Singer Zara McFarlane is one of London’s major jazz talents. ‘McFarlane has a pop sensibility and her songs are based around strong melodies’ (Uncut).
Zara McFarlane is one of the most remarkable rising stars in British soul jazz. The singer from London, who was raised in a Jamaican family, has been compared to Erykah Badu en Cassandra Wilson. She has a pure voice and a unique, contemporary style combining soul, jazz, dub and afro funk. The intimate vocals of Nina Simone and the enchanting seventies-jazz of Pharoah Sanders are important influences on Zara’s songs.
