Biography of Sarah Gillespie

Drawing inspiration from the 1950 s union of beat poetry and be-bop, the collaboration between singer/songwriter Sarah Gillespie and internationally renowned saxophonist/composer Gilad Atzmon, has evolved into a unique mix of urban-folk, electronica, middle-eastern blues and jazz lyricism. Her debut album Stalking Juliet lead one reviewer to comment that her songwriting had a sophistication that Cole Porter would have recognized and In the Current Climate shows once again what a talented songwriter she is. Gillespie uses both language and voice as an instrument, intuitively combining rhythms, echoes, themes and meanings in a style that owes more to TS Elliot and ee cummings than it does to the female singer-songwriter genre. References to uranium enrichment, extraordinary rendition and the Chinese stock exchange collide with Old Testament fables, Greek myth, colloquial chatter and witty sketches of love, loss and calamity. Gillespie eschews the trappings of many female vocalists, delivering her songs with a passion and tour de force that is utterly compelling. With a formidable jazz trio featuring Atzmon on clarinet, accordion and soprano sax, Enzo Zirilli on drums and Ben Bastin on double bass, In the Current Climate is a more raw and acoustic album that its predecessor, Stalking Juliet, with Atzmon s innovative production placing Gillespie s deft finger picking guitar at the forefront.
