“Heroin and Helicopters” Tour

+ special guest: JO HARMAN

“Citizen Cope is D.C.’s finest export since Marvin Gaye” – The Washington Post

American Urban-folk artist Citizen Cope has built a following organically over the years since his 2002 debut album.

His single “Let The Drummer Kick” eventually went Platinum without any support from commercial radio. In 2004, Cope followed up his self-titled debut with ‘The Clarence Greenwood Recordings,’ an album Vibe Magazine praised as “flawless throughout”. Songs from the record would go on to be covered by everyone from Carlos Santana and Sheryl Crow to Richie Havens and Rhymefest, and in the years that followed, Cope has shared stages with superstars like Eric Clapton. His latest album “Heroin and Helicopters” is out now on Rainwater Recordings.

Special guest support comes from Blues-Soul Vocal Powerhouse Jo Harman.

“Jo Harman is one of this country’s finest talents” – Rag’n’Bone Man

Widely regarded as one of Europe’s finest ever soul/blues fuelled voices, Jo Harman is an international touring and recording artist who remains a genre-defying, independently minded artist of rare credibility. An artist who makes sincere and heartfelt music, The Mirror proclaimed her ‘UK’s finest female soul blues voice’ who, according to Classic Rock, writes ‘lip-biting beautiful songs’.
