Jo Burt continues to write and perform music and now lives in Sherborne with his wife, Antonia (a backing singer in his group). Together with other seasoned professional musicians they perform regularly in the UK, Europe and North America as The Jo Burt Experience, promoting Jo’s current album ‘Indestructible’.  Jo’s writing style is based on his background of rock, with a southern-style influence and a very English Beatles-esque twist. To use his own terms – ‘Anglicana’ and ‘psycho-country’.
