Sara Masterson

Sara Masterson stepped out as a folk rock singer/songwriter in 2009 when she self-released a five track EP called Hale Street Sessions. She began playing live in some of Chicago’s best venues like Subterranean and the Elbo Room, building up a solid fan base with her band, five guys whom she’d met in college. (Aaron Griffith: electric guitar, Nathaniel Strenger: drums, Kevin Jones: bass and Steve Smith: keys). Teaming up with talented musicians rounded out Sara’s well-crafted folk songs into rock anthems with a dreamy edge. Her band arrangements morphed her pretty folk tunes into songs that fans said reminded them of a female-fronted Coldplay, with nuance and artistry that is surprising for such a young artist. The band hit the studio in 2010 and emerged with ten songs, which make up the hopeful, dreamy and fiery landscape that is “We Don’t Belong,” Sara’s first full-length album, which will be released on iTunes and saramasterson.com on December 30th, 2010. Sara and her band will be touring throughout Chicago and the U.S. in 2011 to promote the new album.
