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

Sarah Moule - It' a Nice Thought - The Musician


22 August 2002
The Musician
Sue McCreeth

Sarah Moule sings 14 songs by Fran Landesman (Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most ) and Simon Wallace (co-composer various BBC comedy shows including Absolutely Fabulous) with warmth and assurance. What I like most about her style is the way she can sing with incandescent clarity in one phrase and sinful smokiness the next, this being especially effective in the superlative What Fools These Mortals Be. The lyrics are full of realism and the most scrutinous observation of us mortals now, this epitomised by When Your Computer Crashes. There is an absence of moon in June gloss but the musical style is very much in the mainstream tradition.

The recording quality is pure gold and there are delicious solos from Jim Mullen, Steve Waterman, Iain Ballamy, Tim Whitehead and Fayyaz Virji. Tune in My Head is a vocal duet with Ian Shaw featuring impeccably delivered twisting unison lines.
