Los Angeles California country-blues singer-songwriter Sarah Dashew has released a new single in anticipation of the release of her new full length album : Roll Like a Wheel to be dropped next January 22nd.

You can still hear James Taylor and Janis Joplin — but there’s clearly a Paul Simon, Graceland-era spirit to the proceedings: The rhythms of her city have combined to imprint themselves onto her album. “More than any other city has done before…” Dashew pronounces. That and finding true and everlasting love.
Roll Like A Wheel was engineered by Eric Lilavois (Saint Motel, My Chemical Romance) and will be released next January.

Lovely, danceable, enduring…
