about

FROM S.E. WARD:

"Leaving" is a collection of songs written over the course of a few years and focus on the idea of transitions and being in a liminal space. It is meant to be as much of a goodbye to somethings as it is a greeting to others. "Leaving" was recorded in early 2017 at Legitimate Business in Greensboro, NC.

FROM BULL CITY RECORDS PRESENTS:

I first became aware of S.E. Ward through show flyers advertising some of my favorite Chapel Hill and Carrboro haunts. The more her name popped up, the more I became intrigued. Whispers of her songwriting talent began to ripple through the music community. Our mutual friend, Al Riggs, officially introduced Sarah and I after a stack of stunning demos were sent over to the shop.

On the Leaving EP, Sarah's drifting, introspective lyrics are appropriately buoyed by a beautiful and haunted music that's surprisingly well-balanced with a heavy-ish rock slant. There's even a low dose of a psychedelic fuzz and drone, so it's no wonder I was so drawn to it. Being somewhat taken with this batch of songs, I'm ecstatic that Sarah and her band were interested in working with BCRP. Fans of Sharon Van Etten, Magnolia Electric Co., Damien Jurado, Hand Habits and Angel Olsen take particular notice! This band has places to go, so make sure you put one of their upcoming shows on your calendar. Thanks for reading and listening and please don't forget to support our artists. -chaz.
