Melbourne involving members of Charles Jenkins and the Zhivagos, French pianist Lisa Barel and what were to become his band the Honeyriders.
Jo's second solo album 'One More Time' was made with the Honeyriders and involves a sixteen piece string section, beautiful backing vocals and lush guitar sounds.
Jo plays most years in France, Spain and Finland and is gradually building his following there.
His June 2014 release of the album 'King of the Crystal Mountain' in Australia was followed by an extensive tour of Europe involving France, Spain, and Finland.
