ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer-songwriter Sarah Sadler releases her sophomore record, Where It Started, the follow-up release to her 2002 self-titled debut. With an unconventional method of record making set out for mainstream success, the artist establishes herself as an emerging talent with solid songs and creative production. “We really wanted to make a record that didn't have rules,” Sarah says. “The title Where It Started came out of a lyric from a song on the record called ‘Pedaling Backwards’; it represents my feeling that this is the project that defines me in a musical capacity and is also something that I can be proud of as an artist. There are pros and cons to doing an independent record, but for us it was the right decision to go it alone this time around and show what we’re capable of.”

Teaming up with her father, Gary Sadler to co-write and produce Where It Started, the Nashville based artist says, “This record is homegrown from start to finish. It was a long time in the making, but well worth it when you can walk away with a project that you're excited about.”

With various musical influences from pop to country impacting her writing style, much of what draws the listener into Sarah's music is the relation to real life. “When I listen to music, I'm taken somewhere,” Sarah says. “Music is the soundtrack of life and the songs I find myself listening to over and over again are those songs that get me where I feel it personally. I try my best to write what I know, but I also try to write songs from others' perspectives in a way that I could easily connect to as well.”

As a third generation professional musician, Sarah got her start in music at the age of nine when one of her original compositions was recorded on a children's music project. With a strong musical family supporting her, Sarah has been writing and recording ever since. At the age of nineteen, Sarah signed to Nashville-based Essential Records and released her self-titled, debut record in 2002.

“Beautiful” from Sarah's debut release proved to be commercially successful and has been featured in numerous TV and Film projects, including the 20th Century Fox major motion picture release, “Just Married” starring Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy.

Sarah’s latest artistic venture, Where It Started features 12 signature songs that highlight Sarah's breathy vocal and emotion as a performer. "Get Yourself Together," the album's opening track, gives an instant taste of the record’s steady theme of clever lyrics and tasteful blend of acoustic and electric guitars. “‘Get Yourself Together’ has really become my personal mantra,” Sarah says. “When we first wrote it, I saw the lyric like I was telling someone else to get it together, but the more I sang it, the more the words began to take on a whole new meaning for me and I knew right away that I was singing to myself.”

The radio-ready “Dedicated” features scenic lyrics paired with an instantly memorable melody while “Unspoken” catches the listener with its well-built, guitar-driven chorus. “Eyes,” a deeply heartfelt love song about love being “shown, not said,” engages haunting chords seamlessly woven with emotionally raw lyrics.

Where It Started shows Sarah's diversity as a well-rounded artist, all while staying true to the unique sound and feel that sets her apart. “This project is a way to better articulate who Sarah is musically,” says Gary Sadler about the record. “I love working with her - always have, and I'm really pleased with this collection of songs. It gives a glimpse into who Sarah Sadler is.”

“There's a lot of me that's out on the table with this record,” Sarah says. “It feels good though because I really believe in this project and these songs. I think that's worth putting yourself out there.”

What a beautiful and thoroughly enjoyable album Sarah has created with her sophomore record. Her lyrics are insightful and thought-provoking, and her melodies are so catchy, you'll be singing them all day...which, in this case, is a good thing! I haven't been able to take the cd out of my player ever since I got it!

Fantastic Album
Sarah Sadler’s second album produced by her father Gary Sadler delicately weaves together a fusion of pop, country and modern folk to create an album of captivating breezy songs all of a superior quality.

Get Yourself Together kicks off this stunning album. It is a striking opening track that showcases Sarah’s soft dreamlike vocals. This song would not be out of place in the ‘pop’ charts. Reminiscent in style and sound of artists like Andrea Corr, Jewel and Tara Blaise this opening number is a lively, catchy track that begs the listener to hear more from this talented artist.

Pedaling Backwards follows in a similar vain to the opening track. This is a clever song about a failed relationship and how if you ‘pedal backwards’ you might discover where it all went wrong. The chorus is catchy and Sarah’s vocals are quite charismatic and infectious on the listener’s ear.

Runaway has a slightly more country feel about it than the previous two tracks. I am reminded of Faith Hill when listening to this track. Sarah’s vocals lose a little of their dreamlike quality on this song and adopt a much harsher sound.

Dedicated is a catchy track with a punchy chorus. This song is about dedicating a song to someone you love. Many of the songs on this album touch on romance or the break up of relationships.

Old Habits starts off with a crackle reminiscent of putting on an old vinyl record. Great music accompanies this song and gives it a real country feel.

Freedom, written by Sarah Sadler, is another great number, which sees Sarah once again losing her dreamlike vocals swapping them for a much more rocky sound.

Unspoken is a fantastic song that would not sound out of place on a Jewel album. Again this is a much more punchy song with a very addictive and catchy chorus.

Eyes sees the mood quieten down once again. This is a gentle song where Sarah’s vocals are allowed to shine through. This is a song about love and how the eyes can show how much you love a person. Eyes is followed by How Does It Feel, which is another excellent song in a similar vain.

Won’t Take You Down is a lovely song which starts off slow and moves up a notch as it reaches the chorus, Sarah’s voice is delicate and fresh in the verses with a haunting dreamlike quality. In the choruses her voice becomes more rocky and powerful without losing her distinctive style and sound.

Overrated is a song about leaving a relationship ‘independence is overrated’ Sarah sings in this song. This song has a heavy backing yet Sarah’s vocals remain dreamy and soft.

Where Do You Begin is the final track on this fantastic album. This is another slow, dreamy song. The chorus is carefully crafted and Sarah’s vocals are of a high quality once again. As this song ends the listener is left begging to hear more.

This is a knock out album full of great tracks. Each and every one of the twelve tracks on this album are brilliant, there isn’t one track that lets the side down. Sarah’s vocals are mesmerising and distinctive giving the songs an added charm. This album has a particularly fresh summery feel to it and with Sarah’s haunting dreamlike vocals this is a powerful and quite intoxicating combination that will hook listeners from the first track right through to the last.
