2018 saw Sara Colman stepping into the spotlight with a series of show dates in support of her third solo studio album What We’re Made Of. Inspired by her love of classic song writing and her instinctive improvisational energy, the album is a collection of Sara’s original material. The title track, which won the Jazz and Blues category of the UK Song writing Competition.
This year has brought Sara some interesting opportunities. Being commissioned by The Canales Project (US) to write a song celebrating the life of Sakena Yacoobi (Afghan Activist for children and women rights) was an enormous honour and the song was premiered in Washington in May 2019. She is Recording-Artist-in-Residence at The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The residency kicked off with a recording session at Real World Studios, recording six Joni Mitchell to celebrate Joni’s 75th birthday. Her band consist of musicians of the highest quality and stars in their own right which, no doubt, is why the band is on of only six bands exceptional quality to be selected by Jazz South.
