Sydney based singer, songwriter, arranger and composer Sarah Belkner triumphantly comes out from behind her previous moniker ‘Miss Little’ to release an album that is simply her being herself.

Documenting her quest into bravery to uncover some truth about human nature, Sarah's unique piano derived songs are fleshed into blended electronic acoustic landscapes. They are then iced with her eloquent orchestrations and timeless voice that is filled with emotional clarity and honesty.

Funded by an Australian Council Of The Arts New Work Grant and a successful Pozible crowd funding campaign the album deals with human themes of questioning, truth, confusion, realisation, loss and relief.

Sarah has been a musical explorer from an early age immersed in the wonder of songwriting, classical composition and arranging. She grew up in the shadow of a dormant volcano overlooking the ocean in New Zealand and won many awards for her choral compositions.

Her talented band are Evan Mannell (Lior, Bertie Blackman, Faker, Check My Machine) on drums and MPC, Neal Sutherland (Pivot, Bertie Blackman) on bass and synths and Matt Keegan (The Beautiful Girls, Canyons) on electronic saxophone and clarinet. The album is co produced by Sarah and her talented engineer husband Richard Belkner at his studio Free Energy Device in Sydney. The vocals have been produced by the one and only Paul Mckercher (Augie March, The Cruel Sea, Sarah Blasko, Magic Dirt, Andy Bull).

Sarah has toured and played with the likes of Lanie Lane, Brendan Maclean, Ngaiire, Elana Stone, Abby Dobson and Darren Percival. In 2010 she won the Crowded House International song writing competition and was invited to perform with the band at the Hordern Pavillion.

“A pop artist who resists the urge to crunch silly beats into it. Assured, fragile, tender, sexy.”
— The Melbourne Age

“It is clear she has something valuable to contribute to the music industry ”
— Sunday Sun Herald

“Sarah was the winner of a competition we ran to come up with a melody and words to suit a backing track we had recorded. Her offering impressed us for its unusual lyrics and interesting melody. She also possesses a very strong distinctive voice”
— Neil Finn

ABOUT THE VENUE:

The Newsagency is an incredible little venue in Sydney. Yes, it used to be a Newsagency but now thanks to the genius of Alison Avron it is a pumping little 50 capacity BYO-creative- inducing venue.

THE CONCEPT:

This is the second year of the Newsagency Sessions on Wednesdays in Nov and Dec which sees Sarah Belkner team up with another great local artist and they both do a set each then collaborate on a duet together. The duet is kept a secret until the night and is professionally recorded at “Free Energy Device Studios” and then released online the day after the gig for your at home pleasure.
