Sarah Blacker

Sarah Blacker on tour 2011Sarah Blacker’s music is a unique blend of acoustic rock, folk, and jazz with stand-out vocals and quirky yet catchy songwriting, that set her apart from other female singer/songwriters in her genre.

For an independent singer/songwriter who has been in the game for only 3 years, Sarah Blacker has a resumé that comes across as impressive to anyone. Recently nominated as singer/songwriter of the year in the Boston Music Awards, a current nominee for Female Performer of the Year in the New England Music Awards, and currently in the running for Music Video of the year by Limelight Magazine, Blacker was also nominated last year as Female Performer of the year in the New England Music Awards, singer/songwriter of the year by Limelight Magazine, and won My Rural Radio’s Artist of the Year Award.

This December, her song, ‘Smell of Caramel,’ was placed in the intro of the hit MTV TV show, Jersey Shore; the artist found out through text messages from friends while holiday shopping. Over the summer, Blacker was selected for a showcase slot at the historical Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and up to the present, she has supported America at the Lowell Summer Music Series, The Wood Brothers, Anais Mitchell, James Montgomery, Zack Deputy, Carbon Leaf, and Paula Cole too. She will also be supporting Livingston Taylor,

Rusted Root and touring with the Alternate Routes over the next couple of months. Blacker was also called “one of the brighter artists to grab our attention recently” by No Depression, the national Roots Publication.

In addition to touring both nationally and internationally, Blacker is a Music Therapist for children and adults with special needs. She facilitates groups for individuals with Cerebral Palsy & Autism in a school setting, as well as inpatient adult psych groups in a prestigious Boston hospital. She is also an Ambassador for Ernie Boch's "Music Drives Us." This spring, the prolific Sarah Blacker is slated to put out her 4th release, "Precious Little Things," which recently hit 100% of its funding goal through PledgeMusic, where the artist offered things like handwritten song lyrics and even ink drawings in exchange for pledges from her fans. With this release, Blacker plans to reach an even wider audience who will hopefully relate to her heart-felt, intrinsic lyrics. Her songwriting is stronger than ever, and her confidence, high. “I write songs to make sense of my life, and I hope that through listening to my songs, others will be able to do the same.”
