BIO

Lorie Jo is a lover of music first and foremost. Singing on stage at a few church events and putting on shows for the neighbors are some of the earliest memories this gal has. Pulling from one of her own songs she writes, “It’s funny how a song can soothe your soul. Pick you up when you are broken – make you whole.” Maybe because some of her favorite people she knew as a child played or maybe because it was passed down through a line of musicians and church performers, Lorie Jo can always find a way to connect with music and people, no matter the genre. At the suggestion of her high school history teacher at 19, she picked up the guitar. This would finally blend music to her prolific writing of poetry and short stories. At 23 she founded South Forty Music Festival. “Seeing the festival’s last days, as a result of the economic strain, in 2009 was one of the most difficult things to let go of. You work so hard and make some many great connections with people you never would have met.” Living in the Midwest Tri-ad of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri, Lorie Jo moved east to Nashville, TN in 2005. She has had the privilege of playing and recording with Grammy Nominated Drummer Alexander Arzamastsev (Bering Strait), Jeff Gilkinson (The Dillards), and has performed with a myriad of talented musicians and songwriters throughout her career. After a 5 year sabbatical, Lorie Jo has resurfaced fresh and is currently working on her third album.

WHERE IT COMES FROM

Live @ Abe + Jake's Landing“My music comes from my love for the beauty and fragility of life and the human spirit. I often feel as though I am merely the vessel that produces the song; the message comes from somewhere else. Putting stories and poems to page has always been there for me. Sharing and connecting with others is the best way I know how to let these stories live and touch other people the way they touch me. I feel privileged to be able to continually tap this creative well and am so fortunate and grateful to also have the guts to perform what feel like personal stories. And sometimes they are but they help others heal, dance, smile, cry, connect, and love. You really can’t ask for more than that.” – Lorie Jo Bridges
