"Here she sings and enchants us, a new sound! A name to remember : SARAH LANCMAN!"
- Charles Aznavour
"She's truly a great new voice for Jazz" "
- Quincy Jones ( International Shure Voice Competition, Montreux 2012)
"Sarah Lancman has written a very endearing album, beautifully inspired by the memory of the great melody writer, here - Michel Legrand seems to be a major influence."
- Jazz Magazine (France)
"The quality of her writing stands out, she sings about love and loss and there isn't one track that doesn't belong here."
- Adam Sieff - London Jazz News
Born in 1989, Sarah Lancman is a French vocalist, pianist and songwriter based in Paris. Starting at the tender age of seven, she began classical piano studies at the Conservatoire du Centre in Paris. Many years later, whilst she was completing her Bachelor's degree in composition, jazz piano and singin at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne (HEMU), she also won First Prize in the International Shure Voice Competition in Montreux (Switzerland) in 2012, chaired that year by Quincy Jones.
Sarah has toured in her home country of France and Turkey many times and has performed in other European countries such as Switzerland and Spain. In 2016, she was invited by The Jazz Foundation of America to perform in New York as one of three “Rising Stars” from being a prior Montreux Jazz Festival winner.
Sarah also toured in Japan and South Korea in 2018. She was managed by music label Jazz Eleven for five years to 2021 and just created her own company Unlimited Music France in September 2022 for producing her new album.
She returns with a sixth album, "Le pouvoir des mots" (The Power Of Words) borrowing a majestic sweetness in which she reconnects with her love of the piano by singing on original compositions inspired by the world of Michel Legrand, Charles Aznavour as well as that of the musical comedies of the 60s, thus mixing her love for Jazz & the Chanson tradition on arrangements signed by Philippe Maniez. Accompanied by the prestigious Quatuor Hanson and special guests, Belgian-New Yorker guitarist Jeanfrancois Prins, as well as the rising jazz star, the saxophonist Louis Billette, this new opus will be released in spring 2023 : MAY 26TH 2023.
