JoPo recently released her new album Another Trip Around the Sun in her home town to a sold out crowd at The Sudbury Theatre Centre. She recorded her Album out in Nashville, TN at the Legendary House of Blues Studios & Ocean Way Studios on Music Row with her producer Crystal Shawanda (CCMA & Juno Award Winning Musician).
