"Singing and writing is not just a passion. It's like breathing. It's not something I want to do, but something I have to do." 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 gifts are well demonstrated in her independently released CD, "8 CIRCLES". From deciding what material should go on to having it in hand, the album 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. Her music was released nationally on commercial radio and with the Valentine's Day song topping the National FMQB chart at #9. Potter's lyrics can also be described as emotive and reflective making her songs easy to relate to. Potter says, "I'm no different than anyone else. We all feel the same things in our lives; love and loss, joy and pain." But Potter is so much different than all of us, especially on stage. Electrifying, emotional, and charismatic, Potter demonstrates her ability as a powerful performer as a musician, songwriter, and singer. So stop and take a listen...Experience the dynamic, captivating essence of Jo Potter. SHE'S WAITING FOR YOU....
