Jo Harman’s evocative voice, and exciting stagecraft, has seen her dubbed one of the most compelling singers of her generation.
From initial attention grabbing performances at The Great Escape Festival and headlining prestigious London clubs like the acclaimed 606 and award winning Hideaway, Jo and her top class band have been making waves on the 2012 festival, arts centre and prestigious music venue circuit.
Her latest, The 5 track EP Worthy Of Love contains both full and acoustic versions of the title track and "Sweet Man Moses" which garnered a British Blues Award Nomination.
I spoke with Jo about her career and her next steps.
