Singer songwriter guitarist poet Sarah Gillespie, terrific live, anarchic, political, hard hitting and a whole lot more... think the playfulness of Camille O’Sullivan meets the earthy bluesiness of Bessie Smith and you are half way there, has quite a band in tow on the Kit Downes-produced Wishbones to be released in early-November by Pastiche Records. Before that, go hear, she plays live at the Purcell Room, London on 29 Oct. The new album band as well as Downes on piano and organ has Dinosaur’s Laura Jurd, the Holdsworthian guitar boffin Chris Montague, James Maddren on drums, Kit’s wife Ruth Goller from Let Spin on bass guitar and the tremendous burlesque talent Emma Divine on back up vocals.
