Blues and smoke and beauty infuse the deliciously matched vocals of Sadie and Jay. They lead us on a dance through heartache, hope and happiness with inviting choruses and neatly understated double bass and guitar, their warm personalities drawing us into a show that feels intimate.

This duo could sing the songbirds down from the trees. Sadie has a truly beautiful voice and can make any style her own; blues, folk, jazz, country, world. Jay’s voice has a lovely rich tone that is equally pleasing to hear. The real magic happens when they sing together, the harmonies are glorious. Instrument-wise they are no slouches either, great finger picking on guitar and bouzouki from Jay and Sadie plays bass, a little percussion and keys. Their mix of uplifting original songs and eclectic covers really hits the spot for me.

Sadie and Jay can sing. I mean really sing. Their voices blend beautifully too – like a brother and sister (but they’re not). You don’t necessarily get that when you sing. You can sing for years with someone and never get it . They can play too - tasteful settings for the songs which engage without intruding. They’re great live performers and guess what … they’re proving of late they can write great songs as well. If there is something not to enjoy and relish about this musical project, it eludes me.
