Cape Town-based multi-instrumentalist, Sarah Blake, creates music that makes you feel. Rooted in jazz, soul, blues, and folk, her quirky, charming, and disarming stage presence pulls you into a magical space, weaving her scat solos and lyrics through threads of harmony. You arrive feeling excited, and leave feeling content and connected to those sharing this experience with you. 

With inspiration from Esperanza Spalding, Lianne La Havas, Norah Jones, Tom Misch, Bruno Major, Emily King, and Cyrille Aimee, she weaves her voice through lyrics and scat solos alike, all the while effortlessly groovin’ on that double bass or guitar.

Growing up in a musical family, she played every Western instrument she could get her hands on. She only found her true love, the upright bass, halfway through her first year at the South African College of Music where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Composition. Since then, she has performed as a side(wo)man for Manouche, Crimson House, Gerald Clark, Frank Paco, and Zolani Mahola, and has toured extensively throughout South Africa, Mozambique, Seychelles, Singapore, and Europe, and America. 

“What can I say about Sarah?

Great, honest talent!

A rare gem that immediately infects any audience with her moody, soulful jazz rock repertoire that leaves us asking and begging for more.

We love her!”

-Guy Chaston, owner of The Coffee Guy
