Jo Harrop & Jamie McCredie, Jazz guitar & voice. Both from the North east of England, and based in London, Jo & Jamie connected, sharing a love for playing intimate jazz songs, & getting deep ‘inside’ of the song – their music is inspired by the likes of recordings by Ella & Joe Pass, Bill Evans & Tony Bennett, as well as jazz arrangements of songs from other genres. A mix of up beat swing, cool latin, sultry blues & timeless ballads.
” A jazz singer who has a refined mellow sound evoking the greats such as Anita O’Day & Billie Holliday and has graced many prestigious stages and studios around the UK, she delivers a beautifully warm and swinging sound.”
“No worries here, this girl was born to sing jazz! Jo has all the emotional warmth and sensibility to melt the chilliest of hearts, and her laid back charm implies the right sort of tact she naturally has for her engaging take on soul jazz. Undeniable star quality” Blues & Soul Magazine
“ A singing sensation”…. Her voice is amazing – think Islay whisky, dark porter or tannin-rich red wine –deep, the lissome lady is a class act”
“Harrop has excellent tone, and great stage prescence” Marlbank
