SARAH BLASKO BRINGS ‘I AWAKE’ TO LIFE
The captivating Sarah Blasko announces a European tour in April 2013 in support of her new album ‘I Awake’.
Brilliant, bold, unpolluted and enthralling are just some of the adjectives used to describe Sarah Blasko’s fourth studio album ‘I Awake’ on its release in her native Australia. Self-produced and recorded in Stockholm and in Sofia, with the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra, ‘I Awake’ is intense, intimate, unsettling and beautiful and sees Sarah continuing to push her creative boundaries. As ‘fragile as a nervous breakdown’ yet, with its startling honesty and willingness to plumb the deepest thought and the darkest shadow, the record reveals the mettle and spirit of an indomitable artist.
Touring ‘I Awake’ will take audiences on a tumbling and soaring journey. Joined by her band and a string section Sarah will also perform songs from her previous repertoire including 2010’s ‘As Day Follows Night’ which received critical acclaim in Britain from a broad range of media including Q, Mojo, Uncut, Vogue, Grazia and The Independent.

Whether it’s a spiritual, existential or romantic struggle, the failures and the will to survive are realised in every note. It’s not
the addition of an orchestra per se that makes I Awake a great record, it’s Blasko’s ability to etch their presence into her
wounds, temper her weaknesses with their absence. It’s brave and the pay-off is wonderful. FASTERLOUDER
