He is an eclectic creative and performer who uses music to share the truth he has learnt in life and in Christ.

His latest single “NEVER FAR” off his soon-to-be-released album “WE ARE DEEP” features Ore Macaulay – world renown writer, poet and spoken-word performer.

In his own words;

“When we do not meditate on God's truth often, it's amazing how easy it is for the our minds to even begin accepting the idea that we can be too far away from God. Often after we stray into doubt's depth or sin's pit, we treat God as though He is a location on a map that we left behind as we strayed. He is not! He is the Whole Map! Never a location on it! You can never be too far from Him!”

- Jo Deep

The inspiration and creativity behind this song captures the heart and leaves all in a state of solemnity because no matter how far you go, you’re never far! Jo Deep is a blessing to this world and to our generation. This multi-talented/multi-faceted artiste pours out his soul in all his songs, leading souls to Christ and inspiring the uninspired to dig deep within themselves and harness the amazing powers in their GOD-given gifts and talents. Ore Macaulay does poetic justice to this song by bringing personality and relatability to her spoken-word piece in such a way that warms up even the coldest of hearts. This collaboration is epic! Subtle in its instrumentation and ambiance but revolutionary in its message of hope, love and reconciliation. Wow! What a powerful song this is!! What a brilliant-beautiful piece of edification this is!!!
