Duo with Sara Colman
The beauty, intimacy and creativity of the duo comes to the fore in this exquisite combination of singer Sara Colman and pianist Rebecca Nash.
Their long-standing relationship has honed a musical intuition that produces the misleadingly easy sounding but musically adventurous story telling of all good singer-musician relationships.
During the summer of 2020, when the world was turned upside down, they took up residence in a house in the forest for ten days with only each other and some chickens for company and set about writing music. Centred around a song they wrote together called Ribbons, this collection of new works and arrangements celebrates the joy of musical partnership, of friendship and collaboration.
Built on a foundation of jazz, their songs straddle singer-songwriter, folk and classical music with glimpses of early influences such as Joni Mitchell and British jazz pianist John Taylor. The Night Traveller is a dark re-imagining of the classic standard Never Will I Marry, Noble Heart, a soulful search for ancient truth and Turning Over Stones, a modern tale of being torn between two choices: knowledge or ignorance.
“Here I go again in search of beauty elusive, my spirit demands this – impossible!
Always lessons learned and wisdom earned, Confessions worn like ribbons”
