Sara Dowling has been nominated by the British Jazz Awards as one of the 5 top jazz vocalists of 2018. Since her performance at the Swanage Jazz Festival in 2018, she has been unstoppable. Deeply inspired by the repertoire of the classic American songbook, her most important influences are Sarah Vaughan and Betty Carter. And yet, as the clubs who have been booking her regularly in and over the past couple of years – Ronnie Scott’s, the 606 and the Cinnamon Club – have spotted, there really is something different, special and fresh about her. Sara is joined by Ross Stanley on piano, Dario Di Lecce on bass and Steve Brown on drums.
“Sara is now a real force of nature within UK jazz with surely a great future ahead of her” – Jazz Views
“Her voice has all the qualities that you find in the great singers.” – Guy Barker
“Rarely does a jazz singer grace our scene with such breathtaking authenticity and natural flair. Dowling is this thing.” – Ian Shaw
