Every pop era has its defining female pianist: Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Amanda Palmer. For 2016, it’s 25-year-old Sarah Walk – an extraordinary new talent whose music is as confessional as it is gut-wrenching and swathed in emotion.
The rising Minneapolis artist is releasing her moving new single ‘Wake Me Up’ via One Little Indian. A brutally honest tale of addiction that, in Sarah’s words: “…shows the sweetness and temptation of something or someone and also that sense of urgency & panic to get out and escape; to feel trapped by someone’s influence and power over you”.
Sarah Walk returns to the UK to headline four dates this Autumn. Tickets on sale now here.
