For those who want the heart and soul of a performance, Joanne Hogg is the essence of an artist. She traveled from her home in Ireland to record the album at Blue Coast Studios in California. "Little Brother", the lead off single, is a heart wrenching story of helping someone around you during their time of need - something we can all relate to during times of loneliness. Songs like this will bring tears. Other songs will bring feelings of hope, passion and longing for a place in the past or a thoughts of a brighter future.
"The chill of the space between, the breath of a human, the call of the wild, the angst of a life well lived. That is Jo." -- Cookie Marenco, producer/founder Blue Coast Records.
No stranger to the stage, Jo is known through the world for her work with a popular progressive rock band called, Iona. She also works with organizations bringing food, peace and kindness to people in need.
Jo performed live in the studio using Blue Coast Records proprietary technique called Extended Sound Environment (E.S.E.). These songs were originally recorded to DSD, a one bit recording format that offers the highest resolutions possible. Cookie Marenco was the engineer and producer on this album. Patrick O'Connor was the digital DSD operator.
