Music OMH review of ‘April Song’.
“There is something quietly remarkable about Sara Mitra’s debut. Though the term “crossover” can leave a horribly naff and cynical aftertaste, rarely has the balance been so effortlessly struck between a folky, singer-songwriter sensibility, a sophisticated jazz sound, and a broadly accessible appeal…in Sara Mitra, British jazz has an exciting new voice whose debut already sounds like the work of a wise old soul.” Edward Randell, Music OMH
