with Scott Power (Shhh! Promotions)
feat a session from Jo Schornikow (The Shivers/Fence Records)
Described by the Scotsman as ‘Effervescent’, Schornikow’s music is eclectic, a sum of parts and experiences. There are bits of soul, folk, rock, pop. It’s not cohesive necessarily – that’s not the point – but there’s a timeless quality to it, like the music she loves most.
Rewind to 2008, Schornikow moved to NYC to join The Shivers (Fence Records). The band continue to build their cult following, helped in 2011 by steady US & UK touring, an appearance on BBC Radio 1 and an MTV ‘O’ award nomination.
But now Schornikow breaks through from the background to the foreground, evolving from her role as sideman with The Shivers. She has worked quietly on her own songs and finished something, a record, that’s unlike anything she’s made before.
