The Real Sarahs
As rising stars in the west coast Americana scene, The Real Sarahs have begun to distinguish themselves as master harmony singers and evocative songwriters. With an organic sound that enchants and uplifts the spirit, The Real Sarahs share their special gift of vocal synergy.
This duo creates magic with voices in harmony, acoustic instruments, and the energetic connection between artists and audience. Embracing many genres of music, you are likely to hear threads of folk, jazz, blues, and country running through their songs. Singing from the stories of their own life journeys and experiences, their original music is honest, evocative and heartfelt. With the onset of regional and international touring in 2018, you can expect their voices to ripple out, touching more hearts and minds and carrying their message and influence to an ever broadening field of music lovers.
Americana artist David Starr possesses “a compelling voice, something truly special, both accessible and passionate” (Elmore), that has been honed releasing nine albums, touring internationally, and opening shows for esteemed artists such as John Oates, The Steel Wheels, Survivor, The Guess Who, and more.
His prestige extends beyond the stage as well, having launched Starr’s Guitars in Little Rock in 1998, then relocating to Cedaredge in 2001. Today, the store is such an institution that Cedaredge proclaimed the musician’s birthday as David Starr Day in 2016. The year before, Starr released the album Love and Sabotage with special guests John Oates, Richie Furay, Dana Cooper and Steve Cropper. South and West follows acclaimed EP, The Head and Heart, produced by John Oates. The release of South and West coincides with the grand opening of the Grand Mesa Arts Center in Cedaredge, an intimate event space brought to fruition through strong community support.
Starr helped design the space in order to attract traveling musicians and exhibiting visual artists to Southwestern Colorado. Starr divides his time between operating his guitar store and touring internationally to attentive, appreciative audiences.
