Sarah Moule Sarah Moule

In the past few years singer Sarah Moule has established a reputation as one of Britain's most exciting jazz vocal talents. Her latest CD is 'Songs From The Floating World' (Red Ram Records 2014, HDTracks.com High Def Download May 2015).

Sarah's previous recordings include three acclaimed CDs, 'A Lazy Kind Of Love' (Red Ram Records 2008), Something's Gotta Give (Linn Records 2004) andIt's A Nice Thought (Linn Records, 2002).

She has introduced 35 new songs by American Beat Generation lyricist Fran Landesman and British composer/pianist Simon Wallace (to whom Sarah is married).

Born into a large catholic family on the south coast of England, after university Sarah soon traded the refined atmosphere of Bloomsbury publishers Jonathan Cape for extensive travels in numerous steamy tropical locations. On returning to London in the early 1990s she met jazz singer Claire Martin who introduced her to pianist and composer Simon Wallace who had himself recently returned to London after several years writing for the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra and touring with the equally steamy Lindsay Kemp Company.

“As soon as Simon played me the songs he'd been writing with Fran I knew I wanted to sing them. They really touched me, musically and lyrically, as they seemed to be about how we live today and the emotional conflicts we all have to deal with. I immediately started singing them on the gigs I was doing in Soho and haven't stopped since. I've always felt that it's important to include new repertoire in what I'm doing and mix up a wide range of musical influences, as well as taking inspiration from the past, because I want the music I'm doing to be forward looking.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
