Verified profile
Singer-songwriter who's performed in many prestigious venues and been championed by Jamie Cullum, Michael Ball and Jo Whiley at BBC Radio 2.

“There’s some real raw talent here! Expecting big things from her in the future” - the words of Jamie Cullum after hearing 22 year old singer-songwriter and guitarist, Sarah Munro. With a delicate songbird’s voice reminiscent of Eva Cassidy and Katie Melua, Sarah's music has been championed by legendary lyricist Don Black, as well as Jamie Cullum and Michael Ball - both of whom featured her debut single 'For Eternity' on their BBC Radio 2 shows. In 2017, Sarah performed headline sets at Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Cornbury Festival after completing a 24-date UK tour supporting Paul Carrack in prestigious venues, including the London Palladium and Birmingham Symphony Hall. Sarah has recently released her second album 'Angel Road', which features 10 brand-new original songs ranging from contemporary folk to jazz and explores the themes of escapism, loss, dreams and illusion. Following her sold-out headline shows at PizzaExpress Jazz Club, The Pheasantry, The Stables and The Forge, Sarah will be touring venues across the UK throughout 2019, performing songs from her debut album ‘Say Hello To You’ and her latest 'Angel Road', as well as classic covers including 'Over The Rainbow' and 'Autumn Leaves'.

Stunning! Absolutely gorgeous musician. Her voice is incredible. Sarah was so helpful along the way and was able to learn songs at our request for our civil ceremony/wedding. She responds very quickly too. I have heard so many positive things from friends and family. The small amount I heard during the ceremony was perfect. Thank you!

Sarah Came to sing at our Golden Wedding Celelbration on the 23rd March 19. We would highly reccommend her and her singing really made our evening a great success. We were over whelmed by all the positive comments that we received. We wish Sarah all the best in her career. Many thanks Sarah you were brilliant. Margaret & Richard Ottley
