Sarah Kaiser: passion and authenticity. The Berlin native sings her own mixture of jazz, soul and gospel – beyond cliché and with her own personal note. In close interaction with pianist Samuel Jersak, Sarah develops her own songs as well as arrangements of well-known classics: soulful and groovy – from Paul Gerhardt to Stevie Wonder.
Live, the band is completed by Benjamnin Scheufler (drums), Martin Simon (bass) and Olaf Schönborn (saxophones) and convinces with a great feel for both powerful and quiet tones.
