 Personal message from JoJo – via Tumblr:

My name is Joanna Noëlle Levesque and I’ve loved music more and longer than I’ve ever consistently loved anything in life. Music wakes me up and puts me to bed every single day, without fail. I obsess over it. I want to know everything about it! I want to snuggle with it at night. I want to be as close to it as friggin’ possible. When I was 17, I wanted to make it official. I snuck away from the hotel room my mom and I were staying at and got a tattoo. On my ring finger on the left hand; a treble clef. BAM. To remind me not to let anything, or anyone take precendent over the perfect mate I had in music. I feel often like I’m better explaining myself through song. Better than trying to talk about it. The older I got and the more music I inhaled and was exposed to, songwriting and interpreting other people’s songs became my most gratifying form of release. I felt the passion of my favorite artists coming through their records and I always wanted to emote like that. To be so powerful and connected so as to radiate such energy and truth. 

I thought about naming this collection of songs “Live Free or Die” after the New Hampshire state motto (which inspired the tattoo on the back of my neck), but upon further thought, it sounded dramatic and militant and scary. And that it SO not what this is all about! Its really about friends coming together and bonding over a mutual love for music then seeing what grows out of it. Not about industry politics, agendas, empty-promises, ego, swag, pretension, or a budget of any kind.

THANK YOU for listening. You don’t know what it means to me to have a platform to express myself and interact with you. Doing what I love is an honor and a privilege. One that I take to heart. Oh to be making music in the modern time…The internet has changed my life, man! Who’da thunk it. I’m thankful and more excited than ever for the future. My story is unique, confusing, and tumultuous at times. But I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 

AGÁPĒ

    Any person can really tell this girl has grown into a women, not that she was ever a bad thing, thats not what im saying, but despite all shes been through (and im assuming its a lot by the extreme amounts of emotion i feel from her music and what she wrote) she is still 100% jo jo, she has always been trying to work and do her best for the MUSIC, thats the struggle i feel shes been going through, the fight bbetween doing whats right for the music, and what people are forcing her to do, the politics, industry, etc like she mentioned, it was definiatly hard for her, and i have lots of respect and love for this women, cant wait to see you at the top.

    Got led to this download link after hearing her sing “Demonstrate” live on youtube. Her head voice is dangerously beautiful in that song. Hope the mixtape is as awesome 🙂
