Jo-Jo O’ & The WOODS is a songwriting partnership forged in primary school. Following the release of their 6 track EP ‘Old Friends & Lost Souls’ in April 2015, the duo toured Ireland, Northern Ireland and Western Canada, and performed over 100 gigs in 18 months. O’Donoghue and Woods have created an undeniable and distinctive sound; dark and moody, forward-driving, rock and roll, built on the solid foundation of traditional folk songwriting and storytelling. Conjured by a force of nature, powerhouse vocalist.

Together, the duo invokes a rock and roll arena sound and spectacle that when translated to an intimate acoustic setting, is inconsequential. Their versatility is mastered. Their vulnerability is jarring. Their authenticity is powerful.
