Sara Storer was born to sing about real people, honest emotions, and the land she loves. She is one of Australia’s most-loved singer-songwriters, a multiple Golden Guitar winner whose crisp observations of the Australian landscape and its people provide the solid foundation stone for her music.
In November, the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter not only took out the converted ARIA Award for Country Album of the Year for her latest offering, Silos, the album was also nominated for 6 gongs in the Country Music Awards of Australia (The Golden Guitar Awards) including Female Artist and Album of the Year.
Sara is one of Australia’s most-loved singer-songwriters. She has seen all the beauty, joy and heartbreak this land can bring and so it is that her crisp observations of the Australian landscape and its people provide the solid foundation stone for her music.
Without doubt one of the finer moments from the album is My Diamond, which is nominated for Song and Vocal Collaboration of the Year. It was co-written with her five siblings and performed as a duet on the album with her older brother Greg.
Sara herself explains; “My Diamond represents my songwriting in so many ways. It has contributions from all my siblings as is about our dad. When it’s real the song already has all the colours, the emotions, the story line. Dad taught us to love each other for who we are and to look out for each other.”
Another of the songs that took centre stage at the nominations event was Purple Cockies, a song inspired by Sara’s friend and sometime musical collaborator, John Williamson.
Sara Storer was born to sing about real people, honest emotions, and the land she loves and the attention that these latest accolades will bring to her latest work will no doubt further solidify her position as one of our finest musical poets.
