"Sarah-Jane Morris has a voice that can excite shivers of passion and delight... Soaring, swooping, sensual and sophisticated, this voice is more than a style, it's a force of nature"- The Observer
"(Antonio Forcione is) a performer of world class status... forceful and with an enviable technique, he takes the guitar to new levels of expression combining its melodic powers with dramatic percussive effects... miss him at your peril" - The Stage
Since Sarah-Jane topped the charts with The Communards cover of Don't Leave Me This Way in 1986, she has charted a compelling musical course beyond the mainstream including collaborations with symphony orchestras and all-cello ensembles, as well as appearances on both music and theatre stages performing politically inspired songs and jazz inflected songs of social injustice.
Following their success in 2017, Sarah-Jane returns to Crazy Coqs with the guitar artistry of world-renowned Forcione. Together they have each been compared to an impressive array of musical geniuses including Janice Joplin and Tom Waits (vocally) as well as Jimi Hendrix (instrumentally) - a comparison Forcione wears with pride. They also exude a wonderful chemistry when performing together.
Their 2016 album, Compared To What, is the result of this fruitful and varied songwriting collaboration. It covers a number of traumatic social issues and many songs of emotional intensity, which reflect the urgent concern both artists feel for the tragedy of refugees. Alongside the songs of conscience, the album includes some wry comedy, love songs and some memorable covers, notably Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and The Police's classic Message In A Bottle.
