Sugar Hill Records is pleased to announce the recent release of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Jarosz’s new album, Build Me Up From Bones. Already a seasoned veteran of both studio and stage at just 22 years old, the young virtuoso debuted her third album, Build Me Up From Bones, last week on Sept. 24. The GRAMMY®-nominated artist delivered the album to much acclaim, having established herself as a critics’ favorite and remarkable talent—especially at such a young age—with her two previous records.
Here’s just a taste of what the press have been saying about Build Me Up From Bones:
“With ‘Build Me Up From Bones’ (Sugar Hill), her third album, she moves past precocity toward the full bloom of artistry: the singing is more deeply self-assured, and the songs are grounded in truer emotional terrain.”
– The New York Times
“The lavishly talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist shimmers and haunts…”
– USA Today
“Her latest is more organic, a trio setting that emphasizes the value of space. The songs breathe. From the perspective of composition and structure, the music is more complex and nuanced, too. Jarosz’s voice, warm and elastic, rings out strong and clear.”
– The Boston Globe
“Jarosz’s acoustic vibe is equally at home in a hip West Coast coffee shop, a bluegrass festival, or a suit-and-tie concert hall.”
– Christian Science Monitor
“Her playing—intricate and highly melodic is a major presence on the largely acoustic ‘Build Me Up From Bones,’ but never overshadows her well-crafted songs…”
– Country Weekly
“A gifted multi-instrumentalist…the 22-year-old Texan emphasizes her evocative songwriting as strongly as she does her instrumental technique…these new songs are among Jarosz’ more personal as well as her most eloquently austere.”
– CMT Edge
Build Me Up From Bones
was co-produced with Sarah’s longtime collaborator – GRAMMY® award-winning engineer and producer Gary Paczosa. The concept was to keep the focus of the album on a trio configuration of Alex Hargreaves (fiddle) and Nathaniel Smith (cello) that Jarosz has been touring with since 2010, building a tasteful instrumental backdrop for Jarosz’s warm and expressive vocals.
The album was recorded in the midst of Jarosz’s final semester at the prestigious New England Conservatory (where she graduated with honors) and a rigorous touring schedule. Now set to embark on an exciting new chapter of her life, the songs on Jarosz’s newest release are a compelling portrait of an artist coming into her own.
In support of her new album, Jarosz will be touring across the country this fall. For the most up-to-date tour information, please visit SarahJarosz.com.
