On 'Dreams on Hold', her first full length album, Sarah crafts her life's journey into beautiful, sassy, surprisingly catchy songs that are in turns moving, playful and raw.
Each song earns its place here. and she covers a lot of ground musically, with the help of a troupe of excellent backing musicians that expand her musical palette and textures.
From the country folk of 'The Bridge Song’ with a timely reminder that we have the power to unify rather that divide... if we choose; to the vaudevillian / stride piano jazz of 'Shadow' that deals with the darker side of human nature in an (ironically) playful way.; Sarah takes on the big themes in a very personal, intimate way.
The upbeat 'Cry, Cry, Cry' has shades of R&B Motown and Carol King whilst 'Dreams on Hold’, a song of personal sacrifice and determination, has a more rootsy folk feel, but whatever the style, the melodies and harmonies stir strong emotions.
Through it all, the well crafted songs, Sarah's piano, and soulful vocals weave a magical album that will get your toes a-tappin' and your heart a-soaring!
So don’t put your 'dreams on hold' - get it now!
