Artist Spotlight: Singer/Songwriter Sarah D releases New Track “Over You”

By on January 3, 2013

Australian born and raised in the humble town of Adelaide, Independent Pop/Rock artist, Sarah D, infuses her two ideal genres through her direct-talking lyrics and memorable melodies; a few of the qualities that fuel Sarah’s music. “I’ve always wanted to sing songs that speak my mind and are gutsy, empowering and relatable, just like my idols”, the 22-year old explains.

Sarah D’s EP will come as no surprise to those who are familiar with her sass, sarcasm and resilience. The EP contains an array of emotionally raw and confronting tunes including “Crying Over the Rainbow” and ”Stand Up” (confronting her partner to ‘stand up’ to his ‘little lie’), “Over You” (an anthem embracing the fact that ‘you didn’t tear my heart apart’ cause ‘I’m over you’), “Gone” (Gathering the courage of ‘Finally walking away to find someone new’), and the lightest of all tracks “Make The World” (Making the world ‘revolve around me’ to ‘show you I’m the one’). Such sentiments displayed throughout Sarah’s songs are enveloped in cheerful dance friendly beats and bright, open choruses (produced by Colombian producer, Andres Torres) making them appealing to her audience.

Youngest child of three, Sarah D grew up learning resilience from a young age. With both parents migrating from Poland to Australia, earning their place in a foreign country was nothing short of challenging. “I really admire my parents. They have created an amazing life for themselves. They are the fueling force behind me, encouraging me to live my dream and share it with others”.

Having moved to Los Angeles to study her craft, Sarah D wrote her first song “Gone” and recorded her first single, “With You” (Written by Cody Wood) for an independent feature film, Starting From Scratch, featuring Elizabeth Sandy and James Huang. In addition, Sarah D worked with producers and DJ’s including Jeff Silbar (“Wind Beneath My Wings”) and Uberjack’d (Ministry Of Sound) and received the 2012 scholarship to the VocalizeU Art Intensive where she worked with industry professionals to assist with her development as an artist.

Sarah D is now focusing on the promotion of her debut EP through live performances, college radio play and various publications. With future plans on a debut album release to follow, Sarah D continues to write and collaborate with as many songwriters, musicians and producers possible!
