The Exchange is proud to be hosting singer songwriter of pop, jazz, rock and R&B, Sarah Jane Morris, joined by guitarist ​Tony Rémy, ​drummer Martyn Barker, bassist Henry Thomas, and ​guitarist Tim Cansfield.

“We will be singing the songs of John Martyn from our album ‘Sweet Little Mystery’, which celebrates the genius of the songwriter. We won an Edinburgh award from the festival just before the first lockdown and would have toured this show all over the world, and then the world closed down. We will also perform songs old and new.” – Sarah Jane Morris

“Leave your preconceptions at home,” begins one London critic’s assessment of sensual singer-songwriter Sarah Jane Morris, who straddles rock, blues, jazz and soul with a goosebump-raising four octave range that rumbles from the heels of her size eight shoes to the tips of her flame-red mane.

Famed for her association with the Communards in the mid-80s and infamous for a banned rendition of the classic Me and Mrs Jones, Sarah Jane Morris has always attracted as much attention for her politics as for her soul-driven, seismic voice.

Many solo albums later, pop stardom on the continent, and a diverse set of musical collaborations on record, film and stage, Morris continues to steer her unorthodox career to greater heights.

“Just four days in January 2009 embraced my first hearing of the music from ‘Where It Hurts’, a night at London’s Pizza Express Jazz Club where Sarah Jane was mesmerically performing live (nothing like as regular a privilege for London’s music-lovers as it should be), and Obama’s historic inauguration on 20 January.” — (John Fordham, The Guardian 2009)

“A voice that can excite shivers of passion and delight … Soaring, swooping, sensual and sophisticated, this voice is more than a style, it’s a force of nature… Torch song, soul standard or smoky blues, the message remains constant: human passion with a dazzling voice.” (Neil Spencer, The Observer).

“Those in-the-know rate her as one of the world’s great jazz-soul vocalists of the past twenty years and more.” (Vogue Italia)
