SARA SO FAR
Sara So Far (1984, The Netherlands) started singing and writing songs as a young child. As she grew up, songs kept coming and it became clear to her that music was to be her life. In 2004 Sara decided to study jazz singing and moved to Brussels to study with David Linx.
For a good number of years Sara So Far has been performing with her band “Sara So Far Quartet” and together they recently recorded the EP “Flirting With The Rooftops”, which was released on CD and in online stores last year. They play mostly in and around Brussels, although at the moment Sara lives in Cyprus with her husband and two children, exploring the island jazz scene. This summer she is doing a concert tour with fellow jazz-musicians in Taiwan.
As a singer, Sara So Far is known for her warm voice with a large tessitura, excellent ear and great improvisational skills. Each concert is totally different from the next. As a composer Sara touches her audience with depth and renewing melodic creativity which form -combined with the harmonies of her pianoplaying and the groove of her band- an altogether refreshing and original sound. When performing without band, she seeks to get the most out of the piano, but also leaves the keys to the side occasionally to present some voice-only repertoire. For those few poets hidden in the audience there is always a lot to mull over, as Sara So Far is mad for poetry and seeks to write lyrics that have the music in them before they are heard.
