Sarah Nebel

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

Simple but powerful. Sarah Nebel escapes the typical singer/songwriter label - she just sounds different. Her voice is like a lover's breath - and it's a pleasure to dig into the delicate layers of her musical arrangements. Excellent songwriting/lyrics. (From reviews of the "Great White" album).

Biography

An oasis in a winter wonderland
Independent Singer-songwriter Sarah Nebel released her second full-length album "Great White" on February 4th, 2008 in Norway. The songs vary from slow roots ballads to alternative pop/rock songs with a definitive twist. "Great White" is a sublime follow up to her first full-length album, "Time to Fly", as it exemplifies Nebel's unique and ever-evolving approach to song-writing. The intense and often provocative lyrics are coupled with thoughtful and exquisite musical arrangements that at times defy gravity.

Great White, received outstanding reviews in all of Norway's largest newspapers - the critiques compared her songwriting with the likes of Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos. Her fan base is continuing to grow in Norway and also internationally through the help of MySpace and iTunes. Her song "Jasmin" from "Great White" was chosen to represent Norway on the international industry meets Midem (Cannes) and and popKOMM (Berlin) in 2008.

Sarah has long experience with live shows - both in the US and in Norway - and has also appeared in several Hollywood films, including Pulp Fiction, I'll Do Anything, Wild Palms and more. She works live with a 4 piece band or solo, accompanying herself on the piano.

After spending a decade in Los Angeles working with music, theatre and film, she is now living in a remote village in her home country Norway - writing music and doing theatre. She has played the major clubs of Oslo and has a growing, local fan base.

Sarah is writing songs on a daily basis - and will continue releasing albums as an independent singer/songwriter. However, she is also looking to write for other artist. She writes music in most genres, but prefers pop, rock, country, americana/roots or alternative. All of Sarah Nebel's work is copyrighted and protected by TONO, Norway.

Sarah is currently part of the Norwegian band project ZOO Lounge, who will release their first album late April, 2010. Their song "Man in the moon" has already won a contest and is featured on the Norwegian "Out of Norway" CD to be presented at Midem and popKomm 2010.

Jasmin

Sweet Jasmin – carry your soul – head up high
You’re the keeper of courage and sugar rush
March to the band and seize the highs
They’re born from lows
And bigger is the sweet sensational glow in the end
The one you get from speaking true words, brave words – yours
The one you get from speaking true words, brave words – yours

Sweet Jasmin – carry your soul – head up high
You’re the keeper of courage and sugar rush
Sweet tricks and angeldust

March to the band and seize the highs
They’re born from lows
And bigger is the sweet sensational glow in the end
The one you get from speaking true words, brave words – yours
The one you get from speaking true words, brave words – yours

Sweet Jasmin – carry your soul – head up high
You’re the keeper of courage and sugar rush
Sweet Jasmin – carry your soul – head up high
You’re the keeper of courage and sugar rush
Sweet tricks and angeldust

This song was made for you it’s meant to saturate
The color that you bravely care to make

Sweet Jasmin – carry your soul – head up high
You’re the keeper of courage and sugar rush
Sweet Jasmin – carry your soul – head up high
You’re the keeper of courage and sugar rush
Sweet tricks and angeldust
Sweet, sweet, sweet. Angeldust.
Sweet, sweet tricks. Angeldust.

Blindfolded Star

Written By: Sarah Nebel

She treats you gently, like a child
Cutting through to disappear
You feel the edges, razor sharp
The scattered wings of a butterfly

She had no name, no name
Blindfolded star, gaze away

You know you loved her, too late now
Too late to hold, she left you cold
Always the stranger, passing by
Now you ache, like a 12-year old

She had no name, no name
Blindfolded star, gaze away

She´s got strange feathers – you got light colors
She´s got strange feathers – you blend well with others

She had no name, no name
Blindfolded star, gaze away
Gaze away
