SADIE JEMMETT returns with her new evocative and politically charged album ‘Phoenix’ who’s first Single ‘Don’t Silence Me’ has already made international news and been hailed as the Anthem of the #MeToo era.
Don’t Silence Me’ comprises part of Sadie’s forthcoming album ‘Phoenix’ which is set to be released in May. The album highlights Sadie’s versatility as an artist and lyricist and shows a new side to this talented musician. The album traverses subject matter as yet untouched by her delicately and yet the tracks still feature her velvety smooth vocals that we are so familiar with. ‘Rescue Street’ shows her sensitivity as a songwriter, and ‘Bitter’ (with its beautifully gentle guitar riff) is a classic heartbreak track with a tender sentiment.
Having attracted the attention of some of the industry’s biggest stars it’s safe to say that Sadie is no stranger to recognition. Yoko Ono included one of Sadie’s tracks on her BBC6 music show 6Mix, and Lou Reed, after hearing Sadie perform in NYC’s East Village, asked to meet her to congratulate her on her songs and performance.
Sadie’s previous album release, ‘The Blacksmith’s Girl’, was released through Judy Collins’s label, whom Sadie met when she opened for her at the London Jazz Café. The album also featured ‘Up On The Heath’, a track produced by Ed Harcourt and featuring Cass Browne of the Gorillaz on percussion. Sadie is now looking to match and exceed the positive reception of her previous musical offerings as she releases the politically motivated and bold track ‘Don’t Silence Me’
Sadie will be playing live at The Green Note with her band, to celebrate the release of Phoenix, with special guests Danni Nicholls and Miranda Mullholland & Tara Minton opening the night.
