ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The CD format includes a 6-panel folding case and an 8 page booklet filled with liner notes, classic photos, and lyrics. Images of the CD case can be found at sarimusic.com.
This album is a collaboration between Sari and folk legend Debbie Green. Andersen’s writing and performances on this debut album are reminiscent of the vocal gifts of Sarah McLachlan and of Sari’s godmother Joni Mitchell, the rhythmic sensibilities of Rickie Lee Jones, and the poetry of Bob Dylan. Sari is backed by top West Coast musicians who work with artists such as Melissa Etheridge, Jackson Browne, Steely Dan, Sting, Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin, Ry Cooder, Sinead O’Connor, Train, David Crosby, and Jennifer Warnes.
This album is dedicated to Debbie Green, who inspired its creation and was central to its production, composition and instrumentation. Debbie’s musical brilliance is evident on every song and her vocal harmonies can be heard on the last track, “Listen to the Rain”, a song written by Sari’s father, Eric Andersen.

“Sari’s album is a masterpiece, it’s full of wisdom and startlingly original in every aspect. You have to get it!” -Brad Green
“I love listening to Sari’s album.” -Joni Mitchell

Biography by Julie Bergman:
Sari Andersen’s songwriting career began in earnest in her late twenties when, as an art student, she was challenged to do something creative in a medium she’d never before attempted. She wrote her first songs and performed them from the stage of a Los Angeles club to a stunned audience of friends and strangers, who wondered from where this apparently seasoned singer/songwriter had appeared from. The silken voice, the rhythmic acoustic guitar playing, her charismatic stage presence and lyrical song craft were not an overnight transformation for Andersen. In fact, this daughter of musicians Eric Andersen and Debbie Green was no stranger to the stage. Her father rose to prominence as a gifted songwriter of the 60’s folk era, and many of his songs, such as “Close the Door Lightly Before You Go,” “Violets of Dawn,” and “Thirsty Boots,” became classics. Debbie Green, who was an early member of the Cambridge music scene, played guitar, bass, keyboards, and sang backing vocals on tour or in the studio with artists including Andersen and Hoyt Axton. Debbie was a key force in the 60’s folk revival. She was amongst the original folk music pioneers, researchers and interpreters, always searching for a great song. Inspired by her mesmerizing voice and songs, Joan Baez adopted Debbie’s arrangements for own first album.
Sari grew up surrounded by folk roots music players, and exceptional singer/songwriters. As a result, she was singing backing vocals in concerts and at music festivals, sandwiched on stage between Joni Mitchell and Bonnie Raitt, before she was out of college. Once Andersen laid down her paintbrushes to begin writing and singing her own material in earnest, there was no stopping the torrent of songs that burst forth from the gates.
