Saving Grace: released on itunes 2009.



Sarah Ruddick began her musical career as 'Smily Raymaker' on the online platform of 'Second Life' where she played live from her bedroom to the world. After some very positive feedback from her international listeners the owners of the game invited her to play in 'real' life at a recruitment drive in Brighton which paved the way for live sets.

Sarah is often seen playing her music around the Warwickshire and Leicestershire areas and at various festivals including the Leamington Peace Festival and the Godiva Festival. Sarah has received recognition of her songwriting and music by becoming a finalist in the UK songwriting competition for 2009 & 2010, a finalist in the Open Mic UK 2009 competition and the 'band of the month' in November for BBC Coventry and Warwickshire 2009.

With her unique and astonishingly agile voice, her effortless and original phrasing, Sarah Ruddick is a singer – guitarist with a bright future. Sarah’s folk, pop and country influenced style gives immense listening pleasure as she sings her own compositions as well as some artfully selected traditional songs and classic covers. Songs of love, loss and inner strength, intuitively romantic ballads along with some feisty ‘get back up on your feet’ tunes, make each of Sarah’s sets a genuine joy. Her well-crafted material is delivered with emotional impact and a maturity of expression which belies her years. Sarah’s unflurried fingerpicking and tight rhythm playing provide the perfect setting for a voice which reveals the inner song with unrivalled sensitivity, purity of tone and complete authenticity
