A project that draws on many different influences including Nick Drake, The Velvet Underground & Nico's (chelsea girl era), and a more contemporary Elliott Smith. Having sung with the likes of Neil Halstead (Slowdive/Mojave 3), Sufjan Stevens, Diefenbach and Denison Witmer, Sarah's music has been discovered long before recorded. Her voice is like a tonic, soothing and comforting long after the lights have dimmed and the concert hall emptied. Recorded in Cornwall and Copenhagen with Neil Halstead and members of Mojave 3 lending a welcome hand the songs have taken on the atmospheres of the windswept beaches, the headlands, the winding roads of Cornwall, the friends and familiarity of Copenhagen, all seen through an Americans eyes with flashes of nostalgia to home comforts and stories to tell of growing up in Chicago. The blend of background and backdrops creates a thick tapestry that weaves through every song leaving a depth in them un-encountered by most artists. These are timeless songs, written over the years, collected on tape and paper and finally completed. "The voice of new indie" is about as solid a compliment as anyone could ask for, especially from the famously tight-lipped OOR magazine in Holland.
With roots in americana, watered by years in Glorybox, and silent moments alone by a windowsill, this album is a profile of someone's personality – an intimate look into Sarah's world, woven together and bound by close friends, fans and family.
