AUSTRALIAN JAZZ AND BLUES CHANTEUSE DEBUTS IN LONDON.
Daughter of a former London cabbie from Tooting and mother from Putney, Australian-born singer/songwriter Sarah Collyer has long dreamt of returning to her ancestral stomping ground to sing for her supper.
This July will see those dreams come true, as Sarah takes to the stage on July 5th at Map Studio Café for her debut London show.
Supported by her swinging band of jazz musicians, Sarah will take audiences on a journey through her soulful blues originals and her slinky interpretations of not-so-jazz-standards such as Blondie’s “Call Me”, Australian Crawl’s “Reckless” and Paul Kelly’s “Dumb things”.
Sarah will be performing songs from her 2012 Album Yesterday’s Blues and her 2009 EP This Way. Both are currently enjoying distribution throughout Australia and Japan and airplay in cafes and bars throughout Australia.
“Collyer herself is both emotive and pitch-perfect, her seductive vocals effortlessly handling everything from swing to bossa nova...Making everything from Paul Kelly’s Dumb Things to Frank Sinatra vehicle In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning her own, Collyer proves both a master of interpretation and songwriting.” Matt Thrower – Rave Magazine May 15 2012
