"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." - Sarah Dearlove
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 #CuriousSongStories take us on a journey through her mind, her highs and lows, love and loss and into a curiosity cabinet. A lover of historical oddities and their ancestry and the stories behind them, Sarah introduces the audience to mysterious curios and weaves their stories into her own to make a unique musical performance.
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 anywhere to live and started her performance career as a singer-songwriter in Proud Stables, Camden. In addition to writing and performing her own songs, Sarah is a vocal coach and piano teacher and leads The Dearlove Community Choir. At present, her performances are livestreams to audiences all over the world on Instagram @sarahdearlovemusic and Facebook. Sarah is looking forward to getting back to in person live performances, watch this space!
Music has helped Sarah to be kind to herself. She has been composing music and writing songs since she was a child and her teaching career meant her love of music was focussed on others and she put everything into helping children to feel the power of music. After 13 years of educating children in music, she decided to spread her wings and start a new chapter. Even though this has been a huge leap (and a global pandemic with lockdown happened!) this has been the most positive and exhilarating time of her life. This songbird has wings. Sarah Dearlove’s #CuriousSongStories have new feathers and she would like you to come fly with her.
