Tina Harrod Band - Sydney Women's Jazz Festival

Harrod pours herself, every inch, sinew and synapse, into the songs…she gives you goosebumps - John Shand, SMH

The great Sydney soul singer Tina Harrod has a new album, Revolution is Eternal - it's sound is more modern than her previous but it showcases her soul-drenched, kick ass vocals. Cool this about this album is that she has done it with two part back-up singers. Ben Hauptmann on guitar and Ev Mannell on drums. Also a great band. Here is the video of the title track.

Born in NZ, Tina Harrod’s Fijian and Welsh ancestry certainly indicated she might one day become a professional singer. From her early days she was surrounded by a rich and varied musical legacy that sparked her passion for music and performance. In the late 80s, after moving to Sydney, Tina joined the legendary Jackie Orszaczky in his soul incarnation, The Grandmasters. Their acclaimed 1997 album ‘Family Lore’ won Tina the attention of the music media and punters alike. In 2004 she released her first solo album ‘Shacked up in Paradise’ featuring Tina’s original songs, some co-written with Orszaczky.

It was with the release of ‘Worksongs’ in 2008 that Tina was recognized as one of Australia’s great singers. Recorded live in one day, ‘Worksongs’ was the culmination of a couple of years performing with her trio (Jonathon Zwartz, Hamish Stuart, Matt McMahon). Rave reviews applauded Tina’s impeccable interpretation of artists as varied as Nina Simone and Nick Drake while her knock-out live shows continued to swell the ranks of her loyal fan-base. ‘Worksongs’ went on to win an Australian Jazz Award for Best Vocal Album.

Tina followed this up with an album of originals, ‘Temporary People’ in 2010. An extraordinary work of vulnerability, emotive power and exquisite musicianship ‘Temporary People’ topped the list of many critics jazz albums of the year and won Tina many accolades, including her ability to communicate universal themes in intensely personal songs.

With her latest album ‘The Revolution is Eternal’ Tina continues to push boundaries and blaze a path of her own. Tina Harrod’s journey of musical discovery, like many great artists, continues to unfold.

    Thanks Amy for organising. Really good acoustics in this refurbished venue.

    I only joined the group after the last song because the band had already started when I arrived and the table looked full. Had good company with a stranger until then anyhow.

    The air conditioning worked great where I was (half way between you and the bar) whereas your corner was surprisingly muggy. I wonder if the manager is aware of that?

    Where/how will we meet up?

    October 13, 2013

    • Amy C.

      i will get the foundry to reserve a table for meet up.

      Would it help you secure a table if some of us got there a little earlier? Unless they do reservations, it will be awkward to sit alone with 12 empty seats and tell others "Sorry, they are taken".

    Hi everyone, really looking forward to this one. I just wanted to share this video I found on youtube of a female jazz artist from the 60's called Anita O'Day. when I first heard her singing a song called 'Peel me a grape' it took my breathe away. She also has a really interesting life history which I think kind of makes me appreciate her even more as an artist. Let me know what you guys think of her. I love watching the black and white videos from ages ago and this is one of them.

    This song in the video you posted is awesome. I read she is a Nina Simone fan - I wonder if Simone would have gone in this direction too?
