Most of the songs on “SAVED”, sound like pocket symphonies; they’re pop songs at heart, but infused with many diverse flavors, propulsive and hooky, and adorned with just the right bells and whistles, so as not to disturb Potter’s sultry-to-soaring vocals.
Singer/songwriter Jo Potter is, for me, one of the most distinctive voices either inside or outside of the independent scene. Her music needs no artificial embellishment, no production trickery, no illusions or games. Her songs find the most direct route to basic emotional cores, and her amazing voice mines for the feeling in each of them, bringing gold to the listener.”
Jo’s voice is the true star under the spotlight. Her vocals are melodic and bright, yet deep and warm. She has the depth and range of a powerful jazz singer, but she also has a modern pop appeal that makes me think of artists such as Dido or Alanis Morissette, just to mention a few. Whether she is performing an energetic tune or a mellow ballad, she never fails to charm with her tuneful vocals, her outstanding dynamic range, and witty lyricism.”
“Valentine’s Day Song,” the heartfelt, acoustic guitar-driven first single by the Miami-based singer/songwriter, was #1 Most Added for Three Weeks Straight on FMQB’s AC40 Chart, and spent the week of Valentine’s Day at #36—surrounded by songs by Rob Thomas, Train, Chris Rice, Gwen Stefani and Michael Buble”
The amount of natural ability, talent and skill that Potter is working with could very well put her onstage & airwaves all throughout the globe…she’s a world-class singer with extraordinary capabilities and a passionate bond to all-things-music, and her every move on the microphone confirms that.”
In addition to the writing, it’s worth pointing out how enjoyable Jo Potter’s voice is to listen to. The character and tone of the voice presents something brand new for audiences to embrace, and regardless of the setting – the mellow or the upbeat, the delicate or the intense and passionate, the artist’s performance never falls short.”
