Through music, Sarah L King likes to tell stories. Whether it’s one of her own well crafted soulful compositions, or an interpretation of a classic jazz standard, Sarah gets underneath the lyrics to convey their truth, with an effortlessly elegant phrasing that shows an innate understanding of the musicality of the song. Sarah has always delved deeply to express her creative abilities, arriving at her true passion of jazz vocals and composing after working extensively in film, writing and directing short films and longer narratives, always expressing her quirky left field artistic tendencies & telling authentic stories that resonate with their audience.
At ease on stage, Sarah naturally gravitates to the spotlight as a performer, having come from a family heritage of musicians and dancers. Her father an accomplished jazz trumpeter, her Grandmother an orchestral conductor, her Aunt the head of a ballet school, to cite a few. Throughout Sarah’s childhood she absorbed many musical influences that have shaped her as a musician and a singer-songwriter today. Sarah started her singing journey in jazz & gospel choirs most notably under the guidance of esteemed Musical Director Mike King (no relation!), where she could apply her ability to harmonise and improvise, before swiftly emerging as a solo artist. An accomplished band leader, Sarah appears regularly in London jazz venues with her quartet, selling-out shows and captivating her audiences.
2023 is a very exciting year as Sarah is in production of her much anticipated debut album of original material & jazz standards, produced by Claire Martin OBE, & ECN Music. Watch this space!
