I’m putting the finishing touches on a new recording project, which I’m very excited about. It’s the product of some very fruitful and symbiotic collaborations. We recorded live at Lucy’s Meat Market with Pete Min (Meshell Ndegeocello) and overdubbed, mixed and mastered at The Sandbox Studios with Rick Parker (Lord Huron, Raveonettes, Jeremy and The Harlequins, BRMC).
I am blessed with a phenomenal new band: Danny Hechter (Badflower) on guitar, Sean Sobash (Lost Boy Crow) on bass, Koi Anunta and Kerenza Peacock (Adele, Hanson, Madonna) on violin, and Jonas Streffer on drums.
We’ve also shot several videos! Stay tuned for this new music to come out into the world soon. We’ll be announcing shows later this year.
“Sara Melson’s cover of the Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations”… is immersive, lolling ahead in a haze of distortion, and its moody piano sets the piece’s tone exceptionally well… The song fills the auditory cracks even better than the original, lending the piece a quaintly rustic feel… a triumph of melancholy.“
