This autumn, Sara Colman steps into the spotlight with a series of gigs in support of her second solo studio album (to be released on Stoney Lane Records in early 2018). Inspired by her love of classic songwriting and her instinctive improvisational energy the album is a collection of Sara’s original material and features Rebecca Nash (keys), Steve Banks (guitar) and Percy Pursglove (bass & trumpet) and she is very excited to be singing at Green Note for the first time!
Singer-songwriter Sara Colman has enjoyed a successful and prolific career over the last twenty years and along the way has worked with some of the leading lights in British music including Laura Mvula, Liane Carroll and Mahalia.
As a vocalist she has made numerous festival appearances (Cheltenham, Manchester, Mostly Jazz, ReVoice, Sligo) and in 2016 was featured vocalist with The National Youth Jazz Orchestra at the BBC Prom Night at The Royal Albert Hall. She is also one third of the CCB Trio with long time friends and musical partners Liane Carroll and Sophie Bancroft with whom she regularly performs.
“Sara Colman has a rare ability. Not only does she do full justice to the music and lyrics of a song – revealing nuances in the harmony you hadn’t noticed before; finding subtle, hitherto untapped treasures in the lyrics – but she also shares the music with her audience with a deep generosity of spirit. And she does it all with wit, with grace and with wisdom.” – Peter Bacon, Editor-at-Large, LondonJazz News
