At a time when country music needs more standout females to help rock the boat and turn the tides, Sara Syms emerges with a sultry and smoky sound that exudes classic rock influences.
Sara has performed as part of several bands around the country, including Dirty Water, The Ashen, and Darren Gaines & The Key Party. Now, as part of a solo endeavor, Sara has released “Running Away From Me” and submitted it as an entry to be considered as an opening act for Martina McBride and Keith Urban at this year’s Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam.
However, this isn’t Sara’s first solo release. Sara’s previous album, Fade to Blue, was nominated for the IMEA’s Americana Album of the Year and garnered attention in the International Songwriting Contest; and her latest single, “Running Away From Me,” could very well follow suit.
With a deep voice and traditional country instrumentation, Sara Syms could be compared to the likes of Grammy Award winner Brandy Clark. Sara emits a sense of freedom and abandonment, owning her individualism and introducing something fresh to country music listeners. Singing about taking time to enjoy life, take a breath, and not allowing the days to pass her by, Sara infuses country, folk, and rock, creating a catchy and spirited Americana sound that separates her from the mainstream releases on today’s radio stations.
Sara’s single can be found on her forthcoming album Way Back Home, which is slated for a Fall 2015 release.
