Tina Harrod wins Best Australian Jazz Vocal Album

Already much loved on the R&B and soul scene, it was with the release of the more jazz influenced ‘Worksongs’ last year that Tina Harrod cemented her reputation as one of Australia’s great singers.

“I consider myself a kind of musical nomad because I love all kinds of music so it was really special to be embraced by the jazz community and receive this award.” says Tina, re-united with her Bell award after briefly misplacing it at a late night Chinese restaurant in Melbourne’s Little Bourke St.

Rave reviews have applauded the emotional power of Tina’s distinctive voice and her impeccable interpretation of artists as varied as Nina Simone, Portishead and Nick Drake, while her knock-out live shows continue to swell the ranks of her loyal fanbase.

Recorded live in the studio over one day, Tina’s winning album ‘Worksongs’ is the result of Tina’s long-standing relationship with her stellar trio Jonathan Swartz (bass), Matt McMahon (piano) and Hamish Stuart (drums). They are currently working on Tina’s next album.
