"Jojo Thomas (vocals, piano, chord organ) and Danny Norbury (cello) have known each other for over ten years, but only started playing music together in the spring of 2005. Cortina Deluxx's first release for new Manchester label Humble Soul. Subtly recorded in intimate sessions at the label's Manchester studio, the songs mark personal statements for Jojo. Starting with the haunting melancholy of 'Ready About?,' the Jojo side continues with the bleak piano and cello minimalism of 'Cold Weather,' which will leave you holding your breath until the very last note fades into the run out groove. Flipping over to the Danny side, you will discover the infectious, hypnotic groove that is 'Just The Same,' followed by 'Going Home,' where the piano's jolly bounce forms an ironic backdrop to the acerbic wit of the lyrics. Final touches were added by the mixing talents of Andy Kingslow (Mr. Scruff, Elbow, Corinne Bailey Rae) and the beautiful cover photography of the exceptional Emily Dennison."
