“A singing sensation… her voice is amazing…a class act”
Bebop Spoken Here
A talented singer inspired by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, Jo Harrop possesses a wonderfully clear, controlled and expressive voice. Already highly experienced she includes performances at venues such as the Jazz Cafe, Royal Albert Hall, the Sage Gateshead, Pizza Express and St. Martins In The Fields and has been featured on the likes of Courtney Pines' Radio 2 show 'Jazz Crusade', Jazz FM and BBC Radio London. Her album 'Weathering the Storm' also featuring guitarist Jamie McCredie and released in 2020 received glowing reviews ("a little gem" Guardian), and her new record, 'The Heart Wants' out this month promises to be another treat for those who like their jazz hip, swinging and heartfelt. For this performance tonight Jo will feature a few new songs from this latest project, accompanied by her band: Jamie on guitar, with Alex Hutton-piano, Jihad Darwish-bass, Pete Adam Hill-drums and special guest, Andy Davies-trumpet.
