The ARIA and 21 Golden Guitar award winning artist recently signed with Universal Music Australia on a world-wide deal and released her new album RAINDANCE on April 12.
Speaking of the first single Raindance, Sara shares “Raindance is a song of hope. It also sends a message of coming together through dance and song. Music is great therapy and while our nation waits on rain let’s dance and sing this drought away. As a songwriter, we can often find ourselves writing stories with a heavy heart whether it be about ourselves or of others. So with regard to the drought, and the endless hardships of Aussie farmers, I felt it time to write a song of hope. A song that can lift out spirits during the nations wait for rain.”
A power-house of contributions saw the album produced by Sara’s long-time collaborator and producer Matt Fell at Sydney’s Love Hz Studios, with Shane Nicholson engineering the drums and guitar tracks at his Central Coast Sound Hole Studios.
Continuing the impressive array of contributors, Colin Hay features as a vocal collaboration on the song Next Year People, originally written and recorded by Hay. Others featuring on the record include Sara’s brother Greg Storer, and country artist Fanny Lumsden.
Joining Sara is Pete Denahy, another one of Australian Country music's most loved performers.
When asked what concert-goers can expect from her show Sara said “I intend to pack my set with some better-known songs from my previous albums but of course I am also really looking forward to performing a few from Raindance.
