After making a premiere on Billboard on Wednesday “Earthquake” the latest track from the upcoming LP titled “Road To Rome” from SARAH POTENZA is now streaming everywhere.
Coached by Blake Shelton and eliminated in the live playoffs of the eighth season of “The Voice (US)” the Nashville based singer-songwriter, Janis Joplin tribute-act and all-round powerhouse businesswoman has, since the competition, released a critically-acclaimed debut solo LP “Monster” in 2016.
Road To Rome, her second solo LP, will be released on International Women’s Day, March 8th.
The R&B, soul and blues album is co-written by Potenza, with her husband Ian Crossman and friend Justin Wiseman, and produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin (Indigo Girls, Lucy Wainwright Roche), and recorded with a female-heavy cast of confederates; The record isn’t merely her own story. It’s the story of all artists — particularly women — who remain the minority within a male-dominated industry.
Sarah recently performed alongside acts such as Andrew McMahon and The Wilderness, Matt Nathanson and Plain White T’s on The Rock Boat XIX and will join Melissa Etheridge, Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole and many more on The Melissa Etheridge Cruise III March 31-April 7
We had a listen to “Earthquake” :
This belter blasts out with earth-shattering power and consequence but it’s not overly dramatic. Sarah’s redemptive voice is filled with accent and emphasis… and it’s the brilliancy of her performance that creates the impact. This is a gold-medal aria for a troubled age.
