Album Notes
Jo Dread Daniels Bio

Jo Dread reigning out of Cincinnati Ohio, Jo was reared in Winston Salem North Carolina with a large back ground in music. He took up piano in the 4th grade, Trumpet in the 6th grade and began playing piano in churches by the 11th grade. His first job was as keyboardist in the Ultimates band. They performed R & B and the Blues with a full horn section four female singers and a male lead. They also opened for the Kool & the Gang on many occasions and eventually befriended them.

He was voted the first black band director of Reynolds High School but was transferred during desegregation to East Forsyth High and graduated their.

Jo graduated from Winston Salem State University with a degree in music education and also had put together a small group. He performed with the Marching/Concert/Jazz Bands, Male Chorus, Madrigal Glee Club and arranged music for many of them. Most of the groups toured so he got a chance to get exposed to other areas of the country.

After school he waived graduate school at Eastman School of Music for teaching band in Whiteville North Carolina. Returning for Winston Salem after a year, he disbanded the Love Street Gang from college and began performing with Electric Fudge. They were funky and had a very nice sound system.

Since then, Jo had done many things (see resume on personal web site).

Some of the projects Jo has encountered include video production, radio personality, television engineer, video technician, truck driver, dishwasher, music columnist and other jobs.

Music of the album written from Break In The Action was worked up in Brooklyn New York in 1998. Some of them were released as early as the late 80's.

He resides now in Winston Salem doing a solo act, sitting in with Crucial Fire, Dub Azzes, Jah Pops Khebo and performing with Johnny White and the Elite Band.
