Jo Harman & Band
(click the name to visit their site)
Jo Harman’s evocative voice and exciting stagecraft has seen her dubbed one of the most compelling singers of her generation. Glowing reviews and growing airplay internationally, 3 separate BBC Introducing sessions, an increasingly impressive gig roster and prestigious support slots for the likes of Marlena Shaw, Terry Callier and Average White Band have only added to Jo’s growing reputation as a blues, gospel and soul fuelled singer of exceptional promise.
Having already worked with Grammy Winning, double Grammy nominated and multi million selling producers, Jo is currently recording tracks with a view to releasing a debut studio EP product in 2012. ‘I’m in no rush’ concedes Jo. ‘It has to be right, it has to be me and it has to be good. I got some more dues to pay and I’m busy paying ‘em… hang on in there, its coming’.
A mini tour opening for US based soul’funk legends Average White Band led to Jo being asked to front up as vocalist for AWB sax player Freddy V’s all star touring band. Major guest spots with UK's own supergroup Kokomo and a session as ‘voice of choice’ for double Grammy nominated producer James McMillan’s song co-written by Amy Winehouse, further underlined Jo’s industry credentials as a vocalist of rare distinction.
