Hey Sarah, tell us a bit about yourself:
Hi! I’m an independent artist based out of Dallas, TX. I’ve been a singer and performer my entire life but I guess you could say until a few years ago I’ve had a pretty shaky relationship with music. I’ve been in and out of the industry for years and I’ve written hundreds of songs but it wasn’t until I went through some life changing events that I finally started writing music that was true to who I am as an artist. I’ve been writing with Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jay Stolar for almost two years now on this new project. It’s been a deeply personal and freeing experience and I’m beyond excited to put it out into the world.
Where did the new single come from?
I went through a gut wrenching divorce a little over two years ago. After you’ve been with someone for so long it can feel impossible to let them go. My ex and I were both struggling with the idea of not having the other person in our lives and it turned into a really tumultuous and emotional experience for me. I would have moments of feeling free but as soon as I would hear his voice or get a message from him it would throw me back into a downward spiral. I needed not only for him to let me go, but also to allow myself to move on. This song is a conversation with myself; a realization that I needed to move forward.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
Yes!! I’m still writing new material while recording these new tunes. I hope to release the first EP this summer with a follow-up EP this fall or early 2018.
What’s on the horizon for you?
I feel very blessed to be able to do this for a living. Even on my toughest days I wouldn’t change my life for anything. I’m excited to keep writing and releasing music and eventually go on tour!
