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.
Singer/songwriter Jo Potter reveal shades of memorable music with her exquisite album, “Saved,” as it is a beautiful blend of acoustic Pop/Rock music. Potter impresses the listener right from the start with her sweet and silky voice as she sings through each song with emotive melodic tonality. These finely crafted songs are well produced, extremely entertaining, and will seep into your soul with its relaxing ambience.
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 distinguished tones of Jo’s voice have a unique quality that draws listeners in instantly. She has a powerful range with a gritty under-bite that is both sincere and raw. When combined with her stage presence, playfully mischievous at times and incredibly moving at others, audiences are left intrigued and yearning for more.
