Widely regarded as one of Europe's finest ever soul/blues fuelled voices, Jo Harman is an international touring and recording artist who remains a genre-defying, independently minded artist of rare credibility.
An artist who makes sincere and heartfelt music, The Mirror proclaimed her 'UK's finest female soul blues voice' who, according to Classic Rock, writes 'lip-biting beautiful songs'.
Her recent 'Sideways' single (released September 2019) attracted 150,000 streams - and extensive radio support - within days of release.
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'.
Jo is supported by Sean Taylor.
Sean Taylor’s unique songwriting is a late night cocktail of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Jack Kerouac; With voice that is a cross between John Martyn and Van Morrison and a guitar style that sounds like an acoustic Stevie Ray Vaughan jamming with JJ Cale … His live shows fuse world class songwriting with stories from the road, Sean Taylor is one of the most exciting and hard working names on the international roots and blues circuit.

'The next big thing. The songs are the main event here - and they are lip-bitingly beautiful.' - Country Music Magazine
