Sarah started singing in soul & gospel choirs before emerging as a solo artist. Having a musical heritage, her father a jazz trumpeter, her grandmother an orchestral conductor, Sarah has a fine ear for harmonies and improvisation. Citing Karen Carpenter and Roberta Flack as early influences, Sarah’s unique phrasing and her ability to imbue an emotional depth to her lyrics have brought her much recent acclaim. 

In 2024 Sarah released her debut album, Fire Horse, produced by Claire Martin OBE, & featuring Jim Watson (p), Ian Thomas (d), Laurence Cottle (eb) & Jeremy Brown (b). Featuring mostly her own compositions, the album has been lauded by critics for Sarah's ‘vocal prowess and formidable songwriting and arranging ability’. Her vocal timbre and songwriting style have been compared to the likes of Rumer, and her music has featured on Jazz FM’s Single Of The Week, as well as BBC Radio 3 Jazz Requests, and Helen Mayhew’s True Brits

Sarah’s previous releases include an EP of jazz standards What’s New? in 2020. An accomplished bandleader, Sarah plays regularly on the London jazz circuit at venues including Piano Smithfield, and Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club. Her recent sold-out album launch gig at Pizza Express Jazz Club Soho has put her firmly on the map as an exciting rising star to look out for. 

'In addition to her vocal prowess, King also stakes a claim as being a formidable song writer and arranger.' 

Nick Lea, Jazz Views

'Sarah King naturally combines the ease and conversational style of jazz with soulful overtones and a musicality that effortlessly engages and connects with her audience.' Mike King musical director MKC
