Sarah Brindell

Sarah began dancing at 3, playing keys at 5 and singing in high school. Now a professional singer, songwriter, arranger, and producer, Sarah Brindell continues to perform a melodious blend of Soul, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Reggae, Pop and R&B that captivates audiences around the world.

The Boston Globe called her  "…a throw back to the days of Billie Holiday when the music was metaphor for turmoil and trouble but sounded like honey…Brindell's voice acts as salve to comfort…raw sexual energy dressed up in retro-rhythm and a honey-warm voice can't disguise the core – pure seduction."
