What they're saying about Jo Henley...
"[Inside Out] is one of the year’s best, a stripped-down rootsy journey through lost loves and struggling people seeking connection and meaning...Campolieto’s songwriting is remarkable for its storytelling detail, each tune a cinematic vignette." Jay Miller, The Patriot Ledger
"The songs on Inside Out are readymade vessels for the listener’s thoughts. So much so one almost fails to notice how much objectively good music is on the album. Trey Anastasio’s longtime rhythm section of Tony Markelis and Russ Lawton provide a gracefully understated foundation for Campolieto and Lee’s clean, sparkly guitars and soulful voices. Songs like “The Fire” stroll along pleasingly and contain hidden lyrical gems like 'I said something about the weather. You said you’re leaving me again.' Songs like 'Gonna Make It Right' feature an effortless melody and sunny mandolin riff. Songs like 'Getting Good at Goodbye' have the potential to make it to the top of the pop and country charts. The album in full provides a pleasant and somber experience worth many repeated visits. Like many of [John] Prine’s albums, this album is sure to help out more than one lost soul. And after all, isn’t that what music is for?" David Paul Kleinman, jambands.com
“Inside Out” is a very worth successor to “Sad Songs And Alcohol.” It shows more variety and more depth in the songwriting, and it shows Jo Henley is a band that has the potential of breaking through to a wider audience, not in a couple of years, but right now. The quality of the music and songwriting is good, the band is passionate about their music and can deliver it accordingly. If “Inside Out” gets a chance, and people are willing to stand behind it (and why wouldn’t they?), it could definitely be the band’s breakout album. In its genre, this is probably my favorite release of 2010 so far." www.InnerEarMedia.net
