Jo Bartlett - Highway Found EP
Label: Strike Back Records
Format: CDS


Flawed but sometimes excellent debut EP from London-based folk pop artist, Jo Bartlett

One of England's finest voices returns with a modest EP, which is available on download only. The title track is somewhat flat and twee but 'Measure of the Storm' brings about a startling change due to some twang and its challenging melody. Jo Bartlett's folk pop and lovely voice need a sharper edge, but like so much pop music today has narratives rather than melodies. 'Rising to the Bait' begins rather mediocrely yet becomes almost exciting towards the end. 'Suitable Drama' delivers as promised, with whirling strings and waltzing rushes. Half unremarkable, half great.

Track Listing:-
1 Highway Found
2 Measure of The Storm
3 Rising to The Bait
4 Suitable Drama
