Sarah Gillespie - Wishbones

Sarah Gillespie - Wishbones

Sarah Gillespie is a critically acclaimed singer songwriter renowned for mixing elements of blues, folk and jazz with her distinctive streetwise lyricism. Sarah was born in London, grew up in Norfolk interspersed with numerous trips to Minnesota, where she soaked in the sounds of Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, Cole Porter and early blues and jazz. As a teenager, Gillespie busked across America, returned to the UK and went on to perform across Europe, the UK and the USA with appearances on BBC Radio 2, 3 and 4 and local stations world-wide. Her three albums 'Stalking Juliet' (2009) 'In the Current Climate' (2011) and 'Glory Days' (2014) were met with four and five star reviews from the Guardian, MOJO, the Independent and Rock and Real. Gillespie's 4th album 'Wishbones' was launched at London's Southbank Centre in October 2018. 'Is she the new Joni Mitchell? PJ Harvey? Bob Dylan even? She recalls all three but Gillespie's spiky lyrical gift is utterly distinctive." Metro - London.
