Sara Petite


Circus Comes to Town

“There is no medical evidence to prove that Lucinda Williams, Nanci Griffith and Carrie Rodriguez joined forced to mother a fully grown musician daughter. But if they did, San Diego singer-songwriter Sara Petite would be the likely outcome.” – George Varga, San Diego Union Times.

On the title track for her new CD and fourth release, Circus Comes to Town, Sara Petite proves to be a bit of Disney's baby, creating lush lyrics in 3-D and enhanced color and relating wide-screen myths that never die. In her circus, bears waltz and sparkle while a trapeze artist swings thru death-defying space to grasp the ring.
“I open up my heart for you to view / hey, mister, I got troubles just like you.”

Petite captures the ring with all 11 tracks on Circus Comes to Town. She holds a tender, thoughtful quality – a flowing humanism – some quirky twists and turns; and then at times, she transports you to the depths of your soul.

As Vargas says, “She first had to overcome a state of emotional and physical depletion. . . fueled by intense grief and numbed at times by alcohol.”

You can feel Petite's pain in “Drinkin' to Remember” as she sings, “I ain't drinkin' to remember / I'm drinkin' to forget” and further explains, “I'm burning up your photograph / But there's still pictures in my head.”

"Sara Petite is one of the most exciting women in outlaw country music. There's no false image to Petite, no posing and a whole lot of fine music that will blow you away."
- June Lehman (Circle Agency)
