Sarah Jane Morris is an accomplished writer, composer and performer. Famed for her association with the Communards in the mid-80s she has always attracted as much attention for her politics as for her soul-driven, seismic voice. Twelve solo albums later, pop stardom on the continent, and a diverse set of musical collaborations on record, film and stage, Morris continues to steer her unorthodox career to greater heights.
She regularly plays and collaborate with Dominic Miller (Sting), Tony Remy (Annie Lenox), Martyn Barker (Alain Bashung, Marianne Faithful), Marc Ribot (Tom Waits), Ian Shaw, Antonio Forcione, etc.
In 2008 Sarah Jane played Mere Ubu at Queen Elizabeth Hall to David Thomas’s Pere Ubu in the opera “Bring me the head of Ubu Roi”.
Sarah Jane recently recorded an album with 14 cellos in Rome, as a collaboration with Enrico Melozzi, performed in Novembre 2012 at the Purcell Room, South Bank Centre.
