Here's suggestion for ya! I'm planning a radio programme which will deal with the topic of The Room At The Top.

If I can get few people to join me on air on Lanky Beat 'Live' on I think we can make a good job of it. Also if you can put the word out to others who might be interested... then all the better. Ta! “Bill

Sari Schorr & The Engine Room
Date: 20th January 2018
Details:  “A Force of Nature” the debut album from one of today’s most exciting blues-rock singers, was produced by the legendary Mike Vernon, whose credits include Fleetwood Mac, The Blues Breakers, Savoy Brown, Chicken Shack, Eric Clapton and Peter Green. In 2015, while in Memphis, Tennessee, to receive The Blues Foundation’s Keeping the Blues Alive Award. Vernon witnessed a performance by Schorr and was so knocked out that he came out of semi-retirement to produce her.

Already a consummate songwriter in her own right, with tracks on major labels, Sari wrote or co-wrote almost all the songs on the album. The album features the stunning blues guitarist Innes Sibun (formerly of Robert Plant’s band), who is the driving force behind Sari’s new band, The Engine Room. The album also features the incomparable Walter Trout, performing his great song “Work No More”

Schorr gained prominence in the blues world through tours with blues legend Joe Louis Walker and renowned guitarist Popa Chubby, and was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

“During her performances her vocal range and delivery are a compelling combination that just holds your attention right from the start, casting a spell over the audience that is incredible to witness.” – Blues Matters

“Schorr is undoubtedly a find, writing strong songs in a range of styles, with interesting lyrics. Vocally she has the goods to do justice to that range too, with a bluesy voice that can deliver both power and delicacy. The partnership with Innes Sibun is a winner too.” – Blues Enthused
