Jo Henley Band
Co-founded by longtime musical collaborators Andy Campolieto and Ben Lee, Jo Henley is a Boston-based root-rock band that has been winning over fans and critics alike since 2006 with their potent blend of country-rock, indie-folk and cosmic cowboy jams. Campolieto's and Lee's mutual love of all forms of American roots music shines through in Jo Henley. New England publication The Noise says, "...the rhythm and poise with which the members of Jo Henley write and perform is exquisite. Touches of Robbie Roberson and the Band and all who followed in their footsteps echo throughout this collection.  The range is beautiful.  The lyrics and melodies have a very familiar feel throughout, as if we have dear friends in all these songs -- a rare gift indeed." 
While Campolieto and Lee do often perform as a duo, Jo Henley is predominantly a full-band experience. Drummer Mike Migliozzi and bassist Kent Stephens are a formidable rhythm section, nimbly moving between train beats, blues boogies and funk, while at the same time adding rich layers of vocal harmonies. Keyboardist Amer Saab is a regular guest too, and bassist Tony Markellis has for many years been a frequent contributor to both live shows and studio albums.
