"Singing is not just a passion. To me it is like my soul breathing; it's not only something I like to do, but something I have to do in order to feel alive," says Jo Potter, who has been involved in music since the age of three. Potter is a gifted singer, songwriter, award-winning flautist as well as a hack guitar and piano player.
Potter's passion is reflected in her recently released CD, "8 CIRCLES." From deciding what material should go on to having it in hand, the CD has been a welcomed struggle. She also produced the songs and it's here, Potter says, "where I can see how much I've grown as a musician."
Potter's music is captivating, memorable, and moving. Her drive to create raw, yet soulful music was apparent after the release of her first song when she received success by being named AOL's Musician of the Week and the Winner of the Nirut Songwriting Competition. She has been a featured artist on ArtistLaunch.com and interviewed by FreeWorldRadio.com.
With clever, yet universal lyrics, strong hooks, and an infectious radio-friendly sound, it is no wonder why all her songs have hit the Artist Launch top 40 play list and broadcast on college radio such as WVUM, 90.5FM. Potter's lyrics can also be described as emotive, reflective, and introspective. Shaping her songs are insights from experiencing upsetting or loving relationships. Letting herself become vulnerable and expressing those thoughts and feelings is not something Potter shies away from.
Nor is Potter shy when it comes to performing. Electrifying, emotional, and charismatic, Potter's performances demonstrate her ability as a musician, a songwriter, and singer. She is regularly featured in the hottest venues for live music in South Florida including Downtown Live in Fort Lauderdale. Her fans are only increasing at each performance. Jo has been a showcased artist at The French Quarter and Boardwalk CafÃ© in Nashville. She's also performed for the students of MTSU at The Boro and the Summer Solstice Festival at Faces. She's headlined the International Beer Festival in Miami Beach and has made appearances on TV shows such as The Roof.
Potter's dynamic, captivating essence can be found in her music and lyrics performed on her CD, "8 CIRCLES." Experience Potter's soul breathing through her many electrifying yet emotional tracks.
