Celebrated singer-songwriter Sarah Dashew has just released a new album into the world. Featuring nine original songs full of pathos determination and rebirth, recorded live in one whirlwind week in Colorado with her favorite musicians, Sarah has re-emerged from the pandemic with a bellyful of fire and a heart yearning for human connection and understanding. The production is organic, full of roots and folk and tinged with blues. The Snowmass Sessions is now live and available everywhere.
With an impressive 20+ year history, Sarah Dashew has managed multiple critically-praised albums and singles, successful tours, television spots, establishing her as one of the music industry’s most exciting singer-songwriters. Her insistence on fearless curiosity and creativity in the face of a world that demands increasing perfection earned Sarah an invitation to the US’s most popular TedX conference at Wake Forest University. She delivered an impassioned 19 minute discussion about childhood, freedom, defining success as a Creative, and more.
Sarah grew up sailing around the world with her family (her dad is a boat designer), listening to classic rock, folk and blues, artists like Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters. “We didn’t have TV” Dashew says. “We had books and music. And when we got to a new port, we would always meet the locals and invite them on board or to the beach for parties. Musical instruments would come out and everyone would play and sing: kids, grown ups, grandparents. So that was it…music was embedded.” Thus inspired by song since her early childhood, Dashew acknowledged music as her calling after watching a soulful gospel performance in college. From there, she moved to Austin, TX where she learned to write and perform alongside local favorites. Dashew’s first solo album, Jealous Girl, debuted in 2006 and was produced by Chuck Plotkin (of Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan fame). She then produced her follow-ups Where I Belong (2010), Sarah Dashew (2013), Something in the Weather (2014) and Roll Like A Wheel (2016). In 2019, Sarah released 4 consecutive singles, following a move to the desert and a return to the call of the wild and the child.
“Life is a constant journey of climbing and falling, loving and breaking, and I find a lot of joy in celebrating that,” Sarah says. “My music is my most constant companion. It’s how I understand relationship: with myself, with the world, with it all.” Sarah’s songs have earned spots on television shows, independent films, celebrity iTunes playlists, rave reviews of previous albums, and successful tours throughout the U.S. and Europe with the likes of Cowboy Junkies, Michelle Shocked, Suzanne Vega, Canned Heat, and more.
Sarah currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
Sarah’s music and book are available everywhere.
