Madrid-born, Chicago-raised, Cornwall-based singer / songwriter Sarah McQuaid. With a voice variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate and an engaging rapport which has won over audiences, reviewers and fellow artists, Sarah has already won a 'Lifetime Achievement Award' by the Ards International Guitar Festival in N Ireland.
After meeting guitar legend Michael Chapman at a festival, he offered to produce her fifth solo album ' If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous' and writes "The precision and sophistication of the writing and playing blows me away. I am so glad to be involved".
Can't ask for more than that, really. And I can't say more than I was exceedingly happy when Sarah contacted, at Michael's recommendation, to ask to play The Greys on her album tour.
Sarah McQuaid has emerged from 'relative obscurity' (The Big Takeover) and an under-the-radar (The Vinyl District) profile. This album, on which she expands her battery of instruments to include piano and electric guitar, changes that. Sarah's 'world class talent... burns with a brilliant allure' (Living Tradition) and I look forward to showcasing it right here.
One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift. The Huffington Post
The songs are acutely observed and literate, almost like journal notes set to music. They're measured and tranquil but they're never dull because there is always a sense of restlessness and unease behind the poetry.... And it's all lovely. R2/Rock 'n' Reel
