MEET THE COLLECTIVE…
One of the founding directors of cjm, Jo’s background as a biochemist makes her the analytical mind of the team (some would say mad scientist!) As well as all her musical cjm responsibilities, Jo plans and coordinates much of the face-to-face work delivered by the team and works undercover as the cjm webmaster.
THE BAND & MINISTRY TEAM
Emily is a gifted all-round musician and an experienced youth worker. She’s been playing drums with us since she was fourteen. When she’s not on stage with the band, she works as a lay chaplain and youth worker in several schools in south Staffordshire.
Andy is a graduate of Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music. He first came into contact with the work of cjm|music while he was a sixth former at Bishop Walsh Catholic High School in Sutton Coldfield. Now a music teacher, Andy’s considerable talent as a classically trained musician is a real asset to the team.
Having been involved in some of the very earliest Soli House recordings, Andrew’s involvement in our work pre-dates the official existence of CJM. In 2011 Andrew left a 25 year teaching career to be make more time available to serve in music ministry.
Our secretary since the early days of cjm – Julie helps us all stay sane. She looks after most of our correspondence and admin. Julie also guards the cjm diary – she’s the one to speak to if you want to make a booking.
Tony is Mike’s Dad and since retiring from his job as Managing Director of a fine arts company he has been on hand to give us much needed administrative support. He looks after our stock-keeping and mail order service.
One of the founding directors of cjm, Mike Stanley sadly died on Thursday 6th June 2013, after a long battle with cancer. He is much-missed by the team, but his great talent and music legacy lives on in the on-going work and ministry.
After graduating in July 2000 with a degree in music technology from Staffordshire University, Aidan began working at cjm part time. In September ’02 he joined the team full time, and left in 2007 to pursue a career in teaching.
Mike lives in South London with his wife, Teresa. When he’s not on the road with the band he’s the Marketing Director of a major UK insurance company and does lots of high-powered, corporate stuff.
Anne worked with us full-time for 6 years, looking after all the planning and admin involved in concerts, tours and INSET training days. Anne moved on to pastures new in May 2012.
