We're excited to welcome Sarah Blacker with Aaron Katz as she premieres new material in preparation for an upcoming live album. The singer-songwriter, a Brandon Music favorite, is known as Boston's 'Sundress Rocker'. The Huffington Post says “her infectious, well-written songs led to her being named Female Performer of the Year at the New England Music Awards.” She has often been compared to Sara Bareilles but the Huffington Post says “comparisons be damned: she's her own artist.”
Sarah certainly has a knack for songwriting. She writes in an uninhibited, honest and fearless style, producing “a constant flow of material” that, according to South Shore Magazine “is a testament to the fact that she is such a prolific writer”. Red Line Roots agree; they say Sarah “weaves songs that tell personal, yet relatable tales.”
However, her ability to write is only half the battle, says South Shore, because “when Sarah performs her music, she is equally steeped in technical proficiency as well as pure emotion, bringing a veteran's confidence to the whole package.” Along with Aaron, a percussionist with the national band Percy Hill, Sarah artfully spans rock, pop, indie-folk, and Americana.
In 2014, Sarah was nominated for song and songwriter of the year at the New England Music Awards, in addition to winning ‘Female Performer of the Year'. She was also nominated for ‘Songwriter of the Year' in the Boston Music Awards. Sarah has toured extensively and shared stages with dozens of internationally renowned artists including Mishka, Sara Bareilles, Leon Russell, Rusted Root, Carbon Leaf, America, Eddie Money, Richard Thompson, 10,000 Maniacs, Loudon Wainwright III, Livingston Taylor, Paula Cole and many others. www.sarahblacker.com
