Communards hit-maker, jazz crooner, Brechtian big band crooner – and an octave-leaping voice brimming with drama and passion.

‘There’s no hiding place at a Sarah Jane Morris gig – either from her opulent, multi-octave voice and raw emotional clout recalling Nina Simone and Janis Joplin, or from lyrics that explore love and pain, sex crimes, war crimes, Catholicism and contraception – and a whole uncompromising bunch more.’ – THE GUARDIAN.

Sarah-Jane Morris is the British soul, jazz and r&b singer who topped the UK pop charts with The Communards’ disco version of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way and then eloquently and joyously sidestepped the mainstream ever after. Her magnificent soul voice and emotional power would have brought multiple Grammy awards and celebrity status to most singers with her charisma and drive.

‘Morris does not interpret soul. She is soul, with all its passion and pain, joy and sorrow, hard times and highs.’ – THE TIMES.
