Sara Melson’s insightful, inspiring lyrics and arresting, distinctive voice led Yahoo Music to choose her as their “New Buzz Artist,” calling her “one of the most fearless singer-songwriters on the planet.”
Her timeless songs blur boundaries between genres, and her skills as a pianist, guitarist, writer, and singer are evident throughout. Previously, A Million White Stars (2013) was selected for an iTunes homepage feature, as was The Beachwood Canyon Sessions EP (2012). Sara’s self-produced debut album Dirty Mind was released on Nettwerk Records (2008); her songs have appeared in numerous films & TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy and a national multi-spot Chevy campaign. At home performing solo or with full band, she has shared the stage with Ben Folds, Juliana Hatfield, Ben Lee, Inara George, Neil Halstead, and Lissie, among others, and has sung backing vocals for Moby on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Dandy Warhols, and Mojave 3 on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
She has just completed recording a new collection of songs, helmed by producer Rick Parker (Lord Huron, Ravonettes, BRMC, Joseph Arthur) and featuring members of Badflower and Lost Boy Crow. Release date TBA.
