Joe Hurworth - Higher
Joe Hurworth Higher Independent

In the spring of 2018, “Single Day” from Joe Hurworth’s debut EP Creativity hit #1 on the Smoothjazz.com Listener Chart – an extraordinary achievement for a new artist. Fusing old school pop/soul influences like Michael McDonald and Marvin Gaye with contemporary greats like Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran, the 23-year old UK singer-songwriter finds the perfect way to keep that momentum going with his marvelously uplifting new single “Higher.” Highlighted by a plucky bass groove and feisty saxophone accents, it’s an instantly infectious, eminently danceable, horn-drenched tune fusing pop, soul and contemporary jazz. While on one level, it’s a lighthearted party song, a few listens reveal an artist continuing to discover his unique voice and develop a meaningful musical vision.
