Her sound has been compared with those of Sarah McLaughlan, Brooke Fraser and Norah Jones. Another is a singer/songwriter from Arkansas. She is a local favorite, playing the bars and venues in the college town of Fayetteville, Arkansas. The powerful Southern voice anchoring her folk-rock style has drawn comparisons to Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, & Lucinda Wiliams.

She draws from such diverse influences as Gillian Welch, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, & Widespread Panic, resulting in a sound that houses traditional country storytelling in steady rhythms & strumming with some southern jam-rock on the side. Born on the banks of the Misssissippi in Memphis, she was raised 40 miles west in Forrest City, Arkansas. Her musical beginnings can be traced to her father, a guitar player himself, who taught her the basics during her teenage years. Sarah attended Hendrix College to study visual arts where, in the company of other aspiring musicians, she began to sing & write songs. After graduating in 2002, she migrated with friends to New York City and although her raspy drawl was well-received at East Village locales, she quickly realized that a tiny Harlem apartment and the metropolitan life were not an ideal fit for her.

They were enough, however, to inspire the song "Southern Savage." Sarah soon settled in Fayetteville in mid-2003 and soon gained recognition throughout the region. Currently, Sarah plays solo gigs weekly, and her full band is filling clubs with its high-energy versions of Sarah's original songs. Sarah recorded her first album last spring with songs that highlight the adventurous ramblings of a 20-something, including a 2004 trek to Central Mexico. Her songs are humorous, thoughtful, and delivered in a sexy twang that makes you say, "She's got it!" Yet another Sarah Hughes is a London-based improviser playing the chorded zither, piano and e-bow.

she is part of the Loris ensemble. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
