Riverside Theatres in association with Sydney Festival presents

Tina Harrod

Venue Courtyard
Dates 12 January 2008

As part of the 2008 Sydney Festival, Riverside Theatres will present three of Sydney’s most sensational jazz singers in three unforgettable concerts in the Riverside Theatres courtyard: Tina Harrod, Virna Sanzone and Lily Dior.

Tina Harrod has been described as “our very own Aretha Franklin”. With a vocal versatility that moves effortlessly from funk to soul and jazz, she has the power to raise the roof. Tina sprang to prominence when she teamed up with jazz legend Jackie Orszaczky as one of The Godmothers, then became a regular part of Jackie’s soul incarnation The Grandmasters. Jacky and Tina collaborated on the albums Deep Down and Out and Family Lore. The Sydney Morning Herald’s Bruce Elder wrote: “What a voice! – Tina Harrod has one of those gorgeous vocal instruments, which just oozes soul, sex and sensuality.”

“The most solid soul-testifying voice…Tina Harrod take a bow” – Craig Pearce, Drum Media

Tina was the vocalist for Sandy Evans’ Sweet Freedom and for the Sydney Opera House production of Testimony. In 2003 Tina released her first solo album Shacked Up In Paradise for which she wrote most of the songs.

“Harrod brings the blue-flame intensity of her singing. It is a dark-hued, womanly voice; assured in pitch and as powerful as a train when called upon.” – John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald

At Riverside, Tina will appear with Jonathan Zwartz on Bass, Matthew McMahon on Piano and Hamish Stuart on Drums.
