With the release of a new album entitled Compared To What, Sarah- Jane teams up with the guitar artistry of world-renowned Antonio Forcione, producing a compelling, unique and haunting album. 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 Antonio wears with pride. But Sarah-Jane and Antonio are both great artists in their own right and share audiences all over the world. They also exude a wonderful chemistry when performing together.
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. Eight tracks on the 12 track album are original material co-written by Morris and Forcione and with some of the lyrics by Johny Brown, Sarah -Jane’s long term collaborator. 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.
