Event Description

Jo 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 playlisting on other mainstream national stations across Ireland (RTE1) and Europe. The album has also made various ‘best of’ lists, internationally. 

Last summer Jo duetted on ‘Reach Out (I’ll Be There)’ with Motown songwriting legend Lamont Dozier, the lead single from his ‘Re-imagination’ album which also features Gregory Porter, Graham Nash, Todd Rundgren, Rumer and other notable international names.

A multi-award-winning/nominated performer, Jo has achieved considerable success at home and abroad, headlining prestigious venues and festivals throughout Europe and beyond, including playing as one of eleven artists to 300k people at Parkpop, in The Hague. Amongst many other highlights, Jo was asked to perform for, and alongside, Joan Baez at Amnesty International’s prestigious ‘Ambassador of Conscience’ awards.

Last Autumn Jo was asked by Festival Director Leo Green to open London’s BluesFest performing a set at the 20k capacity O2 Arena.

Rag ‘N Bone recently took to social media to proclaim her ‘one of this country’s finest talents’ and soul superstar Michael McDonald advised ‘hearing her cover one of my songs was a spiritual experience’. 

Harman says “I’m not trying to fit in anywhere, I’m just trying to write classic songs”. On this evidence..she seems to know what she’s doing’  –  Daily Express
