Aarhus Sangskriverværksted: Brett Perkins og Daniel Jo
(Singer/Songwriter) DANIEL JO er sanger og sangskriver fra Århus. I de seneste år har sangskrivningen været lagt på hylden til fordel for andre musikprojekter, men nu er han klar til igen at fokusere på solo-projektet. Dette projekt danner rammen om en række melodiøse sange med danske tekster. Daniel er kendt for sit nærvær på scenen og tekster om der bærer præg af det gode liv i Århus. Inspirationen kommer selvsagt fra hverdagen og den magi, der opstår når skæbners veje krydses.
