Rarely does a singer come along in whom virtuosity meets sensitivity. Jo
Lawry at once tests the limits of technical facility and explores the furthest
reaches of musical expression. Her music, steeped in the jazz tradition
without being constrained by its traditional forms and functions,
demonstrates a unique combination of maturity and inventiveness.
Born in South Australia, Jo was awarded a 2003 Fulbright Fellowship for
study in the United States, which led her to New York where she still resides.
There, she studied with such jazz luminaries as Javon Jackson and John Riley,
and recorded with Renee Rosnes, Peter Washington and Lewis Nash
