Zara McFarlane on Thursday 22nd February 2018

Zara McFarlane has long been recognised as one of the most talented jazz-inspired singer/songwriters to come out of the UK scene, previous albums have gathered a clutch of awards, drawing from influences as widely ranging as the deep spiritual jazz of Pharoah Sanders to dub and reggae. Her live shows have seen McFarlane and her band create a joint exploration of the meeting points between jazz and the rhythms of Jamaica; reggae, Kumina, calypso and nyabinghi, shaded with hints of the psychedelic.

She returns to a buoyant UK jazz scene with a head-turning third album. Arise, produced by long-time collaborator Moses Boyd, explores the musical possibilities of her British-Jamaican identity, it’s a cultural exchange that’s born of the UK’s current musical climate.

Zara is the previous winner of Best Jazz MOBO Award, Urban Music Award for Best Jazz Act and a Jazz FM Award Vocalist of the Year.

“she's graduated from skilful diffidence to magnetic eloquence and complete ease with an audience” The Guardian
