Josie McDonough

Our lead singer Josie began her singing career in the sixties, recording for Decca under the name of Truly Smith.

Her singles are still much sought after by Northern Soul fans. In the seventies she switched careers to teaching, but was tempted out of musical retirement to join other Newcastle musicians to form the Legendary Sixties Band as their lead singer.

Josie’s other passion is film and she has recently gained an MA in International Film Studies at Newcastle University.
