JoJo Worthington brings her delicate post-folk sounds to New Brunswick for two shows in July.
Infinite, sublime, enchanting and transporting. That’s how critics have been describing the work of Kitchener, Ontario’s Jojo Worthington. With numerous awards, nominations and tours to her credit, Jojo (Joanna) has gained a loyal international following.
Her latest release, TCYK (The Company You Keep), is a celebration of her diverse strengths. This succinct powerhouse of an album, co-produced with William Crann, is a magnificently textured exploration of Worthington’s experience as a woman navigating tumultuous relationships. Orchestral and electronic sounds blend, creating serene walls of sound that compliment intimate narratives. Within only a handful of songs, Worthington presents a whole body of feeling. Listeners are guided through conflicts between ephemeral lovers, distant friends, the human and divine. However, TCYK is ultimately a celebration our attempts at connection, as Worthington asserts: “we need to stabilize”—a rallying cry for mutual support between sexes.
Worthington will be teaming up with Property// for a pair of New Brunswick shows later this month with performances in Fredericton and Saint John.
