About sara ayers
The fact that Sara Ayers has built a fairly successful career as a new age artist after spending most of the late '70s and early '80s in and out of punk-orientated bar bands only speaks to her broad musical vision and far-reaching influences. Perhaps her most successful early effort was with punk-influenced Dial Tones, who provided local support for the Ramones and Joe Jackson. Over the course of the next few years, Ayers paid her dues with an astounding number of projects and collaborations, including the Dialtones and AKA/etc. By 1985, Ayers had moved toward more synth and keyboard-driven ambient music, and in that year, debuted under her own name, releasing the Fluorochrome cassette on Blog Records. From 1985 to 1994 she appeared on only three compilations, (two of which were cassette-only), but in 1997, released her Voices full-length on Dark Wood Recordings. Rich with synth and vocal soundscapes, she started gaining popularity through a strong Internet presence and support within the new age community. The full-length Sylvatica followed in 1999 on Dark Wood Recordings, delving deeper into the very synthetic, ambient new age.
