Sarah-Jane Morris is the British soul, jazz and r&b singer who topped the UK pop charts for a month in 1986 (with The Communards’ disco version of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’) and then eloquently and joyously sidestepped the mainstream ever after. Morris’s magnificent soul voice and emotional power would have brought multiple Grammy awards and celebrity status to most singers with her charisma and drive. But for over 25 years of a unique career,  Morris has steered by her own star, not the music industry’s, and that independence has brought her a devoted audience, inspired by her belief in the power of song to change hearts and minds.

Sarah Jane is doing a series of intimate concerts accompanied by the virtuoso guitarists Tony Remy and Tim Cansfield to promote “Bloody Rain” and her forthcoming tribute to John Martyn “Sweet Little Mystery”.  Martyn’s music influenced a generation of his peers, friends and fans alike. His contribution continues to resonate many years after his passing.  Sarah Jane Morris, through her own brilliant interpretive vocal talents, has picked up this torch to shine a light on this great musical maverick, illuminating his life’s work, in her inspirational new show.

Tony Remy is one of the world’s most exciting guitar players of any genre. His hard-edged rhythmically driven approach is enriched with jazz intuition and bluesy soul. Live on stage, his relentless invention and incredible raw energy can set the crowd on fire. He has toured and recorded with a wide range of muscians which include Courtney Pine, Jason Rebello, Jean Toussaint, Gary Barlow, Simply Red, US3, Pee Wee Ellis, Connor Reeves, Annie Lennox, Craig David, Icognito, M-People and many more.

Tim Cansfield was born in Trinidad. A self-taught musician, this enigmatic and self-effacing genius is the first choice of many recording artists, including Bee Gees, Steve Winwood, Elton John, Heaven 17, Billy Preston, Chaka Khan, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Seal amongst others.
