Jo’s very personal interview with Jen Delaney of Stratosphere Fanzine and Delusions of Adequacy was released today! It’s probably the most telling expose/interview yet. The good sister hopes you spend a little time with our little joey, getting to know her a little better.

We thank Jen for all the time and effort she put into this interview.

Be good brothers and sisters

Jo’s got a new Live performance video with Matt Turner on cello at the historic Smart Studio

Posted in Cats&Film, Credits/Musicians, News, projects in progress, The Amber Sessions with tags , on March 29, 2010 by Sister Cleophas

Joey just finished a live performance video with the incredible Matt Turner on Cello. She decided to do a version of Mothlight off her 2007 album The Amber Sessions.

It was an absolute honor to be able to play amongst the ghostly atmosphere that remains at Butch Vig’s Smart Studio, known notable for having the album from Nirvana’s Nevermind as well as Smashing Pumpkins and Depeche Mode having recorded there.

The video should be ready soon for viewing.

Special thanks go out to Mike Zirkel and Wendy Schneider for shooting the footage of our performance.

Jo thinks it resembles an upper east side salon setting, in Ira Levin’s living room.

Matt Turner was exceptional as always. Even with Joey’s back turned to him, the vibes were pulsing through and magically blended two instruments into  sonic  poetry.

This is a sneak peak at the 17 Pygmies compilation tribute film to the ground breaking film maker George Melies featuring various artists doing their own score to several of Melies short films. I contributed Summoning off my album The Amber Sessions for The Conjuror. Here is a limited peep at what lies ahead.

This promises to be a great artistic project indeed!
