Twenty-five year old Sarah Vanell has spent the last six years becoming a part of the Phoenix music scene. During this short time, Vanell has truly come into her own with her unique songwriting and style of expression. In 2005, Sarah entered the world of music with the soft-spoken and angelic debut album, Icarus. The soon to follow sophomore album Fickle would validate Sarah as a true songwriter in 2007, and as television producer Lee Hill describes, “...every note is deliberate, crystal clear. Her lyrics are thoughtful and her vocal range, playful. Its a magnificent combination.” Sarah has just released her next effort, Emotional Discharge, and as Otto D''Agnolo (platinum award winning producer/engineer) describes, “Lyrically, melodically and in most other ways Sarah Vanell is all but Emotionally Discharged! This young talented singer/songwriter is just getting started on what is sure to be an amazing career filled with hit songs.”
In her latest album, Sarah explores her true potential and brings to life not only her own experiences but those who have never or no longer have a voice of their own. In particular, her new track “Sylvia” addresses the moment at which writer Sylvia Plath took her life and the pain leading up to her death. There is a definite change in attitude from Sarah’s previous album Fickle. Her witty and often-times cynical lyrics are only a piece of what she offers listeners, and a vital one at that, but it is her unpredictable yet purposeful chord progressions that truly give them depth. Her recent songwriting is bold in its message and even more so in its delivery, highlighting her progression as an artist. She has not only turned over a new leaf, instead, as Sarah so poetically describes in her new title-track “Emotionally Discharged,” ‘this bush has stripped its leaves all over the place.’
Sarah has proven to the industry that she is here to stay. The immense growth she has shown in her writing from 2005 to now is fascinating and leaves audiences wondering “where will she go next?”
