'SAY HELLO TO YOU' Album Review by AP Reviews

Sarah Munro's debut album 'Say Hello To You' (released in September) has been reviewed by contemporary jazz writer Adrian Pallant on his website AP Reviews. Adrian champions album releases from the thriving UK and international contemporary jazz scene.

He described Sarah's style on 'Say Hello To You' as...


"Melding gentle, folksy singer/songwriter pop and jazz"


"...it’s the promise of Munro’s sit-up-and-listen voice, her guitar-playing confidence and her maturity as a songwriter which suggests this is a name destined for success."


Adrian continued to praise Sarah's variety of musical influences and genres throughout the album...


"Ten original tracks – plus an emotional rendition of Johnny Mercer’s Autumn Leaves – reveal the extent of Sarah Munro’s indubitable musicality; and flying in the face of reality TV and quick-fix fame, the control and passion she conveys through her silken voice is consistently magnetic. Opening numbers Say Hello to You and Fool Forever are delivered with impeccable poise and diction (oboe interludes redolent of Mike Batt’s chart hits), and Make It Your Own‘s country guitar is endearing, as is bossa-beat Crazy Game. Dreamily elegant Paint the World offers a hint of nostalgia (even a smidgen of ‘Whispering Grass’) thanks to the purity of Munro’s strings-backed vocal; and the memorable, melodic hooks of Lovebird and Goodbye Mr Moonlight feel effortless."

'Say Hello To You' CD available now on Amazon (see links below).

Sarah supporting Jimmy Webb at The Stables

On Wednesday 21st September, Sarah will be supporting Grammy-winning, American songwriting legend Jimmy Webb at The Stables in Milton Keynes. She will be performing new original material from her debut album 'Say Hello To You', as well as selling signed copies of the album after the show.


Grammy-winning songwriter Jimmy Webb has topped the charts with hits across genres for the last five decades --pop, country and disco-- with songs including MacArthur Park, Up, Up and Away, All I Know, Didn’t We, Highwayman and Worst That Could Happen, and artists ranging from Richard Harris to Frank Sinatra, from Linda Ronstadt to Art Garfunkel. Perhaps the most enduring partnership is his musical brotherhood with Glen Campbell which produced hits Wichita Lineman, By the Time I Get to Phoenix and Galveston-- just for starters.


Jimmy Webb: The Glen Campbell Years celebrates this friendship alongside the 80+ recordings from the Webb / Campbell songbook. With his trademark humour and storytelling, Webb shares anecdotes about his collaborations with Campbell, revealing the personal side to generational touchstones like Honey Come Back. This night will demonstrate the singular talents of these two pop icons and the indelible mark their symbiotic craftsmanship made on music worldwide. Campbell and Webb are Still on the Line.
