“Sarah represents the vitality of the modern folk era… reverence for tradition, and passion for the future.”
Aengus Finnan, Folk Alliance International Executive Director

 

With her captivating voice and richly detailed songwriting, Sarah Jarosz has  emerged as one of the most compelling musicians of her generation. A four-time  Grammy Award-winner at the age of 30, the Texas native started singing as a young girl  and became an accomplished multi-instrumentalist by her early teens. After releasing  her full-length debut Song Up in Her Head at 18-years-old, she went on to deliver  such critically lauded albums as Follow Me Down, Build Me Up From  Bones, and 2016’s Undercurrent, in addition to joining forces with Sara Watkins and  Aoife O’Donovan to form the acclaimed Grammy winning folk trio I’m With Her. 

In the making of her new album World On the Ground, the New York City-based  artist collaborated with producer/songwriter John Leventhal: a five-time Grammy Award winner known for his work with Elvis Costello, Shawn Colvin, and his wife Rosanne  Cash. Working almost entirely on their own, the two musicians crafted a subtle tapestry  of sound perfectly suited to Jarosz’s lyrical storytelling. In a departure from the nuanced  introspection of her previous work, World On the Ground unfolds as a finely  wrought collection of stories from her hometown of Wimberley, Texas (population:  2,626), presenting a series of character sketches nearly novelistic in emotional scope.  As she inhabits characters both real and imagined—exploring the tension and inertia of  small-town living, the desire for escape and the ease of staying put—Jarosz reveals her  remarkable gift for slipping into the inner lives of others and patiently uncovering so  much indelible insight.

The lyrics are sharp, even cruel; the guitars are low and steady;
and Jarosz’s vocal carriage is uncharacteristically
(and deliciously) unyielding.
