It's Jo and Danny is the brainchild of Jo Bartlett and Danny Hagan. In 2000 they released their debut album Lank Haired Girl to Bearded Boy on their own Double Snazzy label. Rave reviews and daytime UK national radio play on BBC Radio 1 led to a worldwide recording contract with RCA. Live UK performances included appearances at the Glastonbury Festival, Reading and Leeds Festival and T in the Park, with international shows at Crossing Borders in Amsterdam with Emmylou Harris, and Les Inrockuptibles festival in Paris with Coldplay.

Albums[edit]

In 2003 they released But We Have The Music in the UK, Spain, Germany and Japan, and received Album of the Week in The Times. The Quickening was recorded with Scottish/Irish/Californian folk outfit Daimh and released in 2005. Once again, it was critically well received and awarded four stars by Peter Paphides in The Times.

They currently record as The Yellow Moon Band.
