With “Isolation Has No Good Vibration” soul rocker and multi-instrumentalist Jo Oliver speaks from the heart of many people who were suffering cause of isolation! Funk Rock from Berlin: JO OLIVER releases brand new single on the theme of “Isolation With “Isolation Has No Good Vibration” soul rocker and multi-instrumentalist Jo Oliver speaks from the heart of many sufferers!

Funk Rock” brings back memories of the legendary Rock-Palast performance of the US-American funk rockers “Mother’s Finest” from Atlanta / Georgia to many older rock music fans. The Berlin musician “Jo Oliver” followed this performance as a teenager and was on fire about this energetic style mix of funk and rock. Years later – after Jo Oliver himself performed on countless stages as a guitarist for other singers and he played guitar on tens of studio productions, wrote songs for quite a few artists and also produced them – this love for funk-rock resurfaces. The songwriter and multi-instrumentalist finally discovered his love for singing and now writes songs in an unmistakable Jo-Oliver sound with rocking guitars, funky riffs and grooves and the depth of soul. “The Spirit Of Soul Meets The Groove Of Funk And The Power Of Rock!” is how you could describe this sound.

So the brand new single “Isolation Has No Good Vibration” shines in the funk rock genre (hand played musical instruments!) with an incredibly rich sound, very catchy hooklines and style defining set vocals. Release date was March 11, 2022.

So the brand new single “Isolation Has No Good Vibration” shines in the funk rock genre (hand played musical instruments!) with an incredibly rich sound, very catchy hooklines and style defining set vocals. Release date was March 11, 2022. You might think the danceable soul-funk groove in the style of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” meets the rocking guitars of AC/DC and the set vocals of Queen. An unbelievably crazy, yet coherent mix of styles rocks out of the speakers!

No wonder Jo Oliver not only plays all the musical instruments himself, but is above all an excellent rhythm and lead guitarist, who not only puts the stamp on his own songs, but also repeatedly delivers valuable guitar work in the service of other artists (e.g. Gliffo – www.gliffo.net). You can hear that clearly – here not least in the snotty licks and the wonderfully constructed, firstclass guitar solo! – and into this rhythmically skillfully worked out “groove-bed” are placed bass, keyboards, drums, lead and choir vocals – all recorded by the artist single-handedly, including the studio technical details. From composition to arrangement, instrumental recordings, solo and set vocals, mixing and mastering to the final touches, the multi-talented artist does it all himself. A real challenge, both in terms of craftsmanship and on a technical level, but which also guarantees an independent sound and thus an artistic recognizability.

No other artist far and wide sounds like this! Here the guitar licks sparkle, the rhythm guitars groove, the clavinett and the crisp bass. Jo Oliver lets his solo guitar howl like once Jimi Hendrix and the vocals stand vociferously above the production, finely tuned by well harmonized choir voices supported at the appropriate points, but never pushed away. And so it comes as little surprise that Jo Oliver (http://www.jooliver.net) has already won a number of awards over the course of his music career (see links below) and was awarded the German Rock & Pop Prize in the category “best song of the year” for his previous single “Respect Don’t Panic”. With his soul-rock debut single “Shine On (You),” which has been streamed over

750,000 times on Spotify alone (as of Feb. 2022), Oliver immediately made Ranker’s list of “Best Soul/Rock Bands & Artists.” The newcomer “Gliffo” (http://www.gliffo.net), produced by him, received an international music award at the “Song Of The Year Contest” for his debut single “Get The Sun In Your Head” and was honored five times in total for the two singles “Feel Good The Way You Are” and “Saide (Abschiedslied)” at the 39. Among others, in the categories “best composition of the year” and “best studio recording of the year”, both of which also go to the account of Jo Oliver, who had written and produced the two songs under his real name.

The content of this crisp funk-rock song was inspired by the stories of suffering of many people who, due to isolation measures, slipped into loneliness and not infrequently into depression. The decisive factor was ultimately the case of a relative living abroad who died in relative isolation. Many dying people no longer had the chance to say goodbye to their beloved friends and family members. Today, many relatives are still working to come to terms with the circumstances of these strokes of fate. All these people the artist wants to give a voice, to those suffering from isolation he dedicated this song. “It is important that our empathy applies to all people who experience suffering” says the musician, and with this sentence explicitly includes the people in Ukraine who have innocently fallen on hard times due to the war, many of whom have also been isolated from their families and friends. Since his Ukrainian friend had to rescue his own daughter from embattled Kiev, Jo Oliver had also experienced this tragedy quasi up close in his own environment. “Isolation” can take many forms and entail many human dramas. It is important to process also these uncomfortable topics in songs…
