'Her voice has all the qualities that you find in the great singers' - Guy Barker


'Rarely does a jazz singer grace our scene with such breathtaking authenticity and natural flair. Dowling is this thing' - Ian Shaw


Sara Dowling won 'best vocalist' in the 2019 British Jazz Awards and often guests with Ronnie Scott’s All Stars. A major talent, she is consistently praised for her beautifully resonant tone and great flexibility. Sara's distinctive voice owes much to her Palestinian and Irish heritage, a childhood shaped by her father's jazz records and the chant of Lebanese singers. Sara's album From Shadows Into Light received a five star review from Jazz Journal and was described by Mojo magazine as 'enigmatic, beguiling and intensely musical’.


Sara has shared the stage with Ian Shaw, Jason Rebello, Bruce Barth, Terell Stafford and toured in Italy with pianist Andrea Pozza. She has performed in some of the UK’s most prestigious jazz venues and festivals as well as headlining festivals in Italy, Spain, France, Bahrain and Hungary. Citing Betty Carter and Sarah Vaughan as her most important influences, she offers a vibrant fusion of nostalgic classical harmonies and intense American post-bop rhythms of the late 1960s.
