SARAH BELKNER RELEASES ‘WITH YOU’ SINGLE ON 24 OCTOBER
+ ANNOUNCES INTIMATE SHOWS
FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM TO BE RELEASED 2015
Sydney based singer, songwriter, arranger and composer, Sarah Belkner, triumphantly comes out from behind her much-praised previous moniker ‘Miss Little’, to announce her forthcoming first studio album – the first single, WITH YOU.
Released on 24 October, the first single to be lifted from the album could be described as a modern day love song; A glimpse into a situation many people find themselves in in relationships. The frustration of outside distractions and the day to day mundane when all anyone really wants is to just to be loved and to be with that person without complication.
To support the single release, Sarah is stepping out from her duties in Lanie Lane’s touring band, for her own magical run of shows. She’ll be hitting the road nationally around Australia over the next few months, following successful gigs in both London and New York just last month.
Funded by an Australian Council Of The Arts New Work Grant and a successful Pozible crowd funding campaign, the upcoming album deals with human themes of questioning, truth, confusion, realisation, loss and relief. It is set for release early 2015.
Sarah has toured and played with the likes of Lanie Lane, Brendan Maclean, Ngaiire, Elana Stone, Abby Dobson and Darren Percival. In 2010 she won the Crowded House International song writing competition and was invited to perform with the band at the Hordern Pavillion.
