Interview: Sarah Close prepares for her headline show

The rising singer-songwriter is set to play in London this April.

Singer-songwriter Sarah Close is preparing to headline London’s O2 Academy Islington on what, she reveals, is her birthday.

It’s a fitting present for Close, who rose to fame across social media and YouTube, and is now celebrating a budding music career. Last year saw the star perform at London’s Borderline, as well as release music preparing the world for her debut album.

A fiercely independent artist, Sarah Close released the infectious Crazy Kind towards the end of the year. She launched 2019 with the release of london – one of a handful of new tracks she mentions in the interview above.

With her O2 Academy Islington show ever-closer, and off the back of her Borderline headline date and the release of Crazy Kind and london, we caught up with Sarah to find out more about the rising star.

Catch Sarah Close at London’s O2 Academy Islington on Saturday 27 April 2019.
