Saltwater and Stone

The songs I have chosen are an honest interpretation of the stories I love to sing about. I wanted to create a song album that would be enjoyed for its musical accompaniment too because I come from the ‘session scene’ & love to be a part of traditional music.

I cannot imagine a world without Folk music. It fills my soul. All the musicians on the album have added their musicality and helped create what I hoped would evolve. For that I am truly grateful.

"Jo Philby has chosen a broad selection of her favourite songs from the folk tradition and really made them her own with clear, well measured vocals and a sensitive, uncluttered approach to instrumental accompaniment. This is a recording Jo can certainly be proud of"

Emily Smith, Singer Songwriter
