Biography

When Sarah Met Sally

It makes sense that two of the South's finest grassroots singers had to hoof it all the way to Hollywood to find each other. In a sea of indie rock bands, the unabashedly Appalachian voices of SALLY JAYE and SARAH ROBERTS make for a stunning anomaly. Teaming up not only made sense, it felt destined. Soon after meeting, they borrowed the name LADIES GUN CLUB from an actual ladies' gun club in North Carolina and, happily for all us displaced Southerners, commenced to makin' bona fide roots music in the midst of Tinseltown. There's an exponential factor that kicks in when these richly nuanced, haunting voices pair up. Deftly supported by like-minded players, LGC's self-titled debut EP is a study in graceful restraint. Banjos, fiddles, slide guitars, mandolins, horns, glass percussion, accordion and the like take shifts weaving elegant, sometimes dark, textures around the Ladies' standout duets and solos. The result is an eclectic mix of 6 original songs, each casting its own brand of eerie.

Two outstanding vocalists with a deep understanding and appreciation for music that’s as equally dark and haunting as it is hook setting. Peter Grumbine, NO DEPRESSION

Lyrics

Lost Celia

Written By: Sarah Roberts

Every night she’d make believe that she could fly off through the mountains
Over oceans
One morning she awoke unsatisfied and left this town in
Search of motion
Oh there she goes
going where the wind blows
oh there she goes
go, go
Since she was just a little girl she never thought she needed one man
to make her happy
Then she met him on a boardwalk in Brazil, felt like a woman
drunk and set free
Oh there she goes
going where the wind blows
oh there she goes
go, go

Oh Celia come home
darlin no, don’t go
With pink flowers in her long black curly hair she said her vows with
a man she just met
With no daddy and no past, no looking back, she blindly jumped in
tried to forget
Oh there she goes
going where the wind blows
oh there she goes
go, go

Oh Celia come home
darlin no, don’t go
Though he never saw the writing on the wall, he felt with each day
her growing dismay
and as fate would sadly tell, she left him cold on one June night
before sunrise
Oh there she goes
going where the wind blows
oh there she goes
go, go

Oh Celia come home
darlin no, don’t go
