ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bird To Prey, is singer and songwriter Sarah Turk from the remote town of Fremantle Western Australia who mixes folk, a little bit of blues and a little country, to sing songs about old flames, far away places and things about the night.

Originally hailing from Adelaide, South Australia, Sarah packed her van in 2003, and drove across the lonely Nullarbour where she arrived in Fremantle not knowing a single soul. She began writing songs inspired by her remoteness and isolation and once she began performing it didn't take long for her to establish herself a reputation as a powerful yet fragile performer whose shows were a joy to watch.

Sarah has come a long way since those wide eyed days and taken her music all over the world, performing in Toronto, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Ireland. She has had the honour of supporting the likes of Jeff Lang, Teddy Thompson (Son of folk legend Richard Thompson) Dom Mariani (The Stems), Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) the New Pornographers and has just returned from a stellar time at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City this October where she performed two shows as part of the festival.

In early 2007 Sarah began collaborating with renowned drummer Hugh Veldon who recorded on the debut album ‘We are not kings here’ which is set to be ‘officially’ released independently on November 15 with a launch party at the Norfolk Basement in Fremantle.

“At times seeming to pinch melodies from Heartbreaker-era Ryan Adams or early Tom Waits, and who could blame her, her minimalist guitar playing and swagger served her balladry brilliantly.” – Drum Media

Delightful Folk/Country/Blues CD
Bird to Prey's latest released album, "We Are Not Kings Here" gives Indie music sharp songwriting and a new sultry voice Colbie Caillat should be worried about. Singer/songwriter Sarah Turk displays vocals that ooze the same beauty as her contemporaries Nicole Atkins, Feist, and Jenny Lewis. She avoids being too mushy or self-loathing by using a Folk flavor that's just delightful. Aside from the usual piano and clean guitar, she makes use of different instruments such as bells on the charming track "Sing a Lullaby." A recommended track: "Pepper Tree Road" as it features an easy flowing rhythm and catchy melody. "We Are Not Kings Here" is a strong, sweet album that will be enjoyed by fans who take pleasure in listening to a fusion of Country, Folk, Indie, and Blues music.
