Pakistani born, British raised Sarah Joyce, better known by her stage name Rumer, is a pop/ soul singer and songwriter.
Born on 3 June 1979 in Islamabad, Pakistan and moved to England at the age of 11. She started to perform under the name Sarah Prentice, she sang as part of a indie folk band called La Honda between 2000 and 2001, and later formed her own band called Rumer & The Denials. Both did fairly well in the local performing scene. She also recorded some solo songs under her real name in 2007 in South Korea. Rumer released her debut album “Seasons Of My Soul” in November 2010 and signed to Atlantic Records; she also set out on tour to support Jools Holland.
Rumer was invited by Burt Bacharach to his home in California to have her sing with him; eventually, this led to her working with Bacharach’s lyricist, as well as a release of a Christmas EP in December of 2010. In 2011 Rumer was nominated for Best Alternative Act and Best Newcomer for the UK Asian Music Award. In 2012 she was invited to perform at the White House for a Tribute concert for Bachacrach. She released her second album, “Boys Don’t Cry” in May 2012, followed shortly by “Into The Colour” in 2014 in the UK, Ireland and Japan. The album is scheduled to release in the United States in 2015.
