“SARI SCHORR is a force of nature, a meteor, a comet. The blues speak through her. The real dirty sad funny wonderful blues, lives again! She’s got an amazing voice and sings with fire and grace. Go see her, and hear the living blues again, for the very first time.” – Dan Cohen
Welcome, folks, to Janis Joplin meets Tina Turner, all blustery vocals and emotionally-charged performances, a red-hot blues mama who rconnects with and inspires her audiences, leaving a lasting impression that’s larger than life itself.
Coming to light after several years of US/Europe touring with blues legend, Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist, Popa Chubby and now inducted in to the New York Blues Hall of Fame.
At times with her dark version of Black Betty, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds come to mind, Elkie Brooks at other times. And she can REALLY let go and rock as good as anyone with her take on Zeppelin…
Sari Schorr’s Manhaton Records debut, A Force of Nature, has been described as, “A hailstorm of an album sure to go down in blues history” by Blues Rock Review. Maximum Volume Music has given the album a 10/10 and exclaims, “The quality of the record frequently touches jaw-dropping. Sari Schorr & the Engine Room have just made one of the blues records of the year.”
A Force of Nature is produced by iconic blues pioneer Mike Vernon, whose credits include Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall & the Blues Breakers, David Bowie, Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Christine McVie and Ten Years After. The critically acclaimed album features her stunning guitarists Innes Sibun (ex Robert Plant), Walter Trout, Oli Brown (RavenEye) and keyboardist John Baggott (Massive Attack, Portishead).
Sari’s new band, The Engine Room, features stunning British guitarist Innes Sibun (former Robert Plant guitarist). “The Engine Room truly is a remarkable band,” says Sari. “Something magical happens when we’re on stage together. We’re fuelled further by the audiences’ reaction and everything’s possible. I love touring and enjoy the privilege of meeting so many like-minded people who share our love of the Blues.”
