Album Notes
Just in time for Mother's Day, Eide's heart-throbbing album, "Dreams On Hold" depicts the unique, modern challenges of a real woman experiencing motherhood for the first time.

Eide is an award winning composer of film and game music, a classically trained pianist, and a performing singer-songwriter. For her record, Eide joined with a team of renowned Chicago based musicians to create an album that explores a wide range of American Roots music from bluegrass and folk to New Orleans jazz and gospel.

Her vulnerable songwriting and adept compositions have earned her accolades, including as a finalist in the Great American Song Contest for the song, “Shadow” the first single released from the album.

“I can’t shake you my shadow...” Eide sings in the opening lines of the song, a commentary on how children see and reflect, often unflatteringly, everything you do. The album as a whole covers a wide spectrum of emotion from tender to tongue-in-cheek to lamenting. Eide says the album is “about those moments when you feel like you're at tug of war between your aspirations and life’s priorities.”


Sarah Eide is a lot of things – an award winning composer of film and game music, a classically trained pianist, and a performing singer-songwriter. As a graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, it’s no surprise that her talent has taken her further than most independent artists – allowing her to pave a non-traditional path and lifestyle of full-time artistry.

In an industry that can often feel oversaturated with stale soundscapes, lifeless lyrics, and predictable patterns, Sarah Eide’s music cuts through the clutter. Drawing comparisons to iconic contemporary pianist such as Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, and Ben Folds, Eide’s music is equally thoughtful, quirky, intentional, and honest. It’s a sound she describes as cinematic folk rock with nuances of jazz and pop.

“In a lot of ways my life as a film/game composer crosses into my life as a songwriter. I treat my songs like scenes of movies… as though I’m scoring the lyrics. Most of my songs are written that way and I’ve heard time and again that my music sounds a bit like it was written for film.”
