Manchester has produced some of the worlds most outstanding bands over the years and Sara is following in their musical footsteps.
While recording The Strokes album Room on Fire in NY, Strokes producer, Gordon Raphael heard Saras version of the Janis Joplin track, Piece of my Heart, got in touch and has been one of Saras biggest supporters and producer ever since. Saras debut EP was recorded when she was 16.
The Bang Bang Club (inspired by the group of photographers working in South Africa during the apartheid civil war) formed in October 2005.
A recent presence on myspace.com has widened the bands fan base, not only in the UK and USA but to people all over the world with thousands of fans all playing and downloading the music, supporting the band and creating a buzz which is reflected at the gigs the band play.
The video for Sad and Gone is currently being played in campuses across the States through Ruckus. Independent American & British radio stations and clubs regularly select the bands tracks for their play lists/club nights. The British Tourist Board in America selected Sara and the band as one of the new rising artists to promote the UK to America on their Visit Britain Rocks website and the BBC have selected Saras video for Sad & Gone to show on their big screen in Manchester City centre this spring/summer. NME short listed the band as one of the top unsigned UK bands on its website
