Hailing from the tropical paradise of Magnetic Island in North Queensland, Random Sass are Sara Shaw (vocals) and Clare Whitcombe (keyboard).

Captivating performances that transport audiences back in time, Sara and Clare blend musicianship, creativity and tradition. These talented musicians easily adapt between jazz, blues, soul and any genre they put their minds to.


More Info

With extensive experience in the music industry, they’ve been described as “… excellent musicians whose brilliance bounces off one another and gives a magical performance”.
You never know what to expect next, and that’s part of what makes them a joy to watch!

Sara has been in the music industry for over 25 years, singing everything from acappella and gospel to rock. With a particular love for jazz, blues and soul, she’s performed around Australia and in the USA, and at many leading festivals including WOMAD, Melbourne Jazz Festival, Melbourne International Festival, Sydney A Cappella Festival, Wangaratta Jazz Festival, Bay Dayz Festival, and Palmer Street Jazz Festival. She is also a singing teacher, a session musician and a website and graphic designer.

Clare has an impressive history in the music scene. Originally hailing from New Zealand, she's performed in Dubai, Europe and South Korea. She’s also toured throughout Australia with theatre, rock, reggae, blues, folk, soul and jazz ensembles. Clare has composed for film and television; written, arranged and musically directed vocalists and solo artists; and appeared as a session keyboard player, vocalist and collaborator on countless albums. She also teaches music, piano and composition to students ranging from 4 years to 72 years of age.

Random Sass often play as a duo, but they can easily expand to create a bigger sound as a trio, or with a larger backing band.
