Jo Quail


“Music of sublime, awe-inspiring beauty”

GAFFA live review, Copenhagen

Jo Quail is an internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso cellist from London, UK. Equally at home on stage solo, with bands, or in collaboration with choir and orchestra, she combines an eloquent mastery of her instrument with innovative looping techniques, to realise her complex, evocative music for audiences worldwide.

Inspired by the visual arts as much as by fellow composers, Jo cites Barbara Hepworth and Georgia O’Keefe as key influences, alongside the diverse music of Debussy, Pärt, Tool, and Trent Reznor. As a result, she freely crosses the boundaries between genres, awakening listener emotions, and taking audiences into uncharted territory with each concert. Her exuberant, celebratory performance style has won her a fanbase in the contemporary classical world as well as among enthusiasts of post-rock, metal and electronica.

Literally handmade! I'm releasing Exsolve on vinyl in the early autumn, and there's a host of goodies to accompany the records including this, the appropriately titled 'Maquette'. It's a piece, in sheet music form, that the rest of the album was written from, and I wanted to give it its rightful place in the work, as it never made it in full on any of the pieces. I also wanted to create the sheet entirely by hand, so here we go... Preorders will be up soon! #composing #handwritten #sheetmusic #cello #kitchen #studio

I'm thrilled to announce I'll be back on the road with @monoofjapan in December on the final leg of their 20th Anniversary tour, see you there! Xxx #cello #soloist #postmetal #postrock #tour #europeantour #Repost @nmc.live (@get_repost) ・・・ MONO return to Europe in December for the final leg of their 20th anniversary celebrations! Taking in the countries not visited on the previous runs, the tour will see MONO performing classic material alongside songs from their latest epic 'Nowhere Now Here' - the 10th album from these titans of expansive and ethereal rock music. Firmly placed as both progenitor and progressor within their field, a MONO live performance is like no other - visceral, engrossing and showing no signs of decay after two decades on the road. The December tour will be preceded by a summer tour of festivals and shows - from Israel to Ireland - taking the band to places both new and old. Will there be more to come from these anniversary celebrations? Watch this space.

Off to Copenhagen for Colossal Festival now!
