With her debut EP being released back in 2011, Jo Whitby soon decided that she wanted to record an album and thus ‘The Diary of Me’ was born. After raising the money to record the album by using the ever so popular method of crowd funding, Jo recorded ‘The Diary of Me’ in her bedroom in Cardiff as well as her parents’ house on the other side of Severn, over in Bristol. Whitby writes plays and sings on almost every track on the album bar a few in which she drafted in a handful of talented artists to collaborate with including Salwa Azar (vocals and lyrics: ‘Paper Chains’), Ash Cooke (guitar, synths and voice: ‘Between Destinations’) and Paul Foster a.k.a Dementio13 .
