Jo joined Russells in 2006 as a trainee and qualified into the firm’s Commercial Department two years later. In 2013, Jo gained partnership. Whilst Jo advises on a variety of music-related matters, his primary expertise lies in working with emerging talent (with the majority of his clients having concluded new artist deals recently with either the major or established independent record companies/publishers). With a range of contacts in different areas of the music industry, Jo is also equipped to offer practical and strategic advice to unsigned artists, songwriters and producers/mixers just starting out in the business. He is immensely proud to have been through this process from “day one” with clients who have gone on to win coveted Mercury, Brit, Grammy and Ivor Novello Awards in recognition of their talent.
