New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Songwriter- vocalist, Tina Harrod, received the reviews above for her breathtaking new album CITY OF LONGING in May. Tina presents two encore-launch shows in July at The Toff and Camelot Lounge.

Tina's fifth album takes her songwriting and mind-blowing vocal skills to another plane. City of Longing is an emotionally charged, soul-wrenching set with real musical depth, performed by creative and adventurous musicians. Tina is acknowledged as one of Australia's finest vocalists and she continues to find further seams to mine and depths to plumb within her craft. Her voice is a mature and powerful tool conveying great depth of emotion. Brace yourself and grab a drink before listening!

Born in New Zealand with Fijian and Welsh heritage Tina is a multi-award winning Australian recording artist. Tina's four albums have received high critical acclaim and the fifth, City of Longing, is released in 2018.

Tina has worked as a vocalist with Jimmy Barnes, Paul Kelly, Diesel, Vika & Linda Bull, Katie Noonan, Paul Grabowsky, The Whitlams, Guy Sebastian, Thirsty Merc, Wendy Matthews and Jackie Orszaczky. Her vocal ability is legendary in the music industry and Tina is known for her dynamic duet with Jimmy Barnes on his Double Happiness album, singing the Janis Joplin classic "Piece of My Heart."

She has performed her own music extensively in Australia and Europe including Sydney Opera House, Perth International Jazz Festival, Melbourne Jazz Festival, Sydney Festival, Sziget Festival in Hungary and JazzAhead in Bremen.

City of Longing was co-written and produced by STU HUNTER. An award winning composer, pianist and producer, Stu Hunter is a prolific and genre-defying musician. He has collaborated or toured with artists including Passenger, silverchair, Portishead, Delta Goodrem, Alex Lloyd, Russell Crowe, Katie Noonan, Darren Hayes, Marcia Hines, Jackie Orszaczky and Sally Seltmann.

He has produced albums for Sarah McLeod, Martha Marlow, Artefact, Wes Carr, Leroy Lee and also Tina Harrod's previous album. Stu's music is described as "intensely emotional and humanely intelligent." His most recent recording and suite "The Migration" won two Jazz Bell Awards and was nominated for the Best Jazz Album ARIA.

The music draws from the deep well of soul and jazz yet is edgy, unusual, definitely innovative. Most of the material was co-written with Stu Hunter. Trophy Girl was written with Dave Symes (Boy & Bear, Sarah Blasko, Missy Higgins, The Sleepy Jackson). The title track City of Longing was written with acclaimed jazz pianist Matt McMahon and Until I Hear from You was written with Aron Ottignon another extraordinary jazz pianist, in Paris.

Tina Harrod: "There are songs about relationships, about turmoil in relationships, another about leaving the city ... but I'm driven by what I see in politics and the way the world is run and the systems that run it."

"Stu & my musical relationship is the real glue in this album because we started it together from the ground up. We wanted a cohesive sound and recorded it with the one rhythm section of Dave Symes (bass), Evan Mannell (drums), Stu (keys) and Cameron Deyell from LA on guitar."
