Album Notes
'The Limits Of Milkweed' takes its title from a documentary about the threatened habitat of Monarch butterflies which live solely on the Milkweed plant. As pollution shrinks the plant's environment, the chances of survival become weaker - like all creatures we can only live within our limits. The album cover is an iconic depiction of a Sphinx from Delphi in Greece, once a cultural centre, now a museum. How will we be remembered in Time?

This album contains the single 'Jacobs Ladder' a bluesy, dubby chanson about a life which struggles to remain bouyant. The six minute album version sits on a playlist of powerful songs which enrich the lounge, serenade the car journey and fulfill that sense of nostalgia.

Ella Jo is unafraid to push the door of her imagination wide open and allow the songs to flow into the genre they suit the best. Hence Lounge crosses over to pop and intersperses with dance - (beats are one of many things that are well taken care of by co-producer Steve Spon). Jazzy themes also make an appearance - especially on Heart Break Girls and the folky elements born from a busking ancestory appear in Himalaya and Diamonds Dont Go.

The glue that binds these songs into a heartwarming collection is the strength of the songwriting, telling stories, chanting anthems and soaring on pleasing melodies. The mystical qualities held in Ella Jo's music accompany the soul on its journey to completion...she will lead you to sonic depths and lift your spirit to freedom.
