Vocalist Sarah Elizabeth Charles is new to the scene as a leader, but she’s quickly turning heads and for good reason. Her vocals simultaneously sound effortless and full of emotion, with impeccable phrasing and some tricks up her sleeve that are impressive without being flashy. Charles’ debut album, Red, includes a few uniquely crafted originals, re-workings of Haitian folklore, and a refreshingly unusual rendition of "How Insensitive." This adventurous young singer has nowhere to go but up, and her band, described by Charles as "the perfect fit," completes and elevates what is already a distinct and arresting sound.
