The First LP 2009
The First EP 2008



Gardening, Not Architecture is a musical collaboration between singer/songwriter Sarah Saturday and producer Beau Sorenson that started in 2004 (with a few songs they recorded at Beau's apartment in Madison, Wisconsin). Almost exactly three years later, in March of 2007, the duo rejoined forces to record their first 'official' release: a four-song ep entitled "The First EP," which they self-released for free through the website ( as well as for sale on iTunes and other online outlets. The only hard copy versions of "The First EP" were 49 signed and numbered CDs with handmade sleeves and inserts, as well as a limited run of tour edition CDs, which were also handmade and included the music video for "If You Only Knew."

Gardening, Not Architecture completed a three-week self-booked west coast tour in March, featuring Sarah as the sole performer playing bass and using a laptop for backing tracks. The live performance revolves around a handmade LED "lightwall" with a light show that is choreographed to each song.

Sarah and Beau returned to the studio in May to record the duo's first full-length album entitled "First LP," with a release date of September 8, 2009. The duo recorded nine new songs over the course of eight days in Chris Walla's (Death Cab For Cutie) studio in Portland, OR. The first full-length will include three remixed songs and one rerecorded song from the first EP. The album will be self-released and available online and at shows.
