No one ever forgets the first time they hear Sarah's voice.
That's because regardless of whether you're a jazz buff or not, it immediately arrests you and holds your attention. Like a fine wine, you can't help but want more of it.
There's something soul-touching about the tone of her voice, the way she hits the notes, the interplay between the instruments of her talented sidemen and the haunting melodies of her original songs that put you instantly in another world where you quickly forget what you were supposed to be doing and lose yourself in the pure emotion of her music.
Whoever you are and whatever kind of music you like, you owe it to yourself to at least have a listen to Bright Lights and Promises.
Rarely, if ever, does a song hit you like a ton of bricks like that. It somehow manages to whisk you away and actually make you feel like you're mingling with high society on the top floor of a skyscraper in New York City.
Even if you've never visited a jazz club and aren't all that into the genre, you'll instantly gain a newfound appreciation for what makes this kind of music so special and rare.
Sarah's music and voice truly stand out like a beacon of light in a world of auto-tuned, soulless pop music. It'll snap you out of your trance and make you feel like you're alive again in a world that has lost its way.
Sarah is widely known for her interpretations of the Great American Songbook as well as for writing her own compositions.
She was an actress until one fateful night in 1994 when she accepted a dare at a karaoke night at the Improv in Los Angeles and sang Gershwin's "Summertime.” The impromptu performance caught the ear of a booker, who promptly hired her to perform in a concert with top tier L.A. jazz musicians.
Her acting and voiceover work has been featured in over 20 movies and TV shows including "Risky Business" with Tom Cruise, "My Little Pony: The Movie", `"My Little Pony" the series (Generation 1), and "Defenders Of The Earth."
She has worked alongside legends Doc Cheatham, Bucky Pizzareli, and Frank Wess.
This special, limited edition collection presents her life's work in music.
