Birmingham singer songwriter Sarah Riches is set to release her debut album, ‘Come Around’, on November 1. Two years in the making, the retro-feel album calls to mind artists and songwriters including Carole King, Dusty Springfield, The Carpenters, Fleetwood Mac, and Burt Bacharach, as well as more recent artists such as Norah Jones, and Rumer.

Sarah’s mellow and soothing voice is the perfect accompaniment to the album’s varied and multi-layered instruments, backing vocals, and harmonies. Producer  Adrian Kimberlin, of Exit Recording, has taken great care with the instrumentation, ensuring that the retro feel goes across the entire album. Just about all are Sarah’s original tracks (the only exception being a beautiful cover of ‘Second Chance’, by “Whispering” Bob Harris’s favourite singer, Robert Vincent), and sound retrospective – as if from another era.
