Inspired by both visual art and other composers, JO QUAIL praises sculptor Barbara Hepworth and painter Georgia O’Keeffe as main influences. She then names musicians like DEBUSSY, ARVO PÄRT, TOOL, and TRENT REZNOR. With every concert, she freely crosses genre borders, awakes emotions of the listeners, and takes the audience to new grounds. Her opulent, festive performance style created a fan base consisting of lovers of contemporary classic music and lovers of Post Rock, Metal, and Electronica.
Since her appearance as solo artist in 2010, JO QUAIL released four albums, three EPs, and one live DVD. Her fourth album ‘Exsolve’ (Adder Stone Records) was produced by Chris Fielding and was released in November 2018 together with a double vinyl edition. Even for an artist who understands to harmonize experiments and elegance, ‘Exsolve’ is a progress and a breakthrough for Jo on so many levels. The critical acclaim was unanimously: “A work of complexity, beauty, and tension” (The 405); “For the first time, the long-time influence of classic music has a mutual effect on Metal” (Metal Hammer); “Breathtakingly impressive” (Echoes and Dust).
The recognition of Jo’s work is also present live on stage. She performed several festivals all over Europe, two concerts at the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the invitation of Robert Smith for his Meltdown Festival, and several tours as opener for MONO, AMENRA, BORIS, MYRKUR, BATTLES, CASPIAN, JOEP BEVING, and others.
On stage and in studio, JO QUAIL cooperated with artists like FM Einheit (EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBAUTEN), Eraldo Bernochhi, and Poppy Ackroyd. She is a creative character with wide-range skills. Already as a young person, she started to study music, and later she led master classes and interactive workshops about composing, performance, looping, effects, and sound shaping. She wrote several plays that are intended specifically for a diverse combination of instruments. Those plays she performed together with a series of ensembles nationally and abroad. In April / May 2020, the creative cellist will present her impressive composing and instrument skills on German stages. More information here: www.joquail.bandcamp.com
