SARA STORER - CANOE wins ‘Video Clip of the Year’ at the 2015 Golden Guitar Awards


Sara Storer adds another Golden Guitar to her collection in the ‘Video Clip of the Year’ category for her stunning single ‘Canoe’, presented at the 43rd annual CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia in Tamworth on Saturday night. The video was directed by the talented Duncan Toombs, from Filmery. This takes Sara to a grand total of 4 x Golden Guitars for her highly acclaimed album ‘Lovegrass’, which was released last year through ABC Music/Universal. Recorded with John Williamson, ‘Canoe’ was one of the first songs penned for the ‘Lovegrass’ album.

Sara explains the inspiration behind ‘Canoe’:

This is my dedication to John Williamson. 
Tamworth 2012… I hadn’t written a song for a very long time and at that stage in my life my little family was taking priority. I caught up with John at Tamworth and he had just released his album ‘Big Red’. The energy, the excitement and the sparkle in his eyes, inspired me to lift the pen as soon as I got back home to Darwin. My Mojo was back! AND this was the song I penned… the words say it all. John also came into the studio to put down jaw harp, harmonica and JW’s signature vocal huff and puff.
To my dear friend JW… Thank you for inspiring my love of song!! Oh yeah and thanks Greg Storer too… one cooked chook and a slab of beer in the post from Darwin to Warren.

‘Lovegrass’ is Sara Storer’s 4 x Golden Guitar-winning, ARIA Award-nominated fifth studio Album.
