The KAFM Radio Room presents Sarah Siskind and Travis Book at 8 pm on May 12. Sarah Siskind is seen as one of today's most eclectic songwriters with songs covered by Alison Krauss, Randy Travis, Bon Iver, the Infamous Stringdusters, April Verch and more. Krauss released both Siskind songs as singles, and in 2008, her rendition of "Simple Love" was nominated for a Grammy.
In 2009, Sarah stepped into the artist spotlight with her own album SAY IT LOUDER (Red Request Records/Thirty Tigers). Although she has been making records since the tender age of 14, (including the 2002 release, COVERED, which featured world-renowned guitarist Bill Frisell), SAY IT LOUDER is making the biggest splash among fans and critics alike. Bonnie Raitt calls it "a masterpiece," while "Big Al" Anderson (NRBQ) calls it "one of the best records ever made." Bon Iver, the indie rock sensation who has been covering Siskind's material live, states "Sarah's music changed my life." Bob Boilen of NPR was so crazy about SAY IT LOUDER that he featured it on NPR's "All Songs Considered," his exclusive video-cast "Tiny Desk Concert" series, and in June, the title track was named NPR's Song of the Day. A fourth NPR showcase was featured in the fall of 2009 when Sarah was interviewed and performed live on "World Cafe Live" with David Dye.
In October, 2009, SAY IT LOUDER was named Americana Album of the Year in the Nashville Music Awards, where the other nominees were Buddy and Julie Miller, Justin Townes Earle, Chuck Mead and Todd Snider. Armed with a striking vocal sound of her own and sharp musicianship, the respect Sarah has garnered as a songwriter and an artist in Nashville has quickly spread across the country and beyond.
