Jo Harman may not yet be one of the biggest names in music, at least not quite yet, but Jo’s talent, ability, hard work and determination will pay off soon I’m sure. Sun 19th February 2017 provided the official launch for Jo’s second album People We Become, released on Feb 3rd to much critical acclaim and rightly so. Considering Jo and her team have always done so much of the distribution work themselves they have done a great job in promoting her name and her music.
Following on from 2013’s excellent Dirt On My Tongue, the new album takes on the mantel and just pushes so strongly forward, really well written songs and having Michael McDonald as a guest on the track “When We Were Young” (now playlisted on BBC Radio 2) is no harm at all.
Having followed her music since 2012 it’s been brilliant to see the development as an Artist and the new album is just stunning, as was her performance on the night in the Jazz Cafe, the new tracks sound amazing live and with an extended 8 piece band it just worked so well, having such a talented backing band must be a big help too. It was a pleasure to be in attendance and and even bigger one to be able to bring the camera along and take some photos. Working on them at the moment and hopefully will have a gallery uploaded over the next couple of days.Seriously go check out Jo’s music, if you like Soulful Blues, with a number of influences and a great voice, it would be criminal to miss out on this. There will be plenty of Live dates this year in the US/UK/Europe so if you can make sure you get to see the live show.
