Sarah Close On Tour

RELEASED earlier this year's Sarah Close's debut EP 'Caught Up' represented the perfect calling card for this expressive singer's smart take on modern pop. It also provided the foundations for bigger things ahead as it went to #1 on the Official Physical Singles Chart while its lead track 'Call Me Out' soon reached 3.3 million streams at Spotify.  Now Sarah Close builds on her recent momentum by sharing the brand new track 'Only You'. Demonstrating the dynamic and intuitive song writing talent that'll push her to the brink of stardom, 'Only You' was written during a period in which Sarah experienced a crisis of confidence, and it's a great example of her intimate, but open lyricism.  Sarah said that:- "It's about that decision when you realise you're going to leave someone you're with. You know that it's not working and the reason it's not working is that you don't like each other. On paper you're right for each other, but it can't work, and even if it could work you're not ready for it. And that's a painful thing to admit to yourself."

Emerging from a small village on the Isle of Wight, Sarah grew up physically separated not just from the mainland; and the music industry; by a body of water, but also from most of the island's social life. A she immersed herself in music she couldn't immediately find an outlet for her passion. Instead she started a YouTube channel to build a connection that she couldn't make in person.  Her following sprinted through numerous landmark statistics and she now commands a following of over 750,000 subscribers.  Local gigs soon followed, including Bestival founder Rob Da Bank's Quay Arts Club night as well as a set at Bestival itself, before Sarah relocated to London. Sarah's 1st major London gig followed in April with a sold out show at The Camden Assembly. Now she's set for her 1st full tour which includes a much larger London show at Heaven as well as a homecoming show in Newport on the Isle of Wight.

The dates for tour are as follows:-

► 23 September 2017 – Nottingham, Bodega (SOLD OUT)
