Jarosz plans to release single in November
Wednesday, October 13, 2010
– Bluegrass artist Sarah Jarosz will release two new songs titled "The New 45" on Sugar Hill on Nov. 2.
The songs were recorded in Nashville on the 19-year-old's summer break from New England Conservatory in Boston where she is a sophomore. "The New 45" combines the original composition My Muse (to be included on her upcoming full-length release) plus Bill Withers' Grandma's Hands. Both tracks are previously unreleased, and this will be the only chance for fans to purchase Grandma's Hands. Vinyl pressings to be made available at select outlets and on Jarosz's website later in the month.
Jarosz released her debut, "Song Up In Her Head" in June 2009. A contemporary improvisation major at NEC with a focus on vocal performance, she has balanced a full school schedule and national performances, while continuing to write and collect material for her sophomore release - due out spring 2011.
An Austin City Limits performance in which she's paired with Steve Martin will air on Saturday, Nov. 6. My Muse is one of the songs featured on ACL.

For those of us who have been around long enough to remember browsing through long racks of LPs at the local record store (remember them?), one of the oldest tricks in evaluating an album from a new, unknown artist is to scan the liner notes to see who the sidemen are - the principle being, you can judge an artist by the company he or she keeps. In the CD age, that's not always possible since the credits are often shrink-wrapped away on the inside, but in the case of Sarah Jarosz, it's a ...
