Singer-songwriter Sarah Gillespie's three albums are critically acclaimed for their mix of urban folk, jazz and beat poetry style lyrics. Described by the Guardian’s jazz critic John Fordham as a ‘superior lyricist’ her most recent album 'Glory Days' (produced by Gilad Atzmon) is launched in Jan 2014 on vinyl by 'Those Old Records.'
Sarah’s band features Enzo Zirilli on drums, Ben Bastin on double bass and Kit Downes on piano.
Glory Days Press:-
'Humorous impressionistic lyrics oscillate between the intimate and the infinite’ The Independent ★★★★

'The interplay between her acoustic guitar and Gilad Atzmon’s clarinet sparkles, and the words tumble out unstoppable and direct.' The Financial Times ★★★★
‘Glory Days.. her best mix yet of hooky tunes and smart lyrics'. Mojo ★★★★
'Is she the new Joni Mitchell? PJ Harvey? Bob Dylan even? Glory Days recalls all three in places but Gillespie’s spiky lyrical gift is utterly distinctive.' London METRO
