Jarosz builds up to new album
Tuesday, June 18, 2013
– Sarah Jarosz will release "Build Me Up From Bones," the third release from the 22-year-old artist on Oct. 1 via Sugar Hill Records.
"Build Me Up From Bones" was recorded in the midst of Jarosz's final semester at the New England Conservatory where she graduated with honors and touring. Following her mid-May graduation, she flew straight to Nashville to put the finishing touches on the album.
The Texas native penned 9 of 11 tracks, and while Jarosz previously tended to write and sing in third person narratives, her new material connects in a much more personal way. She also covers Joanna Newsom's Book of Right-On and Bob Dylan's Simple Twist of Fate.
Gary Paczosa co-produced the disc. The recording included Alex Hargreaves (fiddle) and Nathaniel Smith (cello) with whom Jarosz has been touring with since 2010. As the recording progressed, other guests were added, including Dan Dugmore, Darrell Scott and Chris Thile.

CD reviews for Sarah Jarosz
No longer just a startlingly talented young bluegrass musician, on her latest, Sarah Jarosz shows her growth both as a person and an artist. This is her first recording done while she wasn't in either high school or college, the first since her move to New York City three years ago, and the first time she has included only new original material.
It may be the middle one of those firsts that had the most influence on the end results; there is little to no traditional bluegrass material here »»»
Build Me Up From Bones
Aging has worked wonders for Sarah Jarosz because she sounds better and better with each release. On her third disc, the Texas native, who occupies a musical turf straddling bluegrass, country and acoustic music, Jarosz proves to be more confident than ever in her vocal delivery. There's some bite in Fuel the Fire with a lot of banjo, courtesy of Jarosz herself, plucking going on all around here.

Follow Me Down
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 »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
