what musicians and singers have been your inspiration? what inspires you to write songs? who are your favorite singers/bands now?
hi! oh, these questions are tough, but good ones! i've been greatly inspired by so many artists-mostly pop vocalists with SOUL! Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Sara Bareilles. I also admire artists who are able to sing with more subtlety like Ingrid Michaelson, Feist, Jewel, M. Ward, Connor Oberst, Ben Gibbard, Taylor Swift, Ryan Adams and are still able to portray so much emotion without such a huge sound.
I'm inspired to write by my emotions. Some experiences and ideas and feelings are too strong to keep inside. They sort of haunt me for days and I wander around trying to capture the poetry of it all in a notebook. When I have time I sit down with my guitar and if I'm lucky, it all melds together :) Right now I am listening to tons of new stuff thanks to Spotify. Mostly Jessie J, Gotye, Ingrid Michaelson, Melanie Laurent, The Civil Wars, Bonnie Raitt, and Beirut.
Hi Sarah. My question has two parts.
Is there a Sarah Nisch swimsuit calendar that is coming out with the album? And if not, are you as angry at Albert Pujols as the rest of people from St. Louis?
Considering destiny--which I believe to be a choice of directions on any given path, and the dealing with obstacles that arise on said path--where do you see life in 10 years? Ideal destination?Sadie Hart & the High Vibes responded on 01/16/2012
