Welcome

Jo Meares is currently touring Europe. He will be releasing a new album in early 2018 mainly recorded with his Melbourne band Jo Meares and the Silver Bullets.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'KING OF THE CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN' Jo Meares' last album was released in June 2014

Produced by Charles Jenkins it features the guitar work of virtuoso Jeff Lang and the sublime harmonica work of Reuben Alexander
and Kari Pihl's beautiful piano work.

The haunting backing vocals were recorded by an all girl choir in an old church in Helsinki, Finland.


From Chris Famiton's 4 star review at The Music....

Mood and atmosphere are key factors in the creation of immersive and transportive music and Jo Meares' new album is richly imbued with both. Eerie, forlorn harmonica; delicate and heart-wrenching piano; slow, shuffling drums; and exquisite guitar courtesy of Jeff Lang are the backdrop to Meares' tales of love, pain and emotional turbulence, rendered in the talk/sung style of Leonard Cohen yet invested with the gothic country ambience of Howe Gelb (Giant Sand) and Wovenhand. King Of The Crystal Mountain is a richly detailed and beautiful set of recordings from start to finish.
