Zara released her debut album on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings in October 2011. Positioned neatly between the twin worlds of modern jazz and eclectic nu-soul, Until Tomorrow confirmed the presence of a very special young voice on the UK scene. Exuding a liberal dose of subtle, stealthy swing, the album was rooted in the jazz tradition. However, Zara has brought an eminently soul undercurrent to what she does, and her music will appeal to audiences weaned on Jill Scott and Erykah Badu as easily as to those more attuned to Cassandra Wilson or Dianne Reeves.

In recent times Zara has supported Hugh Masekela; toured Europe including Jazz Middelheim and Elbjazz festivals; duetted with Gregory Porter; dropped a spectacular cover version of Junior Murvin's classic jam 'Police & Thieves'; and performed live on French radio station - Radio Nova - as part of a special broadcast of London acts. Zara played in London to a spellbound sell out crowd on the 9th of October, where she dropped some of her new material as well as songs from the first album.

Zara McFarlane’s debut album, Until Tomorrow, is now available on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings.
