Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles
As rock phenoms go, Sarah Borges has never been easy to pin down. Since bursting onto the national scene in 2005 as the lead singer of the Broken Singles, she hasnt allowed a speck of dust to settle on her sound or her story. Instead, the Massachusetts native has just kept on moving and shaking.
Shes gone from frontwoman to solo act, to frontwoman again. Shes deftly navigated the weird road that winds from emerging artist to veteran performer. Shes made seven records and racked up countless touring miles. Shes collected shiny things, including an Americana Music Award nomination, multiple Boston Music Awards, and song credits on TV shows Sons of Anarchy and The Night Shift. Bands like Los Strait Jackets and Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys have brought her out on the road with them. Cowboy laureates Steve Berlin and Dave Alvin have lined up to collaborate with her.
As if all that wasn't fodder enough for a compelling rock n roll narrative, in the last few years Sarah has been married and divorced, become a mother, and gotten sober. Its a whole lot of moving and shaking for someone who just turned 40, but dont expect to find her pumping the brakes anytime soon.
