She’s been compared to the likes of Cat Power, Feist, Sharon Van Etten and Bat for Lashes and she’s yet to release her debut album – meet Sarah Walk, the rising Minneapolis-born singer songwriter whose extraordinarily talent has won her praise everywhere from The Sunday Times to BBC6 Music’s Lauren Laverne.
Those who’ve had the privilege of watching her play live alongside her band can testify to Walk’s phenomenal skills on the keys and powerful vocals that exceed those of the recorded versions. Her songs draw on experiences in her own life and are as confessional as they are gut-wrenching and swathed in emotion.
After a successful tour with fellow artist Laura Mvula and an appearance at Dot-to-Dot Festival last year, 2017 shows no signs of slowing down for the Berkeley College alumni. “Still Frames” tells the enthralling story of a devoted gay couple’s life together, from their first meeting to their heartbreaking demise. It’s an incredibly poignant tale, relatable to everyone, and portrayed gracefully through Walk’s soaring vocals and confessional lyrics.
“It’s an insight into those moments that lead you to reflect on what you have built with someone and the process of having to let go of something that you care deeply about.” Walk explains, “With the video I wanted to touch on all of those things with a strong narrative. An insight into those moments that lead you to reflect on what you have built with someone and the process of having to let go of something that you care deeply about.”
