Reviews

From customers:

Wayne B, 3 years ago

A wonderfully talented young woman, daughter of US bluesman Michael Roach, pianist and vocalist Sadie studied at the Duke Ellington School for the Arts in Washington DC for the last few years, before relocating to UK... Sadie is a beautiful pianist and singer; so much depth and soul in someone so young.

Listed L, 2 years ago

19 year old piano vocalist Sadie is the daughter of US blue legend Michael Roach who produced her first EP, recorded in Gloucestershire. Her modern take on soul, jazz, rhythm and blues will be a great warm up to get you in the mood for the Cheltenham Jazz Festival.
