Jo Lawry on tour

Jo Lawry 2012
It's great to see Jo Lawry on tour again, with Sting and buddies. But the downside is - she doesn't have time to record more CDs. Fortunately, there are some new videos of Jo Lawry on YouTube:








Sting and Jo Lawry Live in ViƱa del Mar
The whole concert (nearly) in HD

Jo Lawry - The Water Is Wide

Here Jo is in improvisational mood

Jo Lawry - I'm Old Fashioned

The song is 'old fashioned' but the singer isn't! When the touring takes a break, I hope Jo Lawry and Sting (and their excellent instrumental collaborators) will spend some time in the studio recording CDs. Another possibility is to just publish the best of the live concerts, which, judging by recent videos, might be even better.

  2. #JoLawry Becca Stevens jazz at BRIC House, March 30

    BRIC is pleased to welcome acclaimed Brooklyn-based singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Becca Stevens to BRIC House on March 30 2017.

    Always reaching, always expanding, Becca Stevens - whom The New York Times describes as a "best-kept secret" and "impressively absorbing" - reinvents herself once again with her latest album, Regina.


    Stevens' style has always evaded categorization, and with Regina, even more so.

    One hears pop, rock, R&B and funk side-by-side with traditional Appalachian and British folk, classical, world music, and jazz.

    Intricate instrumentation and rhythms seamlessly intertwine with vocals and melodies that work their way into your brain.

    Stevens has been compared to Bjork, St Vincent, Tori Amos and Joni Mitchell and is certainly making her mark on the international music scene in a big way, establishing herself as a long term and important artist for the future.

    Special guests at this performance include Mike League (Snarky Puppy), Michelle Willis (Lighthouse Band), Jo Lawry (jazz vocals) with Chris Tordini, Jordan Perlson & Liam Robinson (Becca Stevens Band).
