|The latest from Sara Groves |
arrives October 18th.
I've boldly articulated my unabashed passion for Sara Groves since first discovering her music early last year. Simply put, I believe this Springfield, Missouri native to be the greatest singer/songwriter since Brian Wilson. In fact, even acknowledged modern-day pop messiah Butch Walker cowers and runs for cover like a little sissy whenever Sara Groves enters the room. (Or at least I imagine that he would.) And it gives me indescribable joy to post here that her long awaited new record, Invisible Empires will drop on October 18th. I just purchased,"Eyes on the Prize," the first single off the album from iTunes this morning, and as expected, it's epic! The video clip below is a stripped-down acoustic version of "Eyes" and is perhaps even more powerful than the full-band album version.
Acoustic version of Sara Groves' new single, "Eyes on the Prize."
Sara Groves' 2004 classic, "Less Like Scars."
(Natalie Merchant wishes she could rock the
"Sunday-go-to-meetin'-look" like Sara does!)
After numerous recent failed attempts to be granted admittance to one of her typically sold-out concert appearances (Apparently I'm not such a "big shot" after all), I'm praying that Jesus will give me Sara Groves tickets for Christmas this year!
