This former vocalist of alt-folk band La Honda proffers a smooth, retro jazz sound and a lush voice reminiscent of Karen Carpenter.

Rumer's 'Seasons of My Soul' is the debut album from young, Pakistan-born British singer-songwriter Sarah Joyce - her stage name inspired by the novelist Margaret Rumer Godden, whose childhood in the Indian subcontinent mirrors Joyce's own. This former vocalist of alt-folk band La Honda proffers a smooth, retro jazz sound and a lush voice reminiscent of Karen Carpenter.

Her debut album is a beautiful, autobiographical yet brilliantly universal record. Lyrically, Rumer's songs draw on her rich and complex personal history.

"The best new voice of the year."
- Mojo Magazine (5 stars)

"The hype is justified - this new singer is the real deal."
- Sunday Times

"'Slow' isn't just a beautiful fluke [and] she's more than a new discovery. She's the best act of her kind that we've heard in ages."
- Guardian

"Clearly well on her way to stardom... Rumer is stunning."
- The Independent

"I doubt you'll get a more immediately beautiful, engaging or repeat-play album for adults this year."
- Graham Reid, Elsewhere
