Sarah Humphreys takes the ingredients of the classic songwriter and combines these with a sense of spontaneity, ukeleles, a love of old vinyl and an amazing ability to stare out the window. She is a dreamer, a storyteller and a romantic. Sarah stands out as a genuine artist and a wonderful talent.
Sarah is a prolific and award winning songwriter (2009 ABC Music Artist of the Year) and signed with Mushroom Publishing in early 2009. Her songs have featured in movie and TV soundtracks and even the obligatory Home and Away wedding montage. Her love affair with her craft began under the tutelage of the Beatles and other old school pop music and heightened when she discovered Ray LaMontagne and Ryan Adams.
She has been described as:
'Earthy, Grounded & Honest.' by Drum Media.
Dom Alessio from Triple J says:
'Folk-pop doesn't get much better than this… A perfect mix of self-confessed vulnerability and confidence…'
Over the past ten years she's supported & toured with artists including Kasey Chambers, Shane Nicholson, Sara Storer, Diesel, Mick Hart, Mark Seymour & Renee Geyer in small pubs, big stages, folk festivals, lounge rooms & everywhere in between.
In 2008 Sarah released her breakthrough album 'Teapot Trees & Love Birds' garnering her much industry respect, radio play and many new fans with a gorgeous blend of folk, pop and 60's inspired songs.
In September 2011, Sarah signed with ABC Music. Her first release is a Ukelele album of 6 of her favourite cover songs called 'Him.' In addition, ABC will be releasing two original Sarah Humphreys albums over the following two years.
It is amazing to see a genuine and authentic soul being true to their calling in life. In addition to being a mother and an artist, Sarah aims in her life to connect, to share and to encourage more daydreaming and staring out of the window.
