The D.I.Y. ethic runs deep for Jo Bartlett. As a teenager she started her own club, The Buzz Club so her band, Bluetrain, could support her favourite artists.
When she and her partner Danny Hagan recorded ‘Lank Haired Girl To Bearded Boy’ as It’s Jo and Danny they set up their own Double Snazzy label to release it.
When It’s Jo and Danny wanted to play a festival, they started their own, The Green Man.
After the split of The Yellow Moon Band, Jo and Danny’s last musical project together, Jo released a couple of solo albums and formed a band around her to play live.
The band has now become much more than a solo project.
Kodiak Island played their debut gig in Brighton at a friend’s pub in the Spring of 2015.
They converted guitarist Richard Handyside’s garage into a studio and started work on ‘The Golden Section’ taking a year to complete.
