‘Well-crafted original numbers that are sung flawlessly, and with slick accompaniments.’ BBC Music Magazine

In lyricist Fran Landesman and composer Simon Wallace, Britain has one of the finest songwriting partnerships alive, and Sarah Moule brings their songs to life with wit and understanding.’ The Observer

Moule's purring voice - honeyed in sound, subtle in timing and pitch, shrewd in weighting the music with meaning.’ The Guardian

The singer has a sweet, beguiling voice and a cool delivery, and captures the tone of these songs to perfection.’ Jazzwise


New York born and raised but London-based for many years, Fran Landesman is a genuine beat survivor and a lyricist with a humorous, lightly ironic touch, a deep humanism and flashes of penetrating insight. Songs she wrote with Tommy Wolf in the 1950s, such as 'Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most', went on to become standards. The songs on this album were all written in the last few years and encapsulate the gritty realism of modern life. Full of literate, often witty songs that lend themselves perfectly to Sarah's emotionally direct vocal style, Simon Wallace has been working closely with Fran for around 8 years producing over 300 songs as well as maintaining a busy career as a jazz pianist and composer.

Sarah Moule sings with a combination of gusty swing and sensitivity, bringing to bear her own life experience to sing Fran Landesman's strong words with the self-assurance they require.
