As you know I spend a lot of time with rock-driven music and then something comes along that completely floors me.
The St Buryan Sessions by Sarah McQuaid is already in my top 5 albums of the year. It is just spellbinding.
If you like Joni Mitchell, John Martyn, Kristin Hersh, Janis Ian and Eva Cassidy then give this a listen.
One member of the Now Spinning Magazine Facebook Community described Sarah's voices as being like melting chocolate, that is a very good description.
In this Podcast Sarah talks about the new album and her career so far.
Sarah also talks about her love of Nick Drake, John Martyn and Pentangle. (Both Pentangle and Nick Drake have been featured on the Now Spinning Magazine Website).
“One of the most instantly recognisable voices in current music … Shades of Joni Mitchell in a jam with Karen Carpenter and Lana Del Rey.”
—Neil March, Trust The Doc
“She reached parts other singers fail to do ... There is emotion, beauty, passion and musically great arrangements and fab playing. It’s a complete package. I loved the show and was very moved.”
—Rob Bozas, Bozas International (Publisher, Peter Gabriel/Real World)
“Captivating, unorthodox songwriting … layered satin vocals ... enthralling, harrowing arrangements … a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.”
“Her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever.”
