Description

Jo Harman’s Signature Soul EP. Vinyl edition includes two unreleased Bonus Tracks ‘Cloudy’ and ‘Cypress Avenue’. If you already own the CD, you can select the ‘Just Vinyl’ option.

After a three year absence, Jo Harman recently returned to the recording studio, where she cut an entirely unedited set, aptly entitled ‘Signature Soul’ reflecting the inimitable nature of Jo’s work as both a vocalist and as a song writing artist about whom noted French Daily Newspaper ‘Le Voix Du Nord’ described as
”…the most beautiful soulful voice of England. A bewitching voice, an impressive stage show, Jo Harman mixes intimate ballads, energetic rock, soul, blues, acoustic and gospel, brought together by the magic of a music that is at once classic, innovative and timeless.” Basically, what everyone played and sung in the moment is what you hear on this record. ‘Fixing’ and ‘editing’ is impossible anyway, simply because there is no or little separation between the players involved, singer included. The way that Jo and the guys approached this was pretty much that Take One was the run through to nail the changes and for the players to come up with some parts, Take Two was to test it out and Take Three was the record.

Here’s a trailer for the mini documentary ‘Jo Harman – A Signature Soul’

On material that might ordinarily involve added instrumentation, overdubs included, Jo and the guys had nowhere to hide. Raw, exposed, naked, just those four instruments and THAT voice. Real, natural, organic, soul.  Track Listing:

Don’t Let Me Down (Lennon – McCartney)
Keep You Guessing (Harman – McKewan)
The Angel Leaves Her Watermark (Wood)
Say That You Want Me (Harman – Davies)
Loving Arms (Jans)
