Anglo-American singer-songwriter Sarah Gillespie has achieved critical acclaim for mixing beat-poetry style lyrics with jazz, folk and Middle Eastern Blues.

Having toured extensively across the UK and Europe with her band, featuring long time collaborator and producer, the maverick saxophonist Gilad Atzmon, Gillespie will be revisiting material from her first two albums as well as showcasing some new songs from her new project The War on Trevor.

“A beat poet adventurer who strays beyond the bounds of singer-songwriter.”Mojo

“Achingly pretty and bittersweet.”– The Independent
