Bristol-based Elles is enjoying similar success, her latest release, Road I Call Home, has already enjoyed some 500,000 Spotify streams since release and the album currently sits proudly in both the UK Official Country and Americana Charts, already having been number one in the hot new releases Amazon blues chart.

“This is not the first time both ladies have appeared together.

“Having first met at one of Jo’s West Country shows, Jo subsequently invited Elles to be the support act on her 2017 People We Become Tour, and this Sussex show is a rare chance to see the pair reunited when Elles opens the Shoreham show as Jo’s very special guest.”

“Both Jo and Elles recorded their latest studio albums in Nashville, and both are no stranger to international touring: Elles is about to embark on extensive touring in Germany and Eastern Europe, as well as appearing at Rambling Man Festival, while Jo has her own upcoming Festivals in Poland. Serbia, France and Norway, as well appearing at Sussex’s own Love Supreme Festival as special guest vocalist on Orphy Robinson MBE’s Astral Weeks project.”
