Combining the darling finesse of songstress Regina Spektor, the heart-melting honest lyrics of Ingrid Michaelson and the seductive honey voice of Norah Jones, emerging songwriter Sara Lewis creates her own scrumptiously irresistible world that is pretty impossible to not fall in love with.
This New York-based sweetheart has just completed her debut album “Birds Without Cages”, recorded and mixed in a cottage studio in Woodstock NY by Julie Last, a Grammy-winning magical engineer who has worked intimately with greats like Joni Mitchell, Yoko Ono and John Lennon, among countless others. The songs speak of a series of heartbreaks in a way that is so honest you start experiencing her stories as if they are your own. Her voice is a throwback to 20’s jazz greats Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, but with many hints of modern influences as mentioned above. She is a perfectly harmonious blend of old and new.
Sara began her singing career as an 8-year old in her hometown church choir in New Jersey, around the same time that she started piano lessons. Ever since, music has remained a near and dear part of her life and over time she has discovered songwriting to be the most favorable and personable of mediums. She has landed in New York by way of Vermont to pursue her music dream, performing regularly in venues like Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room and Pianos.
