British singer-songwriter Sadie Jemmett returns to the live stage with an autumn tour of the UK that kicks off in Cambridge with a date at The Junction on 30 October.

Sadie relocated to France at the end of 2020, where she is now a resident and has been working on renovating her house and writing music for theatre and film.

Earlier this month she played a headline slot at the Footsbarn arts festival in France, where she also guested on a song with Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard. Along with Rónán Ó Snodaigh on bodhrán, Sadie sang her version of the folk classic Silver Dagger.

During lockdown Sadie was amongst the first artists to embrace livestreaming with a successful series of ‘Home Alone’ sessions on Facebook and Instagram that culminated in a ‘Lockdown Live’ album that Sadie self-produced and released on cassette as a thank you to friends and fans who supported her while venues remained closed.

Like many, Sadie was appalled by the news of the brutal murder of George Floyd in the US, and was quick to respond with a protest song ‘The Killing of George Floyd’, which was written and recorded over three days in June 2020 and released on TwoUpTwoDown Records in solidarity with the many protests around the world that this terrible event provoked.

Just before the pandemic hit the UK, Sadie released the single ‘Rescue Street’ from her last album Phoenix. The video was filmed in Brighton and featured TV and Stage actor Jason Hughes.

She is excited to be back playing live, not least because she will be joined on stage by her Phoenix band – Ian Cuthbert (piano); Mark Sykes (bass) and Andy Phillips (drums) - for some of the shows.

The band was set to go out on the road with Sadie in early 2020 but the tour had to be postponed – and now they all can’t wait to play live again.

Sadie said: “I can't wait to get back on the road! I feel for so many of my fellow musicians and performers, for many of us it has been our main source of income. It's been a tough couple of years, but now it's time to get out there and make some noise! Let's keep music live and the venues open!”

Sadie will play a couple of shows with her friend and fellow singer-songwriter Danni Nicholls and she will also be supported on some of the dates by Americana/Folk trio My Girl The River.

Sadie Jemmett’s extraordinary songs reflect a remarkable life, from a wildly bohemian childhood and teenage runaway to her role today as one of the most original singer-songwriters to excite our ears in many years.

Sadie’s latest album Phoenix was released June 2019 on TwoUpTwoDown Records/Absolute Universal and produced and recorded by Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, The Waylin’ Jennys) on Vancouver Island, Canada.

‘Don’t Silence Me’, the critically acclaimed single and music video from the album has already made international headline news on both CBS and the BBC and has been hailed as ‘A powerful anthem for the #metoo movement ‘ .

Sadie’s was first discovered and mentored by legendary folk singer Judy Collins, who immediately signed her to her New York based label Wildflower Records.

Her first album,‘The Blacksmith’s Girl’, was mixed and produced in Los Angeles by Grammy winner David Bianco (Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash). The album was released in autumn 2011 to critical acclaim. Sadie then played support for Judy on a major tour of the UK
