JoJo Worthington’s vocalizations, ingenuity with looping techniques, and completely refreshing take on the ukulele are all pushing this Canadian experimental-folk musician to create some of the most forward-thinking folk music of her generation.

A soft, solitary tour-de-force, she creates haunting choral loops, orchestral ukulele riffs, and striking spacey vocals, drawing the onlookers in, slowly and with complete control. With a nod to influences of the present- St. Vincent, Björk, Alt-J, S. Carey, and others- Worthington finds a beautiful, swelling sound completely her own; a rare find in the sea of ukulele-based music.

Worthington’s latest work, “\ (Two Lines)” , named one of the top Canadian albums for 2016 (http://ridethetempo.com/2017/01/15/ride-tempos-top-canadian-albums-2016/), is a surge into a new territory alongside Epoch producer, Connory Ballantyne and engineer, William Crann. It is at once enchanting, transporting, and full of such wonder. Ukulele dances playfully alongside a grave, foreboding cello and the bluster of stormy brass as if there is nothing to fear in the darkness of their shadow. The ambiguous beauty of Worthington’s rural Canadian homeland, with its contrasting harsh peaks and luscious greenery, is embodied there in every note.

“With every song being a perfect gem the only complaint is that the album isn’t long enough” – Mark Anthony Brennan, RidetheTempo.

“Whether or not you believe in a divine architect, there’s a sublime spiritual presence in JoJo Worthington’s album ‘ ’, which will move the hardest of hearts.” – Trevor Elkin, GoldFlakePaint.

“…It’s clear that JoJo Worthington is the most talented student in the new class.” – Half-Life Music.

“‘Two Lines’ is a work of catharsis. It’s at once sweeping and grand and extremely intimate.” MT, Gray Owl

“Worthington’s voice is indelible, now familiar to the listener and reassuring to his/her ears, it guides the head through all encompassing instrumental swells and strong group vocals to a soft conclusion.”- The Scene Magazine.

“A victorious Canadian songstress” – Variety Magazine
