Album Notes
You can now download NAKED ON THE INSIDE and Bolen's sophomore album, LATE NIGHT CONFESSIONS, at

"I listened to (HIDE), and then I listened again, and again. This is a great debut, lots of heart and super production. Pay attention to Sarah...." -Chris Frank,

"This sounds like a woman I'd like to have a beer with." -The Spectator Weekly

NAKED ON THE INSIDE, released in May of 2001, is the first album by Bolen, who has been performing live ever since she was 15 years old. NAKED ON THE INSIDE displays the delicately soulful side of Bolen's emotional spectrum. Songs like "Hide" and "Play Along" use layers of harmony to highlight the disappointment, frustration, sadness and underlying hope that curse through the veins of this album.

Bolen has toured the east coast extensively, sharing the stage with the likes of Alix Olson, Kris Delmhorst, Pamela Means, the Butchies, Edie Carey, and Chris Pureka. Her second album, LATE NIGHT CONFESSIONS, has been garnering critical acclaim since its 2002 release. Says Jennifer Layton of, "Fans of Pamela Means and Ani DiFranco should buy Sarah's new CD right now, put it on the stereo, and brace themselves."

Loved every minute...
I bought this CD on a whim and I'm damn glad I did. One can't help but empathize with Bolen's music. I think what I like most is her ability to be complex and yet subtle. "What would you do if you loved someone, who loved someone other than you?", she asks in Play Along. I'm not sure, but then, neither is she. Bolen doesn't pretend to have the answers. Her music is incredibly real, as if she's singing a conversation she could easily be having with her best friend. Buy this CD. You have no idea what you're missing.

Good, catchy songs
This album is well written and just all around great. Sarah's voice is just great on here and her guitar playing is awesome.


this is a great cd. sarah is innocent, honest, and charming. her voice is flirty and inviting, great buy!


This CD was great!
I bought this CD on a whim, knowing nothing about the artist, now I can't stop listening to it! It plays in the office everyday.

alicia b

Perfect for a rainy day
I fell in love with this CD immediately. It's perfect rainy day, post break-up or long road trip music. The harmonies she pulls off in songs like Play Along, Hide, Holding My Breath, etc. are reminiscent of the Indigo Girls. Highly Recommended...


I heard these songs live and had to buy the album. I'm so glad I did. The songs themselves are great, but this recording is truly amazing.


Just the right sound and lyrics, this artist has everything!
I loved the lyrical content as well as the wonderful sound of Bolen's songs. Highly recommended!


Amazing. Aptly described "siren-like acoustic harmony", this CD reminded me of some of the Indigo Girls earlier albums. "Play Along" is one of the best songs I've ever heard. The production is dead on with the lyrics, something any musician can appreciate. I haven't heard the new album yet, but if it's half as good as this one, I'll buy it.


pleasantly surprised....
I love Sarah's voice....and this album speaks to me. I can't wait to learn all the words.
