Oakland, CA-May 1, 2008-JoJo Styles got inspiration from living in the Bay Area during rock music’s most pivotal and productive times, the 60s. JoJo had the opportunity to see Hendrix, Santana, Miles Davis, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea and other luminaries of the day at the festivals and concerts going on regularly at venues and parks. It was the most colorful and influential decade of music and anyone that was lucky enough to experience it all can attest to that fact.
The nylon string guitar paralleled his musical interest while his was developing as an artist it coincided with the discovery of Antonio Carlos Jobim. JoJo eloquently states, "Discovering Jobim was like a warm wind blowing through his soul."
JoJo currently has two instrumental releases, Bossa Nuevo Vol. 1-Light of Love (Cool Groove, Hot Guitar) and Bossa Nuevo Vol. 2-The Offering. The companion CDs focus on the artists’ penchant for Latin-Instrumental-Jazz. The two CDs create a nice atmosphere for leisurely listening pleasure or it has the flexibility for movie soundtracks or background music at parties or restaurants. Bossa Nuevo is the offspring of the World Beat JoJo discovered through Carlos Santana when they were making their way to the top in the early years. The universal feelings and atmospheres it brings forth while listening has no boundaries.
JoJo Styles is currently preparing the release of a new CD titled Back to Monterey (which contains Spanish and English lyrics) that he produced and co-wrote with a singer named Rosanna Rainz. He is also working on his third instrumental album, and then plans to release a few albums of his own rock songs soon that have developed over the years.
