Originally suggested to us as a potential contributor by Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes, Josephine Oniyama was keen to take part and immediately asked about covering 'The Gallows Pole', one of Odetta's most respected and authoritative traditional recordings. Josephine updates the song with a performance that's full of swagger and conviction, her appealingly raw vocal providing an emotional wallop that's hard to ignore.


from Beautiful Star: The Songs Of Odetta, track released November 30, 2009
Arranged, performed and recorded by Josephine Oniyama.
