Sarah Jarosz got more attention than any banjo wielding 18 year old could hope to expect from the indie rock music world a few weeks back with the release of her Decemberists cover “Shankill Butchers” (here). I hope now that her Sugar Hill debut is about to be released those same sites continue to write about this up and coming Austin based folk artist.
“Song Up In Her Head” is the title track of her debut on Sugar Hill which is due out June 16th. Sarah’s a talented musician and has a velvet voice that suits her blend of bluegrass/newgrass perfectly. I’m no expert but those in the know (Tim O’Brien and Abigail Washburn) have been singing her praises for a while now. Order the new record now here and be entered into a Sugar Hill contest.
