"Horizon Line" will be celebrated with SARAH BLACKER and her band on January 5th, 2024 at CLUB PASSIM in Harvard Square Cambridge, MA and on February 10th, 2024 at The Music Hall Lounge in Portsmouth, NH. 

Award-winning multi-instrumentalist, SARAH BLACKER'S forever goal is to “take an audience on a journey” via song, story, and connection.  

To her, “songs save lives” and have consistently helped her to move from darkness into light, when exploring the ebbs and flows of life.

SARAH BLACKER, a Psychotherapist for adults and a Board-Certified Music Therapist for neurodiverse teens, isn't shy to explore the soulful depths of human existence within her lyrics, regularly offering a cynical sense of irony juxtaposed over hope in her songs and when telling stories and jokes, live.

"Horizon Line," SARAH BLACKER'S new studio EP is raw, stripped down and vulnerable, just the way she wanted it to be. 

Recorded (mostly) live and mixed at Boston Music Award winning producer, Sean McLaughlin’s 37’ Productions studios, it was performed and co-produced by BLACKER and her husband, Aaron Z. Katz (Percy Hill, the Dejas). 

Featuring three songs about inner strength, the limitless parameters of time, being true to yourself, and the chaotic state of the world, "Horizon Line" is BLACKER'S most soulful and raw release, to date.

SARAH BLACKER is a one-of-a kind performer who’s newest single, "Beautiful Murderer" has been described as “gorgeous, evocative and eerie,” and while she is regularly compared to Joni Mitchell with her stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks vocals and unique harmonic twists, she arrives with a side of Classic rock n’roll.

Regularly joined by Aaron Z. Katz of Percy Hill on percussion and harmonies, Phil Selsnick on keys/bass and vocals, and Mark Lipman on vocals, familiar songs find their way from structure into improvisation and the listener from inner peace to gut-punch grooves.

Named "Female Performer of the Year" in the New England Music Awards, a Boston-Music Award nominee and CBS Boston "Artist to Watch,SARAH BLACKER has also performed alongside Jefferson Starship, America, Paula Cole, Richard Thompson, Zack Deputy, and Sara Bareilles to name just a few.
