Title - 'One' (Rock Ridge Music)
Artist - Sarah Miles
Sarah Miles is one of those young ladies that the music scene has always loved. She is open, honest, fresh, and a storyteller of the highest order.
'One' (her debut full length) is an incredibly-crafted honest folk-pop project, which it's been said was entirely inspired by the simple decision to follow her heart. Well, that may be so, but Miles has already toured with Teddy Geiger, Tony Lucca, Ingram Hill, Matt Duke, and Pat McGee, so her music dues have already been paid. And as much as she may get compared to such artists as Sara Bareilles, Miles is her own real deal, trust me.
The first track is 'Middle Of Nowhere,' a song that immediatly showcases her vocal tone and songwriting skills to the max. The gentle-at-first, but full-on-after 'Just So You Know' is next, with the trippy 'Bad Intentions' following closely along behind.
The beautiful 'You're Not' is backed by the gently strummed 'Stand Up,' with the pop bounce of 'Break in Two' along next. The gentle sway of 'Meet Me There' is the soundrack to any young girls early encounters with boys, with 'One' and the sad ballad of 'Grey' along next.
The beautiful, perfectly orchestrated album comes to a close with another gently-flowing track in 'Take the Lead' (sung with Matt Duke) and then finally the pop powerhaus 'I Don't Wanna See You.'
