Australian songs from the rural heartland
"Sara has found a way to make country music that doesn't play on hokum…folk-pop music that doesn't sound sweetened, and includes the earthiness that is, surprisingly, so rarely heard in local country"
- Sydney Morning Herald
Singer-songwriter Sara Storer follows her heart to make music that matters to her.
With a record seven Golden Guitars at the 2004 Tamworth Music Festival and as 2007 winner of the Heritage Song of the Year with "Land Cries Out", there is little doubt that Sara Storer is a unique talent.
Her songs are filled with stories of lives and loves of those on the land. But there is a much broader musical palette that shows her to be a contemporary of Missy Higgins and The Waifs as much as her country comrades.
Following her 2007 tours with The Waifs and The Songbirds and recently with international star, Suzanne Vega - Sara and her band debut in Noosa with a knock-out performance including songs from her newest album Silver Skies.
