Drummer DARREN ALTMAN talked to Rosie Hanley about tonight’s official launch of SARAH ELLEN HUGHES’ second album at Hideaway Live in Streatham:
“Working with Sarah is always a pleasure, whether on live gig or in the studio. For me, she is the complete singer: she writes, arranges, has great time, perfect pitch, is a fantastic improviser and swings like mad! As a drummer that gets asked to play in a wide variety of styles, I love the fact that Sarah is not afraid to cross genres. She embraces all styles of music and is not afraid to mix it up, both in the studio or on gigs. It’s rare that you find a singer that is comfortable on a jazz ballad, burning up-tempo flag-waver, contemporary pop tune or ballsy Blues number! When I gig with Sarah, I know it’s always going to be a creative, fun experience.”
