Soul. Blues. Gospel. Beatles-worthy pop. These are the core ingredients of Jo Harman’s People We Become, a modern album rooted in the classic, timeless music of past generations.
Raised in Southwest England, Harman found success on her own terms with her debut, Dirt On My Tongue. The album was released independently in 2013 and supported by a touring schedule that found Harman sharing the stage with icons like Patti Smith, Joan Baez and Sinead O’Connor. Wildly successful for an independent record, Dirt On My Tongue was embraced with particular devotion by the blues community in the U.K., with Harman racking up more than a half-dozen nominations from the British Blues Awards.
Jo Harman’s blues soaked voice, superb song-craft and mesmerizing stage presence makes her one of the biggest draws currently on the live blues scene. Her multi-talented band move easily between heart-breaking sorrow and brassy filled Motown anthems, all the ingredients we need for an unmissable evening of dynamic live music.
