SARAH BROWN ~ The Great Heart Robbery
Sarah Brown, possessed of a special way with heartfelt pop songs, knew she needed to spread her feathery wings on her second album, The Great Heart Robbery. Following the release of her eponymously titled debut in 2006, Sarah was maturing as a songwriter and musician and felt a strong desire to take her art onto a higher plateau.
After scoring a hit with the single Hands in 2006, including winning the Juice TV award for Video Of The Year, and supporting such musical luminaries as Jamie Cullum, Tim Finn and Greg Johnson (she also performed aboard an Air New Zealand flight as part of Fashion Week's 'Party In the Sky'), Sarah was intent on raising the stakes, especially since she planned to self-release her new album. Now in full control of her destiny, it was time to develop her sound and expand her ambitions.
Sarah struck out in three distinct directions, at least geographically. Firstly, she spent the summer of 2007 in an isolated cottage in the Marlborough Sounds to begin the writing process for a new album. Accessible only by boat, the cottage provided the ideal creative space for Sarah to get out of the city and back to her roots.
Marlbourough New Zealand songstress Sarah Brown releases her sophomore albumThe Great Heart Robbery.
Produced by Tony Buchen (Gin Wigmore) in Sydney’s 301 stu¬dios with the help of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra the album ebbs and flows with the flavours of blues, gypsy, & Americana with a European twist.
