Known for her powerhouse voice and “fiery, vulnerable songs,” Sarah King creates thought-provoking, versatile Americana music. Her genuine stories about real-life emotions and situations also draw on classic folk-blues themes, balancing songs about the devil and booze with hard-won moments of reflection and acceptance. Her acclaimed 2021 EP The Hour, produced by Simone Felice and David Baron, earned her recognition as the New England Music Awards songwriter of the Year and performances at the 2022 Folk Alliance International and Philadelphia Folk festivals, as well as supporting slots for acts including Blues Traveler and The Steel Woods.
For her follow-up to The Hour, King is once again taking risks – this time moving beyond the darkness and introspection that informed her debut solo EP to create a sound echoing the vibrancy of her high-spirited live show. Whether solo or with her full band, she delivers moments of light and darkness, angels and devils, badassery and brokenness, taking listeners on an energetic and sometimes emotional journey through stories of American life. Fans of Chris Stapleton, Elle King, and Alabama Shakes will recognize a kindred spirit in Sarah King.
King will be performing solo on this night in anticipation of her new recording project with producer/arranger David Baron, whose work has reached #1 on the AAA chart. He has collaborated with artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Shawn Mendes, The Lumineers, Jade Bird, and Vance Joy.
