‘Not even Billie Holiday can cast a shadow here’ – Michael Dwyer, The Age (4 stars)
“There are really only two great Australian soul and R&B singers: Renee Geyer and Tina Harrod…Harrod connects with the song more deeply than ordinary singers.” – Sydney Morning Herald
Following on from the phenomenal success of her two recent albums Temporary People (2009) and Worksongs (2008), one of Australia’s truly great singers, Tina Harrod, will treat Canberra to the full passion of her live performances with her National ‘Underneath Your Spell’ Tour.
Tina Harrod, like many great artists, continues to push boundaries and blaze a path of her own – already celebrated as a pre-eminent soul and R&B singer, Tina has been exploring more jazz influenced territory with stunning results.
Tina tours with her trio of Australia’s top-notch jazz players – Bassist & Co-Writer Jonothan Zwartz, Pianist Matt McMahon & Drummer Hamish Stuart. Tina Harrod sings about love, loss and pain like no other.
In baring her soul, both on stage and in her recorded works, Tina channels personal experience into universal themes that resonate with people across the spectrum. Tina’s authenticity and emotional power has gained her legions of fans, punters and critics alike. ‘The more I get to know who I am, the more interesting the music becomes,’ says Tina.
Tina Harrod just keeps on getting better… don’t miss the opportunity to see her!
‘Harrod’s voice is truly an instrument in its own right’ – Noel Mengel, The Courier Mail (5 stars)
‘Harrod’s style embodies force and fragility’ – John McBeath, The Australian (4 stars)
‘Harrod pours herself, every inch, sinew and synapse, into the songs… she gives you goosebumps.’ – John Shand, SMH
