Though new to the Chicago music scene, Sarah is no stranger to gripping an audience with her powerful voice and lyrically beautiful music. A classical piano background coupled with a love for American folk and roots music has led Sarah to writing songs that are daring yet familiar. She writes lyrics that are all at once raw, smart and intimate, while wrapping them in expressive melodies and adventurous chord changes. It's within these songs that she dares question aloud spirituality, morality, relationships, societal standards, her place in the world and where the line lies between right and wrong.

Having graduated from Berklee College of Music, Sarah intended to make her mark in LA as a film composer. While she was well on her way to doing so, she ended up in the Midwest by an unexpected twist of fate. After months of working remotely on various independent games, advertisements and films, she found herself feeling unfulfilled and yearning for more. "I came to Chicago without knowing anyone in the music scene. I had to figure out who I was as a musician and songwriter, as well as who I was as a person. Somehow that feeling of loneliness and exploring the unknown thrust me into my own self discovery and got the creative juices flowing. I'd like to think a lot of good has come from it," Sarah says. The result of this creative struggle is an arsenal of new songs accompanied by musicians from an ever-expanding network. Since late October 2014, Sarah began playing in Chicago proper, all the while gaining new fans and attracting the attention of Chicago music's best.

Sarah's debut EP, "Borderland", is about the space between the known and the unknown: the reminiscing of what's left behind, the anticipation of change, and the challenge of transition. With the completion of "Borderland" set for the beginning of March 2015, Sarah Eide and the Borderland Band are ready to have the Chicago music scene take notice of their newest inhabitant.
