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. “I’m not trying to fit in anywhere,” admits Harman, whose super-sized voice fills the record’s 10 tracks. “I’m just trying to write classic songs, and present them with classic production. When you try to chase what’s going on at the moment, then it’s going to sound old very quickly.”

"Sometimes you hear a voice that leaves you speechless" Huey Morgan, Fun Loving Criminals on his BBC Radio 2 Show

"On course to be the finest UK female blues and soul voice" Gavin Martin, Daily Mirror

"It was my great privilege to work with her. Listening to her interpretation of one of my songs was a spiritual experience” – Michael McDonald (Soul superstar and Doobie Brothers frontman)

“I believe this lady to be one of the finest singers this country has to offer! She really is tremendous! I hope our paths cross again” – Rag N Bone Man

“An exquisite album rooted in the classic, timeless music of past generations, and quite possibly the finest blue eyed soul vocal performance you’ll hear all year.” – Get Ready To Rock

Jo Harman will be at The Globe in Hay on Saturday, February 9 at 8pm. To book, call the box office on 01497 821762 or visit
