Laurence Made Me Cry is Glasgow based songstress, artist and multi-instrumentalist Jo Whitby’s moniker. There’s an odd familiarity about Whitby’s music. Her songs bring with them a sense of timelessness and warmth like meeting up with an old friend.

In recent years Laurence Made Me Cry has performed at Sŵn, Wales Goes Pop and Green Man Festival as well as making it on to Glastonbury’s 2013 Emerging Talent longlist. As LMMC Whitby has supported the likes of Erin Lang, Rachel Sermanni and Meursault and having received the Musicians Benevolent Fund ‘Emerging Excellence Award’ in February 2013 she headed out on her first tour around the UK in the autumn.

2011 saw the release of ‘The Rain Song EP’ – a collection of lo-fi folk songs recorded at home over several years from as far back as 2006. Stark, melancholic and tender, the songs received a warm reception and gained instant airplay on BBC and local radio. Not willing to wait another 5 years before releasing her next record Whitby set to work on her debut album ‘The Diary Of Me’, a worldwide collaborative record made possible by a successful crowd-funding project. Featuring contributions from artists such as Pulco, Dementio13, Freddie Nunez and Salwa Azar - ‘The Diary Of Me’ is a reflective and intimate exploration, a truly interactive journey taken by all the participants – collaborators and listeners alike.

The album was shortlisted for the 2013 Welsh Music Prize.
