Later on Saturday evening, we went out to the Raven Studio in Amagansett for Sara Ford's "Falling Out Of Time" CD launch. Sara's voice is unlike anyone else's we've heard live before and it will touch your heart just as much as the words to her songs will. I look forward to Sara Ford's next concert in the Hamptons area. -- Angela Williams - hamptons.com


Local resident Sara Ford has released her first CD entitled "Falling Out of Time..." The CD reflects Ford's consummate piano playing skills, as well as a vocal range and inflection that is both haunting and powerful.

The obviously personal and emotional revelations Ford makes in almost every track portray an honesty and maturity that is both refreshing and sometimes familiar.

This is lyrically a CD for grown-ups and Ford lets the listener in on a few old secrets that we may all harbor.

Musically, Ford's voice and piano playing range and skills immediately relax the listener which helps because the lyrics requre that one listen attentively. --Eileen Casey - hamptons.com

Bio

“Sara Ford’s voice is unlike anyone else’s we’ve heard live, and it will touch your heart just as much as the words to her songs will.” -- Angela Williams, hamptons.com

Eileen Casey of hamptons.com wrote, “[Sara’s CD Falling Out of Time] reflects her consummate piano playing skills, as well as a vocal range and inflection that is both haunting and powerful.”

Given her age and experience, Sara Ford’s bio reads more like a novel than a short story and certainly illustrates the often said but not so often acted on truism that it’s never too late to realize a dream.

The project couldn’t have had a more apt beginning. In early winter of 2006, Sara’s son Sam, then embarking on his own album, suggested that they jam together. Soon Sara was writing her own songs, which took her back to her 20’s when she’d wanted to be a singer/songwriter, following, albeit humbly, in the footsteps of all those wonderful 60’s and 70’s folk-singers whose music she’d sung for years around the campfire in Wyoming and in her living room at home. It wasn’t to be…at least not then. Now, though, the circle has turned and this long-held dream is being realized. It started with the demos she recorded in the back bedroom of her home then moved to the living room of the parents of Alex Sterling, one of her engineers. There she recorded on a Steinway baby grand. Next came Alex's basement studio, where she was joined by several gifted musicians and where most of the mixing was done. Finally, she recorded the vocals in A Bloody Good Record, a sharp little studio in Queens.

In between then and now, Sara published some poetry, wrote 5 novels (unpublished), several short stories (one a finalist for Glimmertrain Press) and a screenplay, which won the Columbine Award at the 2006 Moondance International Film Festival. She earned her keep as a teacher for 25 years then as an educational consultant, training teachers to teach kids how to read. She has lived in England, Germany, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Wyoming, Vermont, Seattle, New York City and Bridgehampton, NY.

Says Sara of her music: “All the experiences I’ve had, the places I’ve lived, the people I’ve known, the mistakes I’ve made…they’re all in my music. The songs come from a deep place, and I hope that, while personal, they speak to the universal.”
