"While the vocals and music draw you in immediately, it's the songwriting that will keep you coming back again and again. Sarah Dearlove is a natural storyteller, and each of the song's little quirks are perfectly crafted to tell those stories." Adam Jenkins, Fatea Magazine
The London based singer-songwriter Sarah Dearlove is passionate about electro piano driven songs and she plays with elegance and flair. Her performances are influenced by Tori Amos and Kate Bush. Picture this: a teenager dancing in a Birmingham kitchen to Wuthering Heights feeling empowered and liberated. Transformed. Out of the proverbial domestic scene and into celestial bliss. Sarah Dearlove’s songs take us on a journey through her mind, her highs and lows and love and loss.
Born and bred in Birmingham, as a child, Sarah performed regularly as a classical pianist and sang in choirs performing at many venues including the prestigious Symphony Hall. She moved to London with no job or nowhere to live and started her career as a singer-songwriter in Proud Stables, Camden. Having established herself in the local area of Sutton, South London, Sarah co-hosts Open Mic Events at Merton Abbey Mills, Belgian Brasserie and Brasserie Vonne Balham, performs at Wallington Music Festival, Carshalton Eco Fair, Sound Lounge and a residency at The Claret Cheam. In addition to writing and performing, Sarah is a vocal coach, piano teacher and classroom music specialist. Since her London journey began, Sarah has had the privilege of performing at the Royal Albert Hall amongst many other prestigious venues.
Single releases from Sarah's debut album have been played several times on BBC Introducing Radio, BBC Surrey and Sussex, BBC West Midlands, Amazing Radio and London Live TV.
"Songbird and Hammergoddess. Two titles I love. Not my own. When I write songs they are a product of my life experiences. When I perform them I am vulnerable. When you listen to them, they are yours. The lyrics express the past present and future. Times you might relate to. Times you might wish to relive or forget. I write these songs for me and I share them for you."
