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.

Repost from @turekdrums, with thanks! This is @leahbreachtattoos first ever cello lesson, I dont teach regularly any more which is something I miss, but now and then there is a very special one off. It was a privilege to set Leah off on her journey as a cellist, what amazing natural ability and grace she has. A lovely way to spend a morning! #teacher #student #cello #firstlesson #somuchfun #bow #strings #pirastro #electriccello #bossgt100 #harmony

Terribly unclear picture but what an AMAZING night! Such a pleasure to play to a full house at @earthackney in support of @joepbeving, who transported me to another world with his magic. Such a profound and deeply moving, mesmerising performance. I'll treasure this experience. Thank you Joep, @botwevents for having me.

This is my music room, complete with cat today. Just back from the school run and I'm going to rehearse my set now ahead of tonight's concert supporting @joepbeving for @botwevents at EartH in Hackney. I cannot wait to play tonight! Last night I dreamed of this concert, and I was playing Adder Stone and I realised lots of people were in the choir stalls (there are none at EartH!) then Ravel's Bolero started blasting out from somewhere. I mean I know that's a loop if ever there was one, but come on brain! Give me a break! See you later xx #cello #dreams #soloist #ravel #composer @boss_europe #loop #avantgarde #classical
