Other tracks on the album cover kicking rockabilly, slow-dance country waltzes and traditional country heartbreakers – a cornucopia of country from Sarah’s wry, honest and authentic songbook. After the demise of GIT, Sarah has been hard at work on her new projects, including The Junes with fellow GIT gal Suzannah Espie and Toe-Sucking Cowgirl Glenyss Rae, and has been looking forward to releasing her solo material. Recorded with a band of talented friends and admirers, Yippee feels like a family affair or an old-fashioned country hoedown, and Sarah pays tribute to these wonderful collaborators, “delighted with the way the sounds I've heard in my head for so long have made it onto tape at last.” “Some of the friends who helped me are Azo Bell, sailor of Byron Bay, who plays the most wondrous things on ukulele and saw; Andy Baylor, my indispensable pal, who oversaw the early sessions and played fiddle, mandolin and guitar on pretty much everything. Leigh Ivin, of North Coast legends, The Re-Mains, (pedal steel and electric guitar) who I believe is a genius; Jeff Lang, possibly Australia's most talented acoustic guitarist and dobroist, who appears on four tracks and blesses each one; Chris Wilson, whose unmistakable tone soaks everything it touches with emotion; and the Damp Panties, a seven-piece singing chickfest including Suzannah Espie, Lil Fi, Barb Waters and Kerri Simpson.” The album is a heartfelt shout from the Glam Country Nation filled with strong country sounds, smart, intuitive storytelling and, of course, Sarah’s emotive voice. Yippee should be well received by the media and her many friends and fans.
“How could it not have been fun?” Sarah asks. “Please enjoy it as much as I do!” Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
