Laurence Made Me Cry for Velocity in October.
Laurence Made Me Cry aka Jo Whitby saw her crowd funded debut LP, ‘The Diary Of Me’ receive support from BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio whilst was also nominated for the Welsh Music Prize. Bill Cummings of God is in the TV vine beautiful described it as;
” endlessly imaginative, self exploratory, and full of heart: but don’t let the title fool you it’s not just a straightforward document to her life and work but a relisation of her musicianship and song writing skills. It’s the blending of different contributions onto one long playing canvass.”
She has been described as lo-fi folk/electronica and you can quickly see how she has found her self supporting Rachel Sermanni, Gulp and Meursault. Jo released the live five track EP, entitled ‘Inverness’ EP in July, named after her current home following a move from Bristol via Cardiff.
Laurence Made Me Cry will play Velocity on the 22nd of October.
