Rock-blues force of nature Sari Schorr to premiere new album songs in Newbury

Having headlined festivals across Europe and with a US Billboard chart-topping album under her belt - Sari Schorr is coming to Newbury on April 28 and concert-goers will be the first in the world to hear the premiere of two new tracks from her hugely anticipated new studio album, due for worldwide release this autumn.

This is months ahead of national airplay, magazine reviews and official release on streaming platforms.

Sari’s headline show at Arlington Arts is part of her UK tour, supported by special guest Matt Pearce & the Mutiny. Sari will be resting the standard set from her sold-out European tour and performing a very different set, exclusive to her intimate run of UK headline dates.

This will be he only performances in this country of songs from the Billboard Blues chart-topping Joyful Sky album she recorded with guitar maestro Robin Trower last year.

To mark Magnum’s Lee Morris joining the band, Sari will perform Magnum classic “On A Storytellers Night” for all the UK dates – a tribute to the music genius of the late Tony Clarkin, with a collection at each show to support Tony’s animal welfare fundraiser.

Sari said of her new songs:“My new track ’Hometown Girl’ embodies the timeless essence of blues rock, a song born in 2018 that has evolved through numerous revisions, before finally finding its stride and earning its spot in the setlist.

“‘Highway 69’ weaves some playful lyrics and suggestive undertones into pure rock ‘n’ roll that'll have you tapping your feet and blushing at the same time!”

The UK dates are supported by Planet Rock and Gig Cartel. Sari wants to make her return to the UK different to her other UK tours as a thank you to her longstanding fans.

Sari added: “I live life from my suitcase, living to travel the world to meet people from the great spectrum of cultures and countries. Despite the division and tensions we see covered daily in the news, I’ve found that travelling reminds us of how much we all have in common - we are one human race that share the same hopes and fears.

“Internationally, live music is the ever-enduring glue that unites us all together. It is live music fans that are keeping venues open and new music alive, so it has to be the supporters of local venues that hear my new music first.

“I am so excited to be visiting Newbury on April 28, and I’m thrilled Matt Pearce and his band will join us for a run of magical shows. Together we’ll deliver an unforgettable night of live music. Everyone’s welcome – please join us!”

About Sari Schorr

With a five-octave range and a diverse vocal skill set, Sari Schorr sets herself apart. Born in Queens, New York, working the music scene on Manhattan’s Lower East Side to performing at Carnegie Hall and touring internationally, Sari Schorr directs her passion for music as a timeless force to unify people.

From her travels around the world, Sari sees music and the arts as under attack. Art and culture have always been a beacon of freedom and a unifying element of society. Music empowers and unites, accepts difference and values individualism.

Along Sari’s journey, some life experiences - considered to be as debilitating as they are heart breaking - have only accentuated her aura of genuine, raw resilience and strength. A first responder in the 9/11 attacks; a volunteer aid worker after the earthquake in Haiti - and thrown into a car trunk and kidnapped in China. Despite such pain, Sari only sees silver linings in everything she has seen throughout her life. Sari does not indulge in artificial success, glorification or meaningless lyrics. Sari paves the way for a vision of unity made possible with a shared love for music, holding a mirror to the world to say we are all one people. People are kind, people are compassionate. Hate drives discrimination - we cannot think creatively when we are under the guise of fear.

Throughout her career as a musician, Sari has been told to ‘shut up and sing’ when speaking out on crisis or relevant societal topics such as gun control, racism and equality. Such irony can be drawn from this because Sari’s lyrics are entrenched in global issues and a passion that resonates with audiences of all cultures and geographies. No line is random and no words are empty in the music she writes; speaking on behalf of the people and standing tall as a voice for those who are silenced. Topics like self-empowerment, standing up to hatred, taking chances and embracing life, loneliness, forgiveness. Sari writes of the psychological warp of domestic/sexual abuse survival, and speaks on behalf of people being treated unjustly; those who are disenfranchised and don’t have a voice.
