Sarah Siskind has been called “the best female singer/songwriter in America today” (Steve Binder, legendary TV director/producer) and Nashville’s “Best New Voice” by Southern Living. She has toured with Bon Iver (he has also famously covered her “Lovin’s For Fools”) and The Swell Season, written songs for Alison Krauss (the GRAMMY nominated “Simple Love”) and Randy Travis. Sarah has performed live on NPR’s Tiny Desk, World Cafe with David Dye and her music has been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered and NPR’s Song Of The Day. Her previous album, Say It Louder, was called “a masterpiece” by Bonnie Raitt.
In July of 2010, Sarah Siskind found herself thousands of miles from her Tennessee home in a small ranch house just outside of Boulder. Escaping the oppressive southern summer heat for six weeks, she took temporary roots in Colorado while teaching songwriting at a nearby festival and touring the southwest. Her intent was to finish writing the songs for her new album, Novel, during her downtime.
Just out of a five-year publishing deal on Nashville’s Music Row, Sarah was inspired by the idea of exploring her sound as a musician and her vision as an artist. Bathing in this newfound freedom, her creativity burgeoned and she was soon setting up a microphone in the spare bedroom and hitting record.
It began with the recording of a simple guitar and vocal track for “Nowhere In The Middle”, a song that explores the dangers of loving someone too much.
