About Sarah Borges

Walking that fine line between punk and country, Sarah Borges emerged from Boston with her alt-country debut, Silver City, in 2005. Influenced by a wide range of artists including Mahalia Jackson, Sid Vicious, Hank Williams, and Merle Haggard, Borges has a sound that encompasses rootsy barroom country and hard-edged American rock with a fair amount of ease. Signed to Blue Corn after a well-received gig at South By Southwest in 2004, Borges went into the studio to work on her debut. Some tracks from the demo sessions were good enough to make the final cut, and the album was released to critical praise. She spent a good portion of the summer of 2005 touring and promoting Silver City alongside such respected players as Dave Alvin. Borges returned to the studio soon after, working once again with producer Paul Q. Kolderie. Her second full-length, Diamonds in the Dark, arrived in 2007. ~ Chris True
