Sarah Gillespie

“Brilliant, the bee’s knees.” Robert Wyatt

“Gillespie’s spiky lyrical gift is utterly distinctive.” The Metro, July 2013


Sarah Gillespie‘s music is a fusion of jazz, folk and blues knitted together by poetic, streetwise lyricism. The Guardian’s jazz critique John Fordham describes Gillespie as “(joining) Bob Dylan’s lyrical bite and languid delivery to the forthrightness of Joni Mitchell, with a little rap-like percussiveness thrown in, she is an original.”

Sarah’s band features Enzo Zirilli on drums, Ben Bastin on double bass and Kit Downes on piano.
