Zara McFarlane

If You Knew Her

'…a release that deserves to hit the mainstream like a runaway truck.’

Rising star Zara McFarlane has been making a big impact on the UK jazz scene since the release of her debut album, Until Tomorrow, in 2011. Now the MOBO Award-nominated vocalist performs songs from her second album, If You Knew Her: a heady mix of modern jazz and stealthy swing with an undercurrent of nu-soul, delivered with a power and depth reminiscent of Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald. Zara describes her latest collection as ‘representing a journey through a woman’s life’; others have described it as the arrival of a songwriter and performer of true stature.
