Sara Dee / Press

“Dee makes it clear she’s got pipes. Her vocals ... are mostly beautiful, retaining a twang of that rawness she possesses; but I swear at one point she almost ascends classic Disney movie levels. The song immediately transports listeners to another land ... It’s the exoticism impressed by the violin that wisps your thoughts away to that far-off place, wherever it is. An almost eerie polka gives way to a piano- and organ-based jazz-blues beat to carry your finger-snapping feet down the sidewalk ... and God only knows. I mean, that might be where the song takes people... Maybe it takes you right where you are, home; here. At any rate, that’s exactly where you’ll have a chance to catch up with Ms. Dee (if you’re still behind).”

“I chanced upon a fundraiser block-party ... a Mardi Gras-flavored event ... I’m talkin’ bouncy-waterslide-castles for the kids, booze for the adults... and what would Bourbon Street shenanigans be without music? For that matter, I can’t imagine what local music would be like without Sara Dee. Dee’s performance will likely have raised not one, but two eyebrows at how talented she and her small folk band are... a singer/songwriter with an acoustic guitar and a voice strong enough to clean the rust off of nails. She sings songs of life, trial, and hope with a vocal range that runs from beautiful and soft to severe and raw. Pretty meets gritty. Tribulation finds hope. “I don’t have to create the pain and the heartache in the music, but I have to deal with it,” ...and deal with it she does, by not sparing life’s challenges any unjust mercy by skipping over them... but rather taking them and singing them into a happier, more promising, more hopeful form..."”

“Singer-songwriter Sara Dee is one busy gal these days. Currently, she’s balancing a job as a music therapist and working hard at recording her first full-length record. [Dee] has been putting in a lot of time into the production of her record and still making the rounds at various clubs around Los Angeles. "In the past, I was just super into live shows and figured I would just play out all of the time. I now realize that I have to get into the studio and do justice to my songs … instead of just having bedroom tapes ... I have been producing and having a big say into the making of this album. Joel Paul Geist [from Sea Palace Studio] has been a great help with making this record come together along with me... [he] comes from more of a rock background than me, but has taken on the challenge of working outside of that realm... I love working with other artists. I usually have an idea of what I want but let the musicians do what they feel as well.”
