SARI SCHORR & THE ENGINE ROOM

In January 2015 legendary producer Mike Vernon (Fleetwood Mac, John Mayall, Blue Horizon, etc) was invited to receive a ‘Keeping The Blues Alive’ award at the prestigious International Blues Challenge in Memphis, USA. This award was the first highlight of the weekend for Mike, the second was witnessing the performance of one of the most amazing female blues singers Mike has seen in years – SARI SCHORR.

Mike was so knocked out with Sari that he offered to come out of retirement to produce an album with her. Already a consummate songwriter, with tracks on major labels, Sari has written or co-written most of the songs on her new album. This album recording is now underway.

Several years of touring USA & Europe with Joe Louis Walker & Popa Chubby bands brought Sari greater prominence in the blues world. Sari was recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

Sari’s debut album will be released on Manhaton Records in September 2016 and she will undertake a US and European wide tour. Sari will kick things off in New York at Carnegie Hall, performing with Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon and Walter Trout amongst others on the Lead Belly Fest on February 4th.
