Stefan Redtenbacher (Redtenbacher's Funkestra) and James Welch (Masterlink Productions) talk to music artist Joanna Cooke.
Jo talks passionately about the importance of "saying it how it is" - something very prevelent in her upcoming release 'Kaleidoscope'.
Jo talks frankly about her journey in the music industry from creating a dance vocal pack, doing pub gigs, recording with renowned producer Mark Edwards and now venturing out with her own material.
She details her struggles with mental health and also gives Stef and James some well needed therapy!
Motown legend Martha Reeves summed it up perfectly, describing Joanna Cooke as “the baby girl singing the blues". Joanna, much like her South West blonde counterparts, Joss Stone and Jo Harman, demonstrates that true soul and emotional connection is not simply constrained by colour or creed. Moreover, her self-penned songs leave a lasting impression on audiences, by dint of their raw honesty and song craft.
