When you listen to the music of Sarah Jarosz, its incredible to think that the mature songwriting and incredible musicianship comes from someone who is only 20. She sounds like she has been writing music for years and years yet she’s only on her second album. Sarah is from Texas and writes country/bluegrass inspired music with a perfectly fitting voice. Her first album ‘Song Up In Her Head’ is much more of a collection of delicate pretty songs than the second album ‘Follow Me Down’ which has more instrumentation and shows more bravery in places. I think Sarah is one of those people who will be around for many years to come.
She is doing a tour of the UK in July, I highly recommend you catch her on some of these dates.
