The British electropop trio Client announced via a press release just before Christmas that front woman Sarah Blackwood is leaving the band to focus on other projects. Kate Holmes  is reportedly already in the process of recruiting a replacement.

Sarah Blackwood broke through in Dubstar (along with Chris Wilkie) back in 1993 when she replaced original vocalist Steve Hillier, and then become part of the Client, together with Kate Holmes and Emily Man at the beginning of the 2000s.

Client was the first band that was signed to Depeche Mode keyboardist Andy Fletcher’s record label Toast Hawaii and have been following the self-titled debut album “Client” from 2003 released three full length albums – “City” (2004), “Heartland” (2007) and later “Command “from 2009.
