Others, like Sara Lowes, are something far beyond either simple category: aural visionaries – who are as much about scoring, production and arranging as they are about singing their own tunes. She’s always been a woman in demand; however these days, Manchester-based songwriter and musician Sara Lowes is dictating that adoration on her own sweet terms. A long-established session musician, Sara’s talents have crossed many a musical path playing for bands and artists such as The Earlies, King Creosote, Daniel Johnston and Marina And The Diamonds, to name but a few. Garnering comparisons to the sass of Debbie Harry and the airy vocals of Alison Goldfrapp, Lowes’ songs bubble with everything from the primordial soup of Technicolor pop to acoustic folk, through jazz, and kaleidoscopic prog. Lowes is an artist plying her craft for the long-haul, clearly harbouring ambitions of a different kind. ‘I’ve alway seen myself as a musician rather than a solo artists of any kind,’ says Lowes. ‘It leaves the door open for anything to happen – therefore my ambition grows naturally and I trust the choices I make.’ A favourite among BBC 6 Music DJs such as Marc Riley and Stuart Maconie, Lowes’ solo releases to date have received rave reviews from the press, noting her skill for fusing classic influences through thoroughly modern composition and production, emerging as a true genre-defying talent and one to watch. ‘With a voice somewhere between Alison Goldfrapp and Joni Mitchell, and songs that veer between folk, Brill Building pop and Dexys Midnight Runners-esque soul, Sara Lowes is a curious proposition’ – Q, 4*...

LINKWOOD, Dave Owen & Asher Jones...

Friday 26 Sept. 11pm To celebrate our first birthday, Sauce presents the infamously elusive Linkwood, performing an exclusive 3hr DJ set ahead of his new album on Firecracker due out at the end of summer.  Nick Moore, DJ and producer AKA Linkwood is a reticent talent: eschewing as much hype as is possible, he prefers to work in the shadows, conveying all that need be said through his emotive musical offerings. With organic and musical house releases that defy definition on imprints like Firecracker, Shevchenko, and Manchester’s Prime Numbers, you know it is always of an assured quality. Reaching even further than in his own productions, a Linkwood DJ set is a classic affair. Mixed solely on vinyl and made-up of timeless quality, they transport you through a tight spectrum of styles from 80’s boogie, detroit techno, house and deep soul, confidently blended to sustain the integral drama of quality subterranean club music.Ears : LINKWOOD, Dave Owen & Asher Jones Eyes : Joe Whitmore There will be a limited number of tickets on sale from August on Skiddle, otherwise its £6 in on the door....
