Album Notes
I am a New York City-based actor, musician and songwriter. JO BIRD is my debut bluegrass and folk album, and I am thrilled for you to hear it!

This album is a tribute to all the things I love about bluegrass and folk music -- community, jam sessions, love songs, murder ballads, the old cowboy waltzes and even Celtic music! With this album, I wanted to take my love affair with folk music and twist it into more complex arrangements with vivid storytelling and inventive musical motifs.

My songs are inspired by different people and experiences. Some of the songs reflect my feelings about my divorce in my early 20s. Prison Song is about a recently parolled woman I met while playing music in a halfway house in New York City. And, I wrote Midnight Reel as a responding sister song to Midnight on the Water, a traditional fiddle waltz!

Sweeter Than Wine, featuring The Snowy Mountain Sisters, was written by my older sister Brittany Brook, who plays guitar and sings harmony vocals on the album.

Thank YOU for listening to my music and reading my thoughts about it! I truly hope it proves to be both inspiring and entertaining for you!
