Album Notes
"The Twin Ports folk singer picks up the torch carried by the balladeers of decades past: Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, and Peter, Paul, and Mary.

Her themes are familiar-peace, love, freedom, social justice, and-dare we say it?--Saving the world.

That stuff became fodder for jokes at Republican cocktail parties decades ago, but cynicism can't touch Ms. Thomsen. Her music is simply too beautiful.

Even when she skirts the edges of cliché by getting too issue-specific--anti-war and anti-nuke lyrics--she carries it through.

Her voice is lovely yet strong, held aloft by her faith and conviction.

She's everyone's guide and mother, a goddess who, instead of teetering on a pedestal, stands before you in blue jeans and looks you in the eye.

She could make Conan the Barbarian drop his sword and collapse blubbering.

Say what you will about the practicality of her vision, it's the light we all head for, even though we have no idea when we'll finally arrive."

Sarah Thompson has an exquisite vocal quality and an ability to write music that speaks to me. I listen to both of her CD's. I was first drawn to Fertile Ground her first CD, and I find her second, By Breath to be so very attractive that I will be waiting impatiently for for the third.

Fertile Ground & By Breath, we truly love them both!!

One of my favorite CDs!
This is my favorite Sara Thomsen CD although all her music is gorgeous. By Breath is inspiring song after song with her beautiful voice and provacative lyrics. Anyone who is concerned about the choices humans are making will be comforted and motivated by this CD.

My friend sent me a Youtube video of "By Breath," and I immediately had to go buy this CD! I love it, and I wish I had discovered Thomsen years ago!!

Uplifting Songs of Light!
The reviews are right on the mark! Both of Sara's CDs sing to the best in all of us. I wish her music could be heard and felt in every home across America (and the world) because her wisdom is deeply moving and timeless.


I have a friend heading to heaven soon and the Irene song is oh so perfect!
The songs are blended together so harmoniously. The voice lifts me up and then joins in me in despair. Yet the tone is one of hope and reality. We all are taking that journey one day but how grand to imagine the loveliness of those angels lifting us onward!

Daily inspiration
Listening to Sara Thomsen's music is like meditation. It connects the truth deep inside with the oneness of all and leaves me feeling whole and strong. Thank you, Sara,and thanks to Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!, for letting us know about your music.


Your music touches me deeply...
I've only had the opportunity to listen to most of the songs (though I've replayed By Breath to the point that I sing right along with you.) The spirit and force of love that comes through moves me. Inspires me to put my own poetry to music. Thank you for extending yourself into the atmosphere via your heart and your music and touching this soul in Ohio.


Music my heart was hungry for
I've been searching for music about peace, connectedness, and spirit and this CD is it!! So powerful and incredibly beautiful. Thank you so much!!


By Breath
