Sarah Blacker Band
Award-winning multi-instrumentalist, Sarah Blacker’s forever goal is to “take an audience on a journey” via song, story, and connection. To her, “songs save lives” and have consistently helped her to move from darkness into light, when exploring the ebbs and flows of life.
Also a Board-Certified Music Therapist, Blacker isn’t shy to explore the soulful depths of human existence within her lyrics, and she regularly offers a cynical sense of irony tending to struggle juxtaposed over hope in her songs. Blacker is a one-of-a kind performer who’s newest single, ‘Beautiful Murderer’ has been described as “gorgeous, evocative and eerie,” and while she is regularly compared to Joni Mitchell with her stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks vocals and unique harmonic twists, she arrives with a side of Classic rock n’roll.
Regularly joined by Aaron Z. Katz of Percy Hill on percussion and harmonies, Phil Selsnick on keys/bass and vocals, and Mark Lipman on vocals, familiar songs find their way from structure into improvisation and the listener from inner peace to gut-punch grooves.
Named ‘Female Performer of the Year’ in the New England Music Awards, a Boston-Music Award nominee and CBS Boston ‘Artist to Watch,’ Blacker has also performed alongside Jefferson Starship, America, Paula Cole, Richard Thompson, Zack Deputy, and Sara Bareilles to name just a few.
