Sari Schorr and The Engine Room

Sari has just released her new album 'A Force of Nature' September 2nd "The quality of the record frequently touches jaw-dropping. Sari Schorr & the Engine Room have just made one of the blues records of the year” Maximum Volume Music

Sari has appeared on the Conan O'Brian show, and has toured throughout the US, Europe, Asia and Australia. She has received critical acclaim for her blustery vocals and emotionally-charged performances, and has been described as a modern-day hybrid of Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.

She took the international blues scene by storm as the powerhouse lead vocalist for Blues Hall of Fame guitarist, Joe Louis Walker. Sari has appeared on the Conan O'Brian show, and has toured throughout the US, Europe, Asia and Australia. She has received critical acclaim for her blustery vocals and emotionally-charged performances, and has been described as a modern-day hybrid of Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.

In January 2015 legendary producer Mike Vernon (Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall, Blue Horizon) was invited to receive a ‘Keeping The Blues Alive’ award at the prestigious International Blues Challenge in Memphis USA. This award, was not the only highlight of the weekend for Mike, the second was witnessing the performance of one of the most amazing female blues singers Mike has seen in years – SARI SCHORR.

Mike was so knocked out with Sari that he offered to come out of retirement and produce an album with her. Already a consummate songwriter, with tracks on major labels, Sari has written or co-written most of the songs on her new album. This album recording is now well underway.

Several years of touring the USA & Europe with Joe Louis Walker and Poppa Chubby brought Sari greater prominence in the blues world. Sari was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

Sari has now put together her own band – THE ENGINE ROOM. The Engine Room Band Members: Innes Sibun (guitar) - Robert Plant Anders Olinder (keys) - Glenn Hughes, PP Arnold, Peter Gabriel (sessions) Sean O'Rourke (drums) - Mother’s Finest, The Derek Trucks Band, and Aquarium Rescue Unit Kevin Jefferies - Roger Taylor (with Jeff Beck), Mike Oldfield and Steve Harley
