Most you who know me know what a profound role music has played in my life. I spent most of my life as a professional musician (drummer/vocalist) and while I no longer play professionally, I can't imagine my life without music. I listen to all types of music (you should see my CD & vinyl collection!), and am always thrilled to find someone/something new and fresh to add to my play list.
Sara Lynn and I "ran into" each other on Twitter, and after a couple of tweets, I checked out her music, and ended up adding one of her song widgets to my blog. I really enjoyed her song "I love this ride". It sort of echos my motto in life, which is why I chose that song widget. :o) So we continued tweeting and one thing lead to the next, and here we are with this awesome giveaway. Now before we actually get to the giveaway, I want to give a quick review of Sara's newest CD, "Don't Call Me Angel".
Prior to listening to "Don't Call Me Angel", I had only heard the one song "I Love This Ride", so I was somewhat under the impression that Sara was a Country/Rock/Americana style artist. Well, she is that, but she is also a whole lot more. She is a fabulous singer songwriter whose music crosses over many genres. Sara's music is not something you can easily pigeon hole, which makes it a treat to the ears! Her songs/music have her fabulously strong vocals, interesting lyrics and some kick-ass musicians backing her up. I hear everything from Pop/Soul/Jazzy-Blusey and of course the Country/Rock flavor when I pop in this CD for a listen.
Sara says she is an "artist taking a bit of a risk" with this eclectic album. But if you are anything like me - you'll likely agree that the variety in her songs on this CD really work. Let's face it, we all have different tastes at different times, and this album really celebrates that!
Now for the fun part. Sara has graciously offered to giveaway a fabulous fan pack which include a T-shirt and the CD "Don't Call Me Angel" to two of my awesome blog followers!!. How cool is that!!?
