about

Melodic folk-rock. Stories of love and glory told by a soaring female vocal.


The band is made up of Jo Alexis on acoustic guitar, Dan Reid on drums, Sean Flora, on bass and back-up vocals and John Wyatt on lead guitar.

Jo and band recorded at Blue Dog Studios in Portland and Jo co-produced the record with the amazing Bruce Robertson. She had some heavy-hitters as guest performers: you can hear the guitar riffs of Maria Callahan from the Doris Daze; Tae Won Yu plays a mean guitar on "It's Not Because" and sings on "Four Years"; Adam Mishaga eloquently plays the cello on Mambo Mouth, and Mick Chegwidden slides some tasty notes on the first cut, Take Me Home. The 13 original tunes garnered favorable reviews. The Willamette Week said that Jo's voice "...cuts straight to the heart with a raw strength that Alanis can't muster". Sweet baby Onion began playing regularly live on Portland's alternative radio station, KBOO. Their big CD release party was at the Laurelthirst Pub.
