A new stunning live album by Sari Schorr released alongside an extensive European tour in March & April 2020, visiting 8 different countries. The new live album, recorded in venues as far apart as Rapperswill in Switzer-land and Suffolk in England, features tracks from Sari’s first two albums, alongside a stonking version of ‘I Just Wanna Make Love To You’ and some previously unreleased acoustic tracks, recorded for the BBC in the UK. All songs have been superbly recorded and clearly demonstrate Sari songs are full of tension and traction and her dynamic presence is a mixture of controlled burning and ever-growing passion.
Sari Schorr initially gained prominence throughout the blues world after several years of touring the US and Europe with Blues legend, Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist, Popa Chubby. Schorr was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame. Since the release of her first album Sari’s career has continued on a constantly upward trajectory. She has appeared on the Conan O’Brian Show, played Carnegie Hall in New York, has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Sari has played major European festivals, such as Montreaux Jazz Festival, Blue Balls in Switzerland, Notodden in Norway, Guitar En Scene in France as well as Ottowa Blues Festival in Canada.
If you are looking for a modern-day soul & blues heroine who has Tina Turner’s fiery skill, energy, and sensuality combined with Carly Simon’s successful song-writing and wild sweetness, you’ve come to the right place. Sari Schorr is the real damn deal.
I joyfully traveled the length and breadth of Europe during 2019, playing with inspiring musicians to wonderfully receptive audiences. We’ve picked highlights from shows in London, Hampshire and St. Gallen, Switzerland, plus a couple of acoustic gems from a session for the BBC. The talented musicians on board for these shows were Ash Wilson, Mat Beable, Roy Martin, Bob Fridzema, Stevie Watts, Martin ‘Magic” Johnson and Steve Wright. I hope these recordings convey the fun and excitement we felt as we hit the stage each night with our hearts on our sleeves.
“A jaw-dropping voice and a live show that erupts like a volcano! The future of blues rock is in good hands. Sari is a gift to all of us from the Blues Gods!” – Blues in Britain
