Sara Colman – the captivating singer, songwriter, pianist and composer - is to release her much-anticipated new studio album, What We’re Made Of, this autumn on Stoney Lane Records.
“Sara Colman has a rare ability. Not only does she do full justice to the music and lyrics of a song, 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” - London Jazz News
Inspired by her love of classic song-writing and instinctive improvisational energy, Sara's musical journey brings her jazz sensibility into roots music territory, her poignant originals sitting alongside the folk-tinged worlds of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, to the contemporary jazz, improvisation, folk and Americana of Bill Frisell.
Bristol-born Colman has an infectious natural warmth that flows through her writing and live shows, but retains a knowledge and love of all music that shines through with her incredible artistic integrity and inventiveness. Working over the past year with leading lights in British music - including Laura Mvula, Liane Carroll and Mahalia - her new band features some of the most exciting musicians from the jazz world bringing her original writing very much to life.
Following sparkling summer performances at London’s Kings Place, Symphony Hall Birmingham and the Manchester Jazz Festival, Sara returns with autumn dates in London and Birmingham, with a full album tour in the spring. What We’re Made Of is released on September 28th - the tenth release from Stoney Lane Records.
