Patriot Ledger // Radio 92.9


“…with “In Waves,” she’s more confident and aggressive in almost every sense, from the heavier, barroom rock sounds heard in album kick off “Way Like Water” to the emotional depths of “Hotel Halls,” a melancholy waltz, or the pained soul in the strings-laden “Ease the Burn.” – Patriot Ledger

I Am That Girl Feature

The super cool blog, I Am That Girl recently interviewed me about my new album.

Their tagline: “A community, a support system, and a movement inspiring girls to LOVE, EXPRESS, and BE who they are.” So honored to be a part of their series!

They said, “In Waves is a departure from Sarah’s previous projects, both sonically and lyrically. The album is a mix of influences from Americana to soulful pop, and the lyrics are incredibly honest and personal.”

Some more great press has come in for ‘In Waves’ and the Cross Country tour I’m currently on! Grateful that folks are enjoying the new music! 

HughShows: First/Last in Pittsburgh, PA said:
“The record is filled with skillful rhythm guitar, piano and ukulele, and sung with a uniquely soulful voice which is much bigger than the size of the artist it comes from. Read on

Elmore Magazine / Big Take Over Magazine / Boston Herald

The reviews keep rolling in and we’ve been getting some great feedback on ‘In Waves’ which will be released Tuesday May 19th worldwide via
ILS Music Group / Caroline / Universal Music Group!


Elmore Magazine previewed ‘It Shows’ & said: “Showcasing Blacker’s sugary vocals, featuring both a smooth soprano and equally appetizing alto, “It Shows” is a gorgeous ukulele serenade set to relaxing and romantic tropical instrumentation…“It Shows” is a lush vacation into Sarah Blacker’s voice, heart and mind.”


The Big Takover previewed ‘Break Out’ & said: “In Waves artfully spans rock, pop, indie folk, and Americana, fused together with her signature vocal sound and stacked vocal harmonies. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!”

And the Boston Herald called the two opening tracks of the album, “two of the sharpest, smartest, most staggering songs of 2015″ !

Bluegrass Situation / MusicBox Pete

My song, ‘Exhale’ off of ‘In Waves’ was featured on the awesome blog, The Bluegrass Situation!

They said: “Blacker plays guitar, ukulele, and piano, infusing her indie folk tunes with a soulful, pop-tinged sensibility. Blacker gets rather rootsy, sounding a bit like Amanda Shires in the process.”

Boston- based music blog, MusicBoxPete had some things to say about the new album too!


“I was blown away with what I heard from Sarah … what sets her apart from her contemporaries is her musical diversity, and her ability to dabble in other genres and tempos that shows off her true staying power. An immense talent that we’re guaranteed to hear more from in the future.”
