Album Notes
Sara Chodak is Vassal. She is a 16 year old Philadelphia-based songwriter who is driven by emotion and the world around her. She is an eclectic mix of grungy punk, traditional folk, and rebellious rock. She ties her music together with just an acoustic guitar and raw lyrics. The stories woven throughout her songs derive from inspiration from the people she sees, the places she’s been, and the all of the unembellished emotions she has felt. Sara was invited to the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference (NERFA) in 2016, and was honored to be one of the first to receive the Grassy Hill Youth Scholarship. She was then invited to play at the 56th annual Philadelphia Folk Festival as apart of NERFA presents Young Folk.

For Sara, every day is a new adventure with her guitar. In 2019, she went on her biggest one yet and released her debut EP, ‘Matter.’ It shares six songs of anger, sorrow, triumph, and constant revelations that she is discovering and writing about more and more each day.

Here's a review from Brian McTear, an engineer that helped Sara create her debut EP:

“Sara, Jackie and I made Sara’s record with the intent of preserving the fact that her perspective on life and emotional reality were special, particularly for her age, and that we didn’t want anything, especially unnecessary production, to obscure that. I’m so happy with the results! - Brian McTear, Miner Street Studios
