Sarah Jarosz to release Undercurrent 6/17
Undercurrent, the fourth album from acclaimed GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter/multi-
Undercurrentwas co-produced by Jarosz and Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Gary Paczosa. Jarosz is featured on guitar, octave mandolin, and banjo with tasteful accompaniment by Jedd Hughes and Luke Reynolds (Guster) on guitar/harmony vocals, and Mark Shatz contributing bass throughout the album.Sara Watkins and Aoife O'Donovan, her bandmates in I'm With Her, make an appearance on the Jarosz/O'Donovan co-write "Still Life." The themes running through Jarosz’s writing range from transitions in life and love in “Early Morning Light” and “Take Me Back,” to nostalgia on “Back Of My Mind.” The joyous and up-tempo “Comin’ Undone,” a co-write with Parker Millsap is an ode to pushing through when days feel heavy.
Since the release of her last album Build Me Up From Bones (2013), Jarosz has toured internationally, acted as a guest host for Garrison Keillor’s famed A Prairie Home Companion and taught at Yo-Yo Ma’s prestigious Global Musician Workshop. Build Me Up From Bones received high critical praise that includedThe New York Times, New York Magazine, NPR, LA Weekly and USA Today, and she performed on CONAN and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in the same week.
Undercurrent reflects the unique way Jarosz combines her early roots-based background with new influences stemming from a recent move to NYC and a diverse group of musical colleagues. The album encapsulates a true artist during the process of personal evolution and discovery, and should firmly secure her spot as one to watch.
