Watch out guys and gals, there is a new kid on the block, who is already preparing to cross the Atlantic within the first year of her career, to perform in Dallas, Texas, on the 12th October.
Originally hailing from Milton Keynes, Sabine is a singer-songwriter currently living in Oxfordshire and is the UK’s newest sensation. Bringing us warm tones and an emotional performance style, that makes her an outstanding talent on the British Country Music scene.
Sabine was not really from a musical family, but as a child, she used to write stories, and gradually, over the years, this turned in to songwriting. After trying to study piano and violin, she found the syllabus to restricting and felt she needed to do her own thing. So she started singing lessons at the age of 8 and found that this was something she could really get her teeth into.
And now, along with her nurtured songwriting, she has found the melody, which she says always comes first. This would sometimes intertwine with other melodies that have been running through her mind. Creating the mood and leading to the real storytelling. Combining the lyrics and producing a clear narrative that progresses within the song.
In October 2018, Sabine attended a songwriters retreat in Nashville and came back to the UK so inspired and full of confidence in her music. Motivated, she contacted Puzzle Maker Studios in Bristol, where she recorded her first EP, and with excellent production by fellow singer/songwriter Danny McMahon and Andrea Succi, the heartfelt ‘Intertwine’ was released on May 3rd this year.
The first track ‘Love is Not Enough’ was released as a single prior to the EP on April 12th, and was well received with plenty of airplay, including live interviews on BBC Introducing Oxford, BBC Radio Bristol, and a live performance of the single on Red Road Radio. There were also plays on BBC Radio Norfolk and other stations across the UK, across the channel in The Netherlands and across the pond in the USA.
Sabine says that writing and recording the EP was a cathartic experience for her, a way of expressing her feelings in retrospect of a bad break up; something that many of us can relate to.
“Allowing yourself to let someone into your life, to change your life to include them; only to find that they’ve taken over your life and then comes the realisation that they’re not the person you thought they were.”
Through intelligent and honest lyrics, matched with beautiful melodies, Sabine explores her personal experience; which is both painful and sad, but ultimately uplifting and inspiring. With the superb contributions from all the musicians involved, they produced a quality listening experience with the EP, for country and non-country music fans alike.
This young lady is definitely one to look out for in the future, as her lyrics and storytelling are right up there with the best in the business and I’m sure in time we will see her on the big stages with them
Sabine tells us at the BCA that “Although I went to Nashville at the end of last year and earlier this year, where I attended the Tin Pan South Seminar, this is indeed my first trip to the US, where I will be performing an acoustic set in Dallas and also at The Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards, which I was invited to earlier this year. I will also be returning to Nashville afterwards to co-write.”
She went on to tell us that “In December, I will be performing a special acoustic set, ‘Live at The Camden Chapel’ London and I am delighted to announce that I’ll be performing at ‘The Big Comfy Bookshop’ Coventry, in the first part of 2020.”
And more great news is that Sabine tells us she is also looking forward to her next single, which will be released in early 2020 too.
