ONE TO WATCH! CAITLYN SHADBOLT TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘SONGS ON MY SLEEVE’ OUT MAY 26th
SARA STORER TEASES US WITH FIRST SINGLE ‘PURPLE COCKIES’
FROM HER FORTHCOMING ALBUM, DUE FOR RELEASE MARCH 2016
It was just two years ago this month when SARA STORER picked up 3 Golden Guitar Awards for her album, Lovegrass at the CMAA Country Music Awards in Tamworth.
Sara has certainly kept busy the last few years, giving birth to her 4th son as well as writing and recording her 6th full length album, filled with exciting new material.
The title of the new album is yet to be announced, but is due for release in March.
‘Purple Cockies’is the first single to be lifted from the upcoming release and one that is sure to hit a chord with Sara’s legion of fans.
As with all of Sara’s songs, the lyrics paint a picture and tell a story that takes the listener into her world of Australian rural life.
But never in cooee of a cliché.
For the inspiration for Purple Cockies, Sara explains:
“I was once again inspired by John Williamson. His lines ‘she sings of cockies in a purple sky’ became the key to unlocking a very heart felt and emotional song of happiness.
Dave and I have found a new home out of Albury. It’s only a little place, but to us it’s our mansion. We are truly grateful that we are able to give our boys a backyard that's the size of a paddock and one that they can share with a couple of cows.
With the help of a 'whistle' from my dear friend John Williamson and the gorgeous backing vocals from Fanny Lumdsen, this song reflects a time and place in my life that I have been dreaming about for a long time.”
This happiness and contentment can be heard in the lyrics for Purple Cockies:
“I hear it, the music of the land and I feel it, heart beating in the ground. And I’m hanging washing on the line, children, birds and cattle all in time”
World-class production was again provided by award winning producer, Matt Fell.
Catch Sara with performances at the Tamworth Country music festival 2016, and keep your eyes peeled for more on the upcoming album.
On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, the Exes are a powerhouse of charm and songwriting prowess. Fair warning: this foursome is the most badass female folk band around.
