About this Episode

This week on The Smashing Skull Sessions podcast, I get to spend time chatting to the amazing Jo Quail.

"Heaviness is an emotional concept rather than an expression of volume" - Jo Quail.

Jo has been hugely influential in rock and metal circles with collaborations and guest appearances on many big albums, as well as supporting a vast array of bands on the road, such as MONO, Amenra, Boris, Myrkur, Emma Ruth Rundle and Caspian to name just a few.

Greater than the sum of all that however, Jo is a hugely respected and internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso cellist. Those of you who were lucky enough to have witnessed her perform at festivals like Hellfest, Roadburn, Dunk!fest and Arctangent will understand the impact her music has had within the world of heavy music.

Jo was an absolute pleasure to interview, the conversation flowed and we had a few laughs along the way! Immersive and engaging, we get a little insight into the world of Joanna Quail. Go check it out now on YouTube and all good streaming platforms.
