Sarah King inhabits the dark side of Americana, creating gritty murder ballads and feminist anthems anchored by her atmospheric voice and rhythmic blues guitar. Her music is for the lost and lonely, when the twist of a knife is what keeps the pain at bay, and a song can lead to redemption. Her debut EP The Hour, produced by Simone Felice, marks her stunning arrival with "Nightstand" named 2020's #1 Best Song in Vermont by County Tracks. King's live show crackles with energy and devil-may-care attitude, earning her support slots for The Steel Woods in 2021 and a place on 2021's Vermont Roots Roadshow, the Philadelphia Folk Festival in 2020 and 2021, and the Black Bear Americana Music Festival in 2021.
