ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Do not miss hearing this amazing young singer/songwriter as she launches what is sure to be a long, vibrant career!

At 25 years of age, Sara Beck is an artist who is already beginning to distinguish herself as an explosive vocalist, a thought-provoking writer, and a captivating performer. Originally from the Baltimore area, Beck grew up performing with her family in the mid-Atlantic region and has been making music throughout the Southeast since relocating to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University in 1997.

December 2002 marked the release of her first full-length album, Open Window. Beck penned eight of the album's eleven tracks and co-wrote two others with frequent collaborator, Park Chisolm. The material is a departure from her debut EP(Sara Beck, ©2000, also available on cdbaby); the album showcases a maturing writer delving into brighter, more melodic territory while retaining a keen eye for the world around her. Producer Eric Fritsch contributes a lush landscape for Beck's colorful lyrics and captivating vocals.

Evident on both Open Window and 2000's Sara Beck is an intensity that has been grabbing the attention of Nashville fans for two years. Beck's vocal style alternates between a sultry smoothness similar to that of contemporary jazz vocalist, Diana Krall, and a soaring clarity reminiscent of Alison Krauss. Always, Beck sings with a subtle expressiveness, approaching slow tunes and rockers alike with a combination of control and abandon.

Her influences range from her family's Country/Western roots to musical theater and a cappella singing. A fan of Etta James, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson alike, Beck's work is rooted in a variety of traditions. Her songwriting has been recognized in songwriting competitions sponsored by Gibson Guitars and Tennessee Parks and Greenways, and her easy, engaging presence on stage continues to draw new fans with every performance.

Fantastic CD. So many songs that get stuck in your head.
I may not be a completely objective reviewer, but I love this CD. I put it on in my CD and motor all the way to work. I love "Above Ground" and "Coming Down". They get always get stuck in my head, in a good way. I also love "Severn River", a great slow ballad. Sara Beck has a lot of talent as a songwriter and singer. I wouldn't be surprised to hear one of her songs on the radio one day.
