Late last year Sarah Teibo burst unto the British Gospel scene, heralded by the author of British Black Gospel himself, Steve Alexander Smith. Now, a few months on and many award nominations later, Sarah releases her debut album Walk With Me which has already racked up accolades from the previews alone.
What makes Sarah Teibo one to keep an eye on is an inspiring combination of old school grit and determination coupled with a new school creativity in music and business. The refreshing balance has seen Sarah dominate many headlines and after just one published single.
Sarah released her bouncing mid-tempo track ‘Steal My Joy’ (produced by renowned music producer GKID and the video directed by celebrated videographer Uvi Orogun) back in December 2015 and in the same month clinched the #2 position in UK Christian Chart.
In the annual round-up which analysed a whopping 344 submissions to the UK Christian Chart over the 2015 twelve month period, Sarah was named one of 12 Ones To Watch in 2016 alongside Becca Folkes and Fiona Yorke. Subsequently Sarah also received a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Gospel Xplosion Music Media Awards UK (GXMMA) and again in the first annual Premier Gospel Awards.
Sarah’s success in such a short time is also a testament to the benefit of the UK Christian Chart system, in celebrating the gifting of so many previously unheard of upcoming artists who are fast becoming household names in the UK scene.
Having heard the new 11 track album which features the likes of Lurine Cato, Ryan Carty and Triple O, it is obvious that a lot of thought went into crafting a musically diverse yet fresh and well rounded collection of songs.
Walk With Me features a unique blend of Neo Soul, R&B and Jazz with Gospel along with Afrobeats energy and a Marcus Johnson remix that will have you dancing with joy for days!
