Book tickets for Sarah L King

Sarah’s debut album, FIRE HORSE is an exciting showcase of her songwriting, composing & vocal talent. Hatched during lock-down, the album project grew into a set of well-crafted & sophisticated songs of a jazz hybrid genre, in which Sarah mixes jazz harmonies with soulful overtones & a singer-songwriter sensibility.

The musical tour de force Claire Martin OBE has produced the album with ECN music, nurturing its production from first hearing Sarah’s demos, bringing top level musicians into the studio that she knew would be of the calibre to show off Sarah’s project to its full potential. The band need little introduction:

Jim Watson, pianist & composer, brings his incredible talent, having recently worked with Sting, Katie Melua, Kurt Elling, Chrissie Hynde, Incognito, Richard Bona, Raul Midon, Zero 7, Incognito, & Meshell Ndegeocello amongst others.

Laurence Cottle, the highly revered bassist, composer, arranger & bandleader, brings his genius, having arranged numerous TV & Film musical scores, and played with Clark Tracey, Jason Rebello, Seal, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Chi Coltrane & Brian Eno, to cite a mere few of his many collaborations.

Luke Tomlinson is one of the most in-demand drummers in London, & has established himself as a professional musician, bandleader & educator. Alongside his jazz career he has a strong foothold in the pop industry, performing with the likes of NYM (Paloma Faith) Paolo Nutini, The 1975, & Jamie Cullum, to name a few.

Sarah’s vocal talent stems from a family heritage of musicians, her father an accomplished jazz trumpeter, her grandmother an orchestral conductor. With a fine ear for harmonies and improvisation, Sarah started singing in jazz & gospel choirs under the guidance of musical director Mike King, (no relation, his collaborations include Mark Ronson, Boy George, Florence Welch),
before swiftly emerging as a solo artist, releasing an EP of standards in 2020 Sarah has always been a communicator, having previously written & directed several awardwinning short films & narratives before her love of music took over all else. Her ability to write and convey ideas, combined with her innate musicality, has resulted in the exciting blend of original songs & standards you hear on FIRE HORSE. An accomplished band leader, Sarah’s popularity is rising as she appears regularly in London jazz venues with her quintet. The launch of this debut album puts her firmly on the map as an artist with an undoubtedly large talent.
