During her time with Blues & Soul Jo was known as the mag's 'girl about town', a reference to her ability to get up close and personal with everyone from Redman to Jim Jones. During a year spent in New York city, she got all the industry gossip before anyone else and partied like no other. After the demise of Blues and Soul, Jo decided it was time to get all the old team back together and create something new and exciting, that is Black Sheep Magazine.

For many years, Mark has scraped together a living as a club DJ, spinning the length of the UK and in more than 30 other countries as a result. Appropriately, for ten years he was Section Editor of Blues & Soul's Clubhoppin' pages, as well as a feature writer and reviewer. He also presents a weekly show on FM107.9, forcing the sounds of underground hip-hop on to the rural backwaters of Oxfordshire.

He's been bad with Buju, arousing with Amy, cordial with Corinne, excitable with Eve and naughty with Norah. This lamb with the ladies, smut-soaked scribe certainly isn't one of the more sheepish members of the flock. After shearing through multiple genres at Undercover Magazine and ramming home his musical knowledge at Blues & Soul, we've finally penned him in as Senior Contributor down at the Black Sheep farm.

Ryan Proctor has freelanced for various publications and websites over the years, including Blues & Soul, Hip-Hop Connection, The Source, XXLMag.Com and IDJ. He has had what some may suggest is an unhealthy obsession with hip-hop culture since first hearing Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five's "The Message" back in 1982 when he was just 7-years-old. To this day he can still sometimes be found arguing that "The Message" remains the greatest rap record ever made. When not writing reviews, transcribing interviews or cleaning his sneaker collection with a toothbrush, RP enjoys kicking back to quiet storm classics from Teena Marie, Marvin Gaye, Rick James etc, watching old episodes of "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air", and spending money he doesn't really have on vintage hip-hop vinyl. It ain't nuthin' but a "P" thang!

As Editor of the UK's market-leading black music magazine for close to thirty years, nobody in the industry comes with more experience than the legend that is Bobby Kilo. His longevity, bad jokes and instant willingness to regroup to the pub at the drop of a hat have made him universally known and loved throughout the business. If Bob were to ever sit down and pen his memoirs, don't expect them to be ready for a decade or two.

A well-respected authority on soul, jazz and funk, Charles has written for many music publications, including Blues & Soul - where he was the soul section editor - MOJO, Record Collector, Shook and more recently Wax Poetics. He's just finished collaborating with singer Marva Whitney on her autobiography - due to be published by Bank House Media in 2009 - and spends the rest of his time writing CD liner notes and putting compilations together for record companies.

What Mr. Bruley doesn't know about street-friendly artwork and design isn't worth knowing. Starting his design career at the infamous Fat Boss magazine he quickly became Blues & Soul's Art Director, designing the magazine's well-received urban-style makeover in the early 00s, along with the infamous B&S 'barcode' logo. The fact that he's also a confirmed urban music fan stands him in ideal stead.

Jeff is a champion. A winner. A champion, winning sheep if you like. But his wool grows thick and fast, and becomes a hot and heavy onus upon him, that's why he's such a miserable sheep. And even though every sheep has the right to a free hair cut so that they remain cool and comfortable, Jeff just grows his longer and longer like some demented rastafarian ram (or ramstafarian!) No wonder he's always bleating on everyday about something or other. Remember, if your hair is getting to be uncomfortably long, see your sheep hairdresser for an appointment. They are always there for you.
