Australian vocalist Jo Lawry has forged an impressive solo career with a global fan base, while earning deep respect as a ‘musician’s singer’ within and beyond jazz circles. She’s also spent nearly a decade performing and recording with Sting and has worked with Paul Simon and Peter Gabriel.

The two albums she released as a singer/songwriter/producer, Taking Picture (2015) and The Bathtub and the Sea (2017) garnered critical acclaim. Now, more than ten years since her last solo jazz album, Lawry presents her new live project and chordless band Acrobats Trio, and album of the same name (Whirlwind Recordings, February 2023), unequivocally returning to the genre alongside globally in-demand bassist Orlando le Fleming and versatile drummer Allison Miller (Linda May Han Oh features on double bass on the album). 

“The innate interconnectivity and trust between the members of this trio is palpable, much like a troupe of acrobats…”
“Acrobats is a playful album embodying both the freedom and exquisite complexity of jazz.” Jazzwise
“…a particular kind of playful, joyful and fearless energy…” London Jazz News
“…like a jolt to the solar plexus. Lawry's glasslike voice perforates any baggage or stuffiness accrued by these tunes.”
