Female Performer of the Year in the New England Music Awards (2013), Boston-based 2013 Boston Music Award nominee for Singer/Songwriter of the year, Sarah Blacker, was also a nominee for Songwriter of the Year, and Song of the Year for 2013's single, Shiver in the New England Music Awards, 2014. Her heart-felt version of songwriting has been coined, "Sundress rock" and she was recently called "one of the brighter artists to grab our attention recently" by national Roots publication, No Depression. The Boston Herald's Jed Gottleib said of her, "Sarah Blacker makes some of the most interesting folk music in Boston mostly by making folk the starting point and reaching out toward rock, Americana and prog". She is a prolific singer/songwriter currently in the studio recording her 3rd full-length album, (Blacker has penned 2 full-lengths and 2 EPs in just 4 years).
In just 3 years, she has garnered these accolades, performed at SXSW, CMJ and a sold-out tour of Germany, and has toured extensively with reggae-pop star, Mishka, and shared the stage with America, 10,000 Maniacs, Rusted Root, Paula Cole, The Wood Brothers, Sara Bareilles, Jason Isbell, Carbon Leaf, and Anais Mitchell to name just a few. She is a business savvy, hard-working musician, who also spends 8 hours a week (in the spring, fall and winter) as a Music Therapist for adults in a psych hospital and with children with Asperger's. Her entrancing voice, poignant and emotionally charged lyrics, and mature songwriting has this artist on pace to go nowhere but up.
