‘Sarah Gillespie regularly has critics reaching for big-name comparisons. Is she the new Joni Mitchell? PJ Harvey? Bob Dylan even? Mixing jazz-folk artistry and punk attitude, third album Glory Days (Pastiche) recalls all three in places but Gillespie’s spiky lyrical gift is utterly distinctive. The album boasts an array of top-notch supporting players (Kit Downes, Gilad Atzmon) but the stripped-back arrangements keep Gillespie centre stage throughout. As well as a fine singer, she’s also a smart bluesy guitarist: the lovely, resonant guitar intro to Oh Mary briefly echoes Led Zeppelin’s The Rain Song’
