You can forgive folks for being stumped as to what to call Sarah Borges’ brand of music when algorithms and critics alike are hard-pressed to find the quickest way to complete the phrase “sounds like___”.
Conduct even a quick Google search, and you’ll find that Sarah Borges has been dubbed everything from an Americana darling to a roots rocker to a cowpunk to the next Sheryl Crow by tastemakers as diverse as The New York Times and SiriusXM Outlaw Country Radio.
Sarah’s unbridled joy at making music two decades into a storied career comes through loud and clear in her latest long player “Love’s Middle Name”. Her third studio record with the Broken Singles, it’s a muscular 10-song cycle that pulses with gritty, unfettered emotion.
Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (Bottle Rockets, Steve Earle & the Dukes, founding guitarist for Joan Jett & the Blackhearts) helmed the recording and provided banshee-like lead guitar. He completed the LP in four sessions and without fussiness. “Roscoe has zero interest in fancy. He likes to capture the beast in its tracks and that suits me just fine” Borges says.
Sarah will be on board for SiriusXM’s “Outlaw Country Cruise” in January and join Chuck Prophet and the Mission Express for WMNF-Tampa’s “Tropical Heatwave” cruise to Cozumel in February. All in preparation to rock the Sunday Roadhouse in March!
