Jopling and her band play music in a wide variety of styles including classical, pop, reggae, Irish folk, gypsy violin and rock, but are focusing their upcoming series of shows in support of her “Who’s Who” album. Their tour kicks off with a concert at the historic Paramount Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill, NY. on November 2nd.

“We couldn’t be more excited to get this music out and play for our ‘hometown fans’ at the Paramount in November,” said Daisy. “The lyrics speak to exactly how I feel about life, and I am uplifted as I arrange, record and perform this music. For the album, I chose Who songs which resonate deeply with me, and which I think sound amazing on the violin.”

Daisy is also an ardent supporter of music education and frequently invites school orchestras and choirs to join her at tour stops. She rehearses and instructs them, and ultimately, students perform alongside players in the orchestras accompanying some of her performances.

A Message From Daisy:

“As with all creations, this album has been an incredible journey for me.  I grew up in the countryside near London in a very musical household. We had no TV, and our musical focus was on the 400 years of great classical music, and somehow I never got to hear about The Who. I remember when I was 11 years old and just a few weeks into secondary school, arriving to a buzz rippling through the kids. “Have you heard?” “Heard what?,” I asked. “John Lennon has been shot!” I was too embarrassed to admit it, but I didn’t know who John Lennon was.

I first heard about The Who when I came to live in New York. My fans started asking, “Why don’t you play Baba O’Riley?” When I checked out the song, I felt it would sound great with just violin, piano, electric bass and drums.  My dear friend and genius composer Tristan Schulze wrote the arrangement, and the first time I performed it I was amazed at how natural I felt playing this music. One of my first critics, theatre director Tom Morris wrote: “Daisy Jopling plays classical music with the energy and spontaneity of a rock musician.”    There was something about the emotion of this music, which struck a chord deep within me. I felt completely at home playing it, as if it had been with me since childhood.

In 2018 I was asked by Felipe Souza, CEO of Tea 4 2 Productions in Mexico City, to record my Baba O’Riley. We had so much fun that I decided to record a whole album of Who songs. It was then that I started delving into their vast repertoire, and falling completely, intoxicatingly in love with their music. The lyrics speak to exactly how I feel about life, and I am uplifted as I arrange, record and perform this music. For the album, I chose Who songs which resonate deeply with me, and which I think sound amazing on the violin. They come together to form a storyline throughout the album. I’m infinitely grateful for this vehicle, which is allowing me to express my deepest truths, and have so much fun!
