The story has a fairytale quality. Tina Harrod grew up in a tiny NZ town and arrived in Sydney aged 17 with a suitcase, a few hundred dollars and one incredible voice.
That voice has been the ticket to a wonderful and profound life experience, in which she has discovered her true gift as a songwriter with encouragement and mentoring from her "university" - revered jazz maestro, the late Jackie Orszaczky.
This conversation with Tina Harrod is the first in the new podcast series Rare Air. As well as being a critically acclaimed jazz singer, Tina has sung with some of the best known names on the Australian rock scene.
Thanks to Tina Harrod for agreeing to be the first interview for this series.
The name Rare Air was chosen because these are lesser known stories (and sometimes unknown stories) of humanity, endeavour and passion, told for the first time.
