WildKat PR welcomes revolutionary cellist and composer Jo Quail to its client roster ahead of her concert in association with Chaos Theory in February 2015.
Jo draws upon classical, rock and metal influences, creating music that connects with and unites a very diverse audience of classical and rock and metal fans. She also incorporates looping technology into her music, providing her with a further means of experimenting and testing the boundaries of her music and instrument.
Jo began her musical training at a very young age and completed her BA in performance at the University of Leeds. Jo has since worked with various musicians and groups and studies with renowned cellist and composer Gwyn Pritchard. She began embarking upon her solo career in 2010, and has since released albums From The Sea (2011) and Caldera (2014) with great success. As well as performing in the UK, Jo has performed in Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Japan.
The concert will take place on 7 February at St John on Bethnal Green, and will feature music from Jo’s hugely popular albums Caldera and From The Sea. This will also feature the premiere of Jo’s new work ‘This Path With Grace’.
Jo has specially arranged several well-known works for the concert, including selected pieces by Schein and Bartok, for four cellos. The cello quartet will also be joined by violinist Daniel Merrill (Dead Rat Orchestra), percussionist Al Richardson and poet Mohan Rana. Tickets are available here.
