Album Notes

Sarah’s fierce, hungry, generous spirit can take you from laughter through tragedy to an awakening of communion and purpose. A passionate connoisseur of songs, she caresses melody and rhythm with her voice and guitar. She is a remarkable interpreter of the best of today’s folk songwriters as well as of traditional songs.

Reviews of “Dark of Moon” --

“These exquisitely chosen ballads create a spiritual journey through the human soul, with affecting images of darkness and light, strength and weakness, evil and plenty of humor.” – The Boston Phoenix

“One of the best singers around, to my ear… Lets the song create her style.” – Gordon Bok

"I love these versions of my songs -- there is so much mood to this whole record. It all adds up for me and I am just knocked down by the whole package." -- Michael Smith (composer of "Dead Egyptian Blues" and "Crazy Mary")

"Sarah is a singer to be reckoned with. In a folk scene dominated by songwriters it's refreshing to hear somebody doing great songs they haven't written -- and doing them so well. Her a capella gospel stuff is a knock-out." -- Orrin Star

“Most of the well-known songs take on new colors and nuances in her performance… Bob Franke owes Stockwell a great debt for her haunting interpretation of his “I But a Little Girl.” -- Sing Out Magazine

“A penetrating touch….finesses some wonderful songs.” -- New England Folk Almanac

“If you are looking for the one CD that you won’t get tired of, Sarah Stockwell’s ‘Dark of Moon’ is the one… enchanting and very entertaining.” -- Mezlim Magazine

"Stockwell is a riveting, mesmerizing performer who deeply feels the music she plays... My one qualm before listening to "Dark of Moon" was whether Stockwell could capture such feeling on tape. I am happy to report that she has. -- FireHeart Magazine

“… Powerful, often stunning… her voice is a gift.” – Boston Rock Magazine

"Sarah's ability to weave diverse materials with style, resonance, class and just a playful hint of the bizarre, carries you with the joy of a bedtime story and the impact of ancient myths. She will move you, but you will also smile." -- Devyn Christopher Gillette, WMFO, Medford, MA

Performance reviews and audience reaction --

“With her vast and unusual repertoire, Sarah spins a story into a lyrical web of sound that she wraps ever so gently around the listener, moving and changing them. Her presence is as compelling as her performances are unforgettable, awakening the heart and mind of those lucky enough to hear her remarkable song interpretations. She’s my favorite local singer. – Penny Schulz

“Her singing is soulful and deeply felt; when she began to sing I felt the mood in the whole room change.”

“I haven’t fall so much in love with a singer since I first heard Kate Bush.”

“My CD player has become a Sarah Stockwell jukebox. I just can’t get enough of her!”

“Eroticism, grace and a deep, loving sensuality are brought to every note.”

Sarah has been a member of the group MotherTongue, a ritual ensemble group of EarthSpirit, one of the largest and oldest organizations for earth-centered spirituality in the country. She can be heard on the two MotherTongue CDs for sale on CDBaby (links at left).
