(8:14; Jo Beth Young)
I have been a huge fan of Jo’s last couple of albums as Talitha Rise and Rise, and now she is moving out under her own name. This two-track digital single features a radio edit of “Allumez” along with “Invisible Fishing”. In some ways both these songs are more direct than the albums, but that does not detract from the beauty in any way. She is a singer who has an incredible presence and strength, yet there is a frailty about the music as if it is a gossamer web which is struggling to stay together with the dewdrops weighing it down and the gentle breeze moving it. But, there is steel in the design and a power in the vocals, and it is not just beauty but something deep and meaningful. If this is an example of the direction she sees herself moving in then I for one will be following with bated breath to see what happens next.
