Widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest ever soul/blues fuelled voices, Jo Harman remains a genre-defying, independently minded artist of rare credibility, who makes sincere and heartfelt music, often compared to that of the ‘golden age of music’.
Jo recently released her second studio album ‘People We Album’ to much critical acclaim and no little commercial success. Indeed the ‘lead single’, ‘When We Were Young’ (featuring Michael McDonald) achieved BBC Radio 2 play-listing, as well as play listing on other mainstream national stations across Ireland (RTE1) and Europe. The album has also made various ‘best of’ lists for 2017.
A multi award winning/nominated performer, Jo has achieved considerable success at home and abroad, headlining prestigious venues and festivals throughout Europe and beyond, including playing as one of eleven (otherwise household name) artists to 300k people at Parkpop, in the Hague. She was also invited by Amnesty International to perform at their prestigious ‘Ambassador of Conscience’ Award in Berlin alongside the likes of Patti Smith and Joan Baez.
Rag ‘N Bone recently took to social media to proclaim her ‘one of this country’s finest talents’ and soul super star Michael McDonald advised ‘hearing her cover one of my songs was a spiritual experience’.
