Presenting Sarah Walk; the self-proclaimed dreamer hailing from Minneapolis but now based in the City of Angels. Signed to One Little Indian (Bjork’s record label), her music has been said to be “cynically optimistic” with “in your face lyrics, every bit as raw and passionate as one could hope.” We hope you’re ready for it….
A graduate of Berklee College of Music (alumni includes St Vincent among others), Sarah grew up in Minneapolis but has spent much of the last year living between Los Angeles and West London, working on her debut album with Steve Brown (Laura Mvula – Sing to the Moon).
Having toured with the aforementioned Mvula and playing at Dot-to-Dot Festival – showcasing her songs to the public for the very first time – 2016 proved a busy year for Sarah Walk, which earned herself fans in the shape of Lauren Laverne (BBC6 Music), Line of Best Fit, Wonderland, Clash, Virgin Radio and the Metro newspaper.
Her distinct androgynous voice, reminiscent of Leslie Feist, marries the husk of Joni Mitchell to the sweetness of Judie Tzuke and a unique rhythmic piano playing style. Sarah also credits her band, including Bloc Party’s Louise Bartle on drums, with breathing life into her stunningly beautiful tracks.
WHERE CAN I SEE HER?
