Wonderful song writing & vocals, keep it coming Sara
The dissonance of Sara's music provides the perfect backdrop for the haunting, severe angst expressed by her lyrics/vocals. Totally original & intriguing work, at times almost painful in its beauty.
Hi, thanks for your support,
great work, very well, good luck for the future...
Keep on rockin!
Who’s Sara Groban?
I’m a 22 year-old independent singer-songwriter originally from Palm Desert, CA. I started playing guitar and writing my own material when I was 13 years old. I recently released my second EP, “Noise in the Attic”. This EP was a turning point in myself as an indie artist because I focused a lot on pop influences and experimenting with different sounds.
How you got started in the music scene?
I always felt like there was a process to finish before I ever stepped foot in the music scene. The most important things were to write material, record it, and promote. I found getting familiar with social networking sites to really provide me with a basis for outside booking inquiries. I would email performance venues with my music links and if they liked it, I got a gig. From there, people start to know who you are.
What are your music influences?
I started playing guitar because my older brother started playing around the time I was in 8th grade. He is an incredible guitarist and like always, I wanted to follow in my brother’s footsteps. After witnessing Josh’s success, I felt more confident that I could consider music as a profession.
“Noise in the Attic”. How was the recording and writing process for this record? How you came out with the album’s name?
“Noise in the Attic” was a fun and sporadic process. It was fun and exciting being in the studio and taking long breaks at the pool. Robbie Waldman produced it. He’s a member of my brother’s psychedelic rock band called War Drum. It was interesting how we were able to piece together the EP with such opposite musical influences.
The title “Noise in the Attic” evolved from a long list of album titles. I wanted something unique that held many symbolic meanings relevant to my life. Attics hold old secrets buried within that still resonate a presence among their surroundings. It’s still and isolated from the house, but it exists. The noise is my thoughts and the attic is my head. It’s a disturbance of thought or a violent awakening to a new beginning.
Are there any plans for the near future?
I am currently living in La Jolla now, so I have begun to play shows around the area. My most recent show coming up will be this Friday August 10th at The Jumping Turtle in San Marcos, CA. I will be playing with a full band among many great musicians such as Roni Lee from The Runaways. The show starts at 8:00pm and is 21 and over. The cover is five dollars.
What has been the funniest moment you have been or took part while touring?
The funniest moment was when I played a show in San Diego where I performed 2 sets. I played three songs during dinner and then three songs about 2 hours later. During the first set, an Australian vacationer was engaging with me on stage telling me how much he liked my music and encouraged me to play more. During the second set, and after he downed a couple shots of whiskey, which I found out about after I got off stage, the Australian vacationer proceeded to tell me I was the worst he had ever heard. He yelled at me on stage saying that I had a long way to go. It was the craziest change up. I don’t think I’ve ever stared down someone so hard or played so loud on purpose. It was hilarious.
Do you feel you are moving on the right direction?
I feel like I am making progress. I just recently started practicing with a backing band that will be playing with me at all my future shows. I hope to tour by next year. I’m learning to enjoy the process and stay focused. Music is my passion and I think it’d be a shame if I had to force myself to do anything else.
