New Music Video and More Tour Dates

HDR_tent-2-Edit-2

A personal message from Sara about her new video and tour:

Hello!

Some of you know that I’ve spent most of my summer playing festivals and opening for Jackson Browne and Dawes but you probably don’t know that I also made a video for “When It Pleases You”, a song off of my new record.  The song is about being on the reliable end of an unbalanced relationship and in thinking about what sort of video we’d make for it, I got to thinking about how we first encounter this sort of dynamic when we are kids playing. The concept for the video quickly moved from being set in a playground to a circus. The director Peter Zavadil found a traveling family-circus on its way through Connecticut and they allowed us to film for a full day there thanks to their hospitality.

You can watch the video now exclusively on CMT.com and on their brand new website CMTEdge.com (it will be on my sites later this week)!  Check out some cool photos from the shoot here.

I’m also going back on the road with Jackson and will be doing some of my own headlining tour dates.  You can find all the dates here.

Hope you enjoy the video and see you on the road soon!
