After school hours, somewhere in Gloucestershire, Joe Jury and friends start a band called Kamikaze Union. At that point, their only goal is to make as much noise as possible but as Joe learns the tricks of songwriting he quickly focuses on making music his career path. One thing leading to another, he eventually met the one who would become his producer best friend for 10 years, LostBoy.Their brilliant musical relationship is at the origin of Joe’s debut EP ‘The Streets Of Campden’ - due February 10th. A four-track long record that plunges us into the early formative years of his life by counting youthful stories in a nostalgic way with heavy folk and 80’s pop influences. The EP is a collection of catchy songs he wishes will connect with people and bring them together.
Inspired by various types of music and artists such as Neil Young, Van Morrison, and Bob Dylan, Joe Jury came to finding his own way of writing melodies and arrangements. Acoustic guitar arpeggios, synths, and electronic sounds clash together throughout the EP to create an interesting and different, yet easy sound. A sound that perfectly marries and enhances his unique voice and that got him to support Laura Doggett and share the Calling Out Stage with Sundara Karma at the Kendal Calling Festival. Joe is a very active singer & writer, he's always looking for the next song!
