Voted Best Vocalist in the British Jazz Awards 2019, Sara Dowling is gaining fame as one of the most talented jazz singers in the UK. With Palestinian and Irish heritage, she first trained as a cellist at Chetham’s and the RNCM, before emerging as a powerful and expressive jazz vocalist and composer. Her most important influences are Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan.
Although her vocal approach is steeped in the jazz idiom and its repertoire, Sara is now coming forth with her own original sound that resonates in her compositions as well as her unique approach to standards.

Sara Dowling – Por Toda A Minha Vita


The fabulous fearlessness with which she approaches the act of singing, the burning conviction, the irresistible communicative power and jaw-dropping musicality she brings to it makes Sara one of the UK’s leading Jazz vocalists.

Upcoming Concerts

Sara has released two albums under her own name, From Shadows Into Light and Two Sides Of Sara. She is currently working on the production and release of her third album as a leader, titled ‘Right Now‘. Focused on original compositions and arrangements, ‘Right Now‘ features some of Europe’s finest musicians (Ross Stanley on piano, Dario Di Lecce on bass and Steve Brown on drums) and it will be released in 2022.
