House Of Mercy - Sarah Jarosz
You will be very pleased to know that our next LCM featured artist multi Grammy award nominated Sarah Jarosz is in town tonight performing at the wonderful Union Chapel. Support comes from the lovely Hannah Saunders and Ben Savage. If you are going I'll see you there. Sarah released her latest album 'Undercurrent' in May and our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a live version of one of the excellent lead songs called 'House Of Mercy'.
Sarah is an American singer-songwriter from Texas. Her first album, 'Song Up in Her Head', was released in 2009 and the tune 'Mansinneedof' was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Country Instrumental Performance. Her second album, 'Follow Me Down', released in 2011, received a "Song of the Year" nomination from the Americana Music Association's 2012 Honors and Awards. Her third album, 'Build Me Up from Bones', was released on September 24, 2013 through Sugar Hill Records. 'Build Me Up from Bones' was nominated for Best Folk Album at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, and its title track was nominated for Best American Roots Song.
She has been called "a songwriter of uncommon wisdom" by the Austin Chronicle. Sarah has been interviewed by NPR and Rolling Stone and described as a contemporary-bluegrass prodigy. A New York Times reviewer wrote that Sarah is "widely regarded as one of acoustic music's most promising young talents: a singer-songwriter and mandolin and banjo prodigy with the taste and poise to strike that rare balance of commercial and critical success." Her 2013 release, 'Build Me Up from Bones' has already been dubbed by Stereo Subversion as an "organic masterwork...a warm, nuanced collection that wraps and enchants the listener", as well as "her boldest work yet" by WNYC Soundcheck.
