WALK BETWEEN SARAH'S WORLD

"Sarah Brown's resume includes work with icons such as Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Duran Duran, George Michael Pink Floyd, Simply Red, but she's recognized most for her work with a specific set of epic classic rock acts: Roxy Music and Simple Minds"

Impressive! I have been working with Sarah for almost 10 years, and even I did not know how extensive and indeed prestigious her career has been to date. Well, if plainly she is not the boastful type, then what is she like? The answer is that she is both shy and gregarious, and in truth we seem to spend more time laughing than we do anything else. She is a hoot in fact! A very elegant one though.

In a sane world Sarah's colossal talent would ensure that she would be at the front of stage every night. If so, I would be in the first row. I am her biggest fan after all.

You can read all about the path she has taken, and how she ended up playing such a substantial role with Simple Minds live.
It has not been easy for Sarah and she has experienced some heartbreak along the way.

What more can I say? I feel honoured to have her by my side. A career highlight for me no doubt.

If I remember correctly Sarah went on stage with you for the very first time in Copenhagen in 2009. I was at that gig and I remember her being very nervous...understanably! During the following years it was great to see her finding her place within the band. She's a wonderful woman with an amazing and beautiful voice. I really can't imagine a Simple Minds gig without her anymore. And be sure if she was doing her own shows I would be there in the first row together with you! 🙂

Che Donna! 😄 Amazing lady and brilliant singer and her credits are top top top for those who ever ignore them! When I saw her the 1st time in Turin I've been enchanted by her voice of course...then by her wonderful legs and she also has a fantastic diamond on her finger...pure class 😊 and still got it! Well it's easy if it's all natural! Ciao Sarah see you in Summer!

Absolute class all day long. If not for people like Sarah, simple minds would be in a harder position today, performing on stage. Top class

I remember watching a pretty nervous woman taking to the stage on the Grafitti Soul tour, but boy did she own Alive & Kicking. Forward 8 years and she totally owned the acoustic album and tour. Reinventing the songs on acoustic meant we could hear Sarahs soul and the soul of the songs, it was beautiful. Now Sarah just naturally feels part of the team. Heres an idea, why not put together a solo album for Sarah?

All the Things she Sings 💙 .. i've seen her live with many bands & artists, but at Simple Minds she found her perfect home

Sarah has a lovely and powerful voice and sounds amazing on stage, so glad you are with Simple Minds, Sarah. Thank you to Mr Cox for encouraging you to do what you are very natural and brilliant at. 😊

I like Sarah !!!!!! great presence on stage and great voice xxx

Amazing voice, thanks a lot for this tour and this wonderful album !!

Sarah is a irreplaceable part of Simple Minds - I have seen her many times with Simply Red - and already then I was deeply impressed and delighted... Then when I saw her with SM ..wow she grow so much in presence and in the same time she is not foregrounded... sorry hard to say in English... But I love it when you give her her own and so wonderful moments... so everybody who might not know her jet can see an hear what a wonderful and outstanding woman she is! <3

Loved her singing The Call’s Let the Day Begin and also love her self-mockery and sense of humor! And she looks awesome in tartan!

Let the day begin. Watching Sarah for nearly ten years as a backing singer was one thing, but seeing her as a lead singer on the acoustic tour was something else. One of the highlights of the gig was Sarah singing a cover. That’s how good she is.

A massive addition to the band, especially in the call and respond type songs...just like Robin Clark before her....does a great job and long may it continue! ➕🖤⭐

Sarah Brown brings so much. Please always have Sarah in the band and Sarah, if you read this, please never leave. Absolutely incredible, and mesmerising voice.

I can’t imagine Simple Minds without ‘Sadie Broon’ now, she has such an amazing voice and stage presence!

With the great #GEORGEMICHÆL ⭐my goodness 😣👏👏👏

Sarah Brings Soul to Simple Minds

Awesome. Hadn’t realized she had been on stage with the great Pink Floyd. What a career indeed! And what a lady!

This lady has SOUL 💗👏 Sing on forever Sarah! 🤩

Really interesting interview showing also how smart and reflective she is. And apart from that I loved her voice right from the beginning. Her interpretation of 'Dancing barefoot' is fantastic. Great that you let her perform as a lead singer for a song during your shows.

Well, seemingly if your dad had anything to do with it, she WOULD be SM’s lead singer. And...she did make me giggle when, rather self deprecatingly (in one of Cherisse’s video diaries), referring to herself as a “vocal prostitute”. Oh, Sarah! Those are not the words I’d use (and you know what I’m like with innuendo and all)!

She's awesome. Personally my standout highlight at the recent WBW Roundhouse gig. She's a keeper, please 👍😊🎙

She was amazing !! Well done Sarah, it was a pleasure to have you with our beloved jim & Charlie 🙂 Impressive list of bands too you've done lady. Love Simply Red too 🙂

Sarah has the most incredible voice, has the most amazing pair of legs I have ever seen in my life and complements Simple Minds beautifully. 🙂

She's such a talented artist! She was amazing last week in Paris. She makes me cry very often, her voice is so warm and moving. Love you, Sarah! Love, from France.

Sarah...great voice, presence, elegance with that wonderful kind of sensuality...just gorgeous!! And as you wrote Jim, her career is awesome, so we are very proud to have her with our band Simple Minds
