Next Friday, May the 7th, the Stockton-On-Tees based performer Sarah Johnsone (correct spelling!) releases her debut single, 'Tonight' -which can be pre-saved here.
'Tonight' serves as a great introduction to Johnsone, whose sound has echoes of Mazzy Star - a tender, poignant and altogether reflective sound.
About her debut single, Sarah says: “Having the world suddenly freeze gave me this strange surplus of time to really assess the emotions I was going through in life at the time, and I found song writing was a therapeutic way to do that”.
Sarah's influences are wider ranging, from The Beatles and Amy Winehouse through to Aretha Franklin and Paolo Nutini - but it is her own, unique style that really stands out for us. Johnsone's songwriting here is introspective and brave. A song that requires attention.
Being a new artist, Sarah Johnsone is yet to perform in a live environment but it is our bet that her live performances will be just as captivating as this debut single is.
'Tonight' is released on all major streaming platforms on Friday the 7th of May and is available to pre-save here.
