Jojo Ripley and Vince Brown came together remotely to record a self-written song and named themselves after Cold Bath Road in Harrogate.

Jojo Ripley and Vince Brown came together remotely to record self-written new song Exhale at Eiger Studios in Leeds under the watchful eye of multi-platinum selling producer Will Jackson of Kaiser Chiefs’ fame.

Enlisted to provide vocals on the track is Ruby Joy, 20, a talented up-and-coming singer-songwriter.

All the particpants in the Cold Bath Road project have previous ‘form’.

Vince Brown, who first met Will Jackson at Harrogate’s Bluestrike studios in the 1980s, was behind a hugely successful Teletubbies song while Ruby’s dad was in much-loved local groups Zoot and the Roots and The Blueflies which many Harrogate music fans will remember.

Ruby’s mum is the link with Vince and Jojo.

Vince said: “We have all been touched in some way by the devastating impact of Covid.

“I hope our song will offer a positive, reflective message.”

Cold Bath Road’s Exhale is available via Spotify.
