Sarah Borges & the Broken Singles featuring Eric "Roscoe" Ambel
For her Good and Dirty EP, Sarah Borges received some all-star help in the producers chair. I got to work with Eric Roscoe Ambel who has such a great track record Steve Earle, Bottle Rockets, Joan Jett. I had met him through some mutual friends. Hes producing and playing guitar on it. As the release date of the album beckons, look for Sarah Borges to be in her natural habitat. Were going to be on the road a lot. I was on tour with the Broken Singles for about eight years, then I stopped to have my son. The music business has changed so much since then, but one thing that hasnt changed is people still go out and hear live music. Im going to continue to do that, because thats what I know how to do.
Songs from Good and Dirty EP that Sarah is ready to share with her fans include the autobiographical Tendency To Riot, of which she says is about finding yourself at loose ends, and trying to figure out how to go out and have fun. On the other end of the spectrum, theres the emotional wallop of Lucky Us, which in the writers words is a sad story about a relationship ending and how it wasnt the greatest relationship to begin with. Thats the country weeper, I guess you could say.
I think this records a pretty good representation of what I do, Eric Ambel says of Lakeside, his first new solo release in a dozen years. For me, the looser the better. Thats kind of what I feel like I have to offer. And to be loose, you have to be really good. A thing that I learned in college was that you clean up the house before the party, not after.
The veteran singer/guitarist/songwriter/producer known to his friends, associates and bandmates as Roscoe has spent the past three and a half decades building a powerful body of raw, personally charged music thats earned him a far-reaching reputation as a rock n roll original, while keeping him busy in his parallel careers as producer, sideman and collaborator.
A deeply committed rocker as well as a thoughtful, crafty songwriter, Ambel has made enduring music as a solo artist and as a member of the Del-Lords, the Yayhoos and countless incarnations of his own legendary combo Roscoes Gang. His fiery, inventive guitar work has graced landmark albums by everyone from Steve Earle to Joan Jett to Run-DMC. And his production skills have enlivened recordings by a wide range of artists from across the musical spectrum.
