In 1986 she toured the world with The Communards when their song 'Don't Leave Me This Way' became a worldwide Number One hit.

For some years she fronted the celebrated 21-piece Brechtian big band The Happy End.
Sarah Jane Morris' brand new album Sweet Little Mystery, is now available via the website and at gigs. The album is a joint project between Sarah Jane Morris and long-term collaborator, guitarist Tony Remy. Together they pay homage to the sublime genius of Scottish singer/songwriter John Martyn - a restless, often self-destructive artist whose unique voice and music is both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in its beauty. This year marks 10 years since his tragically early death aged 60.
Sarah Jane Morris is a singer with an astonishing vocal range. Her thirty-year career, during which she has garnered a loyal and loving international audience, has been wide-ranging and her rich contralto voice goes from strength to strength. She has performed with many groups over the years, from rock to soul to African blues, with classical orchestras, a one-hundred cello ensemble, with acoustic guitars and jazz big bands. Her voice, her versatility, and her emotional intelligence - the absolute authenticity of feeling which she conveys - make her a world-class compelling performer.
Sarah Jane Morris
Sarah Jane Morris straddles rock, blues, jazz and soul with a goosebump-raising four octave range that rumbles from the heels of her size 8 shoes to the tips of her flame-red mane. With The Communards, Morris topped the UK charts in 1986 with ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, and has since gained a devoted audience for her live shows. 'A voice that can excite shivers of passion and delight... Soaring, swooping, sensual and sophisticated, this voice is more than a style, it's a force of nature... Torch song, soul standard or smoky blues, the message remains constant: human passion with a dazzling voice' (Neil Spencer, The Observer).
