Some end of 2015 comments on ‘Losing You’ from Jamie Cullum:
“I’ve been coming back to it a lot this year… I feel like its been a proper grower of an album, it didn’t immediately sound like everything else she’s done before, and neither should it… I’ve lived with it for a while now, and it’s really just a beautiful album with a great sound and a great sense of atmosphere throughout it.” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2, 15/12/15.

Jamie Cullum plays ‘Losing You’, the title track from the full album out now on Impossible Ark Records:
‘What a superb track that is… It’s a really interesting record, more of a Rhythm and Blues, country-blues influence, as well as the jazz in there on this whole album. Beautifully produced, it’s a wonderful sounding record, it has some real eclectic moments on it… A really great step forward for Sara and I highly recommend you listen to the whole album.’ Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2, 30/06/15.
