At Hit Sheet Towers we are suckers for good, old-fashioned singer/ songwriters, especially the female ones whose songs actually tell a story. Up On The Heath fits the bill nicely and reminds us of the Michelle Shocked classic Anchorage.
Sadie Jemmett’s life is the story of the road much travelled, a bohemian childhood, teenage runaway, singing bv’s in a reggae band, becoming an au-pair in Switzerland, squatting in Berlin, a touring actress to now ploughing her furrow as a singer songwriter. All this by the age of 21!
Somewhere on her travels Sadie found time to appear at a Hit Sheet showcase a couple of years ago (we still have her gloves to return) and wowed us all with her performance.
Sadie’s love for Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and other 70’s legends inspired her to pick up a guitar and write. The album The Blacksmith’s Girl is released on Wildflower which is the label set up by the legendary Judy Collins who saw Sadie perform in London when Sadie opened for her at the Jazz Café.
Up On The Heath is produced by Ed Harcourt who also plays on the track as does Cass Browne percussionist from Gorillaz.
The very busy Sadie will be touring throughout the coming months.
