Jo Krasevich @ Gibert Joseph store
Paris Sept 24, 5:00PM

American Folk singer Jo Krasevich is playing a showcase this afternoon @ Gibert Joseph store in Paris after opening for Ray Lamontagne yesterday night @ Café de la Danse.
I've heard a few of her songs quickly on her Myspace page and I liked what I've heard.
Always better to see artist in vivo.
She's promoting her first album "Mery go round" featuring Doug Pettitbone (Mark Knopfler, Tracy Chapman) on guitar and Daniel Lanois who just produced "Le Noise" for Neil Young.(click for Pics & more from his last show in Paris)
She's been compared to Chrissie Hynde for her voice but I personnaly think she's closer to Suzanne Vega ( we love her @ ROCKERPARIS... well Patrice does; click on link for more).
We were treated to a 5-6 songs set from her new album including one unrealeased song ending with a great acoustic version of Neil Young's " Like a hurricane".
We ( Oliver and I) had a nice chat with her afterwards well... she should be soon ( hope so) @ an Oliver Peel session.
