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 (see accolades at foot of the page) 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, North America and beyond, including playing as one of eleven (otherwise household name) artists to 300k people at Parkpop, in the Hague. Amongst many other career highlights in her relatively short career, Jo 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,
Jo has indeed recently been asked to guest on Motown Songwriting legend Lamont Dozier’s ‘Reimagination’ album – alongside other legendary guests such as Gregory Porter and Sir Cliff Richard – and, in fact, she duets with Lamont on the lead single ‘Reach Out, I’ll Be There’. She’ll be touring Japan with Lamont as part of that project, as well as featuring on his prestigious UK tour.
Come hear why Rag ‘N Bone took to social media to proclaim Jo as ‘one of this country’s finest talents’ and why soul super star Michael McDonald advised ‘hearing her cover one of my songs was a spiritual experience’.
The show at Chapel Arts will be a full band show comprising Jo’s world class musicians (with CV’s to match) on guitar, keyboards, bass and drums, in addition to Jo herself on lead vocals.
