Saramai & The Swords
Yet to release a recording Saramai was listed in 2UI Bestow's top 50 releases this year on the basis of a rough demo which bodes very well for her debut release later this year.
Hereto Saramai has been focused on songwriting and playing live, gathering momentum and experience by opening for the likes of Jack L, Grada, Declan O'Rourke, Fionn Regan, Ruthie Foster, Luka Bloom, Kila, Eugene Donegan, Little Palace, The Lost Brothers, and Meteor nominee Valerie Francis, to mention but a few, in venues all around the country from Whelans to The Nerve Centre, both solo and with her band The Swords.
Although comparisons to Kate Bush and Tori Amos have been drawn, Saramai has a distinct playing, singing and songwriting style that is difficult to catagorise. There are classical twists (having trained classically in both piano and singing from a young age) and hints of darkness throughout unusually structured songs.
The next few months will see Saramai in the studio finally with the release of her debut later this year. Watch this space....
