As a member of British pop supergroup S Club 7, Jo O’Meara achieved international mega stardom back in the late 90’s and early 00’s, with the band conquering the charts and hearts of teenagers all around the world with their own unique brand of uplifting pop!
Nearly 20 years on since S Club went their separate ways, Jo is officially back to conquer planet pop once again, with the release of her second solo album With Love – a stunning collection of 12 mesmerising tracks, including the brand new single On The Surface.
Co-written by O’Meara, along with Norwegian singer Kjetil Morland and Nicky Mac, the beautifully elegant, reflective ballad sees Jo dig deep into her soul, to deliver a truly magnificent vocal performance – with the rich and emotive tone of her captivating voice, guaranteed to evoke a lifetimes worth of magical memories for an entire generation of devoted fans who grow up idolising the pop princess at the turn of the millennium.
Commenting on the single, Jo says: “This song is about how we can keep things bottled up inside, And people never knowing the true pain of what maybe inside someone! Sometimes it’s easier to put on a smile! Everyone is ok… on the surface.”
