Sarah Borges with Andrea Gillis
As cliché as it may be, absence makes the heart grow fonder couldn't be a more genuine statement for singer/songwriter Sarah Borges as she embarks on her next musical adventure, the release of her new album, "Radio Sweetheart." After a year away from pouring her heart and soul into her music, penning her emotions into powerful lyrics, and leaving it all on the stage during rivetinglive shows, her love for her craft grew that much stronger.
"After seven years, the Broken Singles had run its course. It was an amicable breakup. After a year, it hit me like a ton of bricks - I didn't have to stop doing music," says Borges, who under the name Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles released four critically-acclaimed records.
Among the supporters were Rolling Stone magazine, which described the artist as "friendly poprock with bits of twang, rockabilly, and '50 pop"; and The New York Times who described her as "a modern-minded honky-tonker with a retro streak." Paste magazine hits the nail on the head when they wrote, "she has all the good parts of Sheryl Crow's sound without the L.A. pop suckdom."
Andrea Gillis is a powerhouse singer who has been a staple of the Boston music scene for years, performing in such bands as Other Girls, Red Chord, The Rudds. She's got the lungs of Tina Turner, the songwriting chops of Chrissie Hynde and the swagger of Mick Jagger. Her band has opened for Lee Fields, J. Geils and more. She's performed the national anthem at historic Fenway Park before a Red Sox game, and is one of the original performers on the popular Tweed River Music Festival in Vermont.
