Customer Reviews


Sarah shines in her newest release, Born to Fly. Life suddenly shifts gears the moment you hear her clean, easy vocals. With a hint of Ella Fitzgerald in Born to Fly, to the folksy sound Sarah does best (think Indigo Girls) in Get Caught and Good Life, to beautiful, earthy harmonies in Mercy Me and Used to You, this album has a terrific sampling of Sarah's abilities. If you like Feist, add a lyrical twist of freshness and positivity, and you'll get this timeless EP.

Great great songs, whatever the genre

Sarah Sample, with the newest edition to her body of work, continues to defy any attempts at lazy, easy categorization. Is it folk? Well, "Get Caught" is, with its guitar-and-voices approach as well as the crafty wordplay and songwriting. Apparently it's the song that won her a main stage slot at Folks Festival, so it passes the folky test. What about "Mercy Me"? Is it gospel? Well, it's not singing about Jesus, if that's what you're asking. But it has aching harmonies that bring to mind a less bassy Blind Boys of Alabama. It's both resigned and empowered, in the Patty Griffin School of Witnessing. The revival comes all the way with some foot stomps and claps. What about "Good Life"? Is it alt-country? Well, it's not twangy, if that's what you're asking. But it tells a story that could be as old-timey as any Gillian Welch song. And "Born To Fly"? "Born To Fly" fits just fine in the world of the new breed of female singer/songwriters and would feel at home onstage with any of the traveling Hotel Cafe tours. The chorus is buoyant and the song is bouncy, in spite of dealing with a kid's crappy life. The fact that it's sung from the point of view of a caged bird makes it all the better. And Used To You? Well, it's just a great song, which- when it comes down to it- is the truth about Sarah Sample's newest EP: these are great, great song. You can try to stick them in tidy categories and box them up into marketable genres, but at the end of the day, it's about the songs. And the songs are great. Sung with soul. Played with passion. Produced creatively but unintrusively by the underrated Scott Wiley. FOR FANS OF: Patty Griffin, Ingrid Michaelson, The Weepies, Ray LaMontagne

Oh heart!

My favorite album this month! Sarah's voice is so full, yet so light. Love the title track. Beautiful! I highly recommend this EP.
