Gently (I Want To Sleep At Night) - Sarah Riches
Our next LCM featured artist is Birmingham singer-songwriter Sarah Riches. Sarah released her wonderful debut album, ‘Come Around, in November 2016. The album calls to mind artists and songwriters including Carole King, Dusty Springfield, The Carpenters, Fleetwood Mac, and Burt Bacharach, as well as more recent artists such as Norah Jones, and Rumer. Sarah’s mellow and soothing voice is the perfect accompaniment to the album’s varied and multi-layered instruments, backing vocals, and harmonies. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is a live version of Sarah's latest single 'Gently (I Want To Sleep At Night). We think it is perfect Sunday listening.
Sarah demonstrates versatility in her writing style and vocals. She is also the lead vocalist for band 'Telegraph City' who write with an Americana twist. She has also played various roles in musical theatre across the West Midlands. Her most recent performances were as Woman 1 in Songs for a New World with Night Project Theatre, and as Serena in Fame at Sutton Arts Theatre.
Sarah is currently involved in the development of a brand new musical 'The Stars That Remain' written by her producer Adrian Kimberlin. Sarah will be appearing in the premiere of this new musical in November 2018 in Birmingham at The Old Joint Stock Theatre.
