Laurence Made Me Cry is a music and vision project by Jo Whitby
Laurence Made Me Cry isnít a band, itís a project that incorporates music, art, animation, poetry and storytelling. At least it will do in time. For now the visual concepts have been initiated and the stories are forming waiting to be told. Thereís an odd familiarity about the music of Laurence Made Me Cry. The songs bring with them a sense of timelessness and warmth like meeting up with an old friend.
The artist behind the project is multi-instrumentalist Jo Whitby, a West Country girl at heart but now making roots in the Welsh capital Cardiff. Having spent many years immersing herself in the Bristol live music scene, it wasnít until her move to Wales that Jo found the confidence to finally set her own music free.
