“Extraordinary Jazz Vocalist” The Arts Show, BBC Radio
Sultry jazz singing sensation
Extensive Jazz Standard Setlist
Singing her own original material and classic jazz standards, Sara has received acclaim from audiences and musicians alike for her vocal agility, compelling stage presence and passionate delivery of each song she interprets.
Born in Essex to Indian and Irish parents, she sang in choirs from an early age and went on to read Music at the University of Cambridge. From classical Choral Scholar to jazz singer is not the great leap that many might imagine – both roles require a love of singing, a thrill at working with other musicians and a desire to explore the boundaries of the human voice. Citing vocal legends Sheila Jordan, Anita O'Day, and Ella Fitzgerald as three of her top inspirations, Sara demonstrates a fresh and rhythmically vibrant approach to improvisation with both text and melody.
Based in London, she regularly performs in the capital, from Soho to the Southbank. She has headlined at jazz venues across Europe, both as a guest soloist and touring with her own groups. Previous events include Glastonbury, Edinburgh and Cambridge Fringe Festival performances, primetime live performance and interview on Estonia’s ETV, a string of Parisian club dates with her quartet, and playing support for renowned artists such as Ruby Turner, Valery Ponomarev, JTQ, Iain Mackenzie.
Sara is available to sing standards with a variety of ensembles, from piano duo to full quintet
Basic Vocal PA suitable for indoor use up to 150 people.
South East based and will travel to these areas: South East, South West, North East, North West, Scotland, Wales, Ireland.
