In this epiode I welcome Colorado based band Sarah and the Meanies. On tour, they stopped by for a chat and some live performances. A great band and a fun podcast.
Opening song: "Down Deep Down" Sarah and the Meanies
A melting pot of soul / pop / rock, Sarah & The Meanies have emerged from the burgeoning Denver music scene. Fronted by Portland-transplant, Sarah Angela, who has a voice to be reckoned with and an arsenal of powerful songwriting to back it up.
Within a year of formation, The Meanies have headlined Red Rocks Amphitheatre "Film On The Rocks" and were featured artists at Austin's South by Southwest 2014. The band wrapped recording their new single with Bill Stevenson/Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room (Rise Against, Flobots, Gaslight Anthem, Train, Lydia) and the song is now available on iTunes / Spotify .
Hands off the ground and buried in a lifetime of musical obsession, Meanies front-woman, Sarah Angela, has roots that run wide. You might reference the styles of Lorde, Otis Redding, Grace Potter, or Sia; but despite some of her influences, she's got her own unique sound. One thing's for sure, she sings bigger and louder than her five foot frame would have you assume.
