Sarah Walk
Sarah Walk grew up amongst the Minneapolis cold, channeling observations of the world around her into song in an attempt to better understand it; an instinctive outlet through the lens of a wide eyed pre-teen. It wasn’t until she was caught with her then-secretive girlfriend at the age of fourteen that Walk’s songwriting began to turn inward, evolving into a necessary muse for her own self discovery, shame, heartbreak, and reclamation.

Her distinct, androgynous voice marries depth and delicacy, complemented by her strong use of rhythm and rich mid range piano playing. Walk’s songs are masterfully tinged with anger, regret, and the obsession of desire. With her recent self-investigative material, Walk explores themes of vulnerability, gender, toxic relationships, and entitlement within structural patriarchy. Sarah deals in songs that are as confessional as they are gut wrenching and swathed in emotion, at once aching and artful, speaking to every magnitude of love and loss.

Metro calls her work “haunting and elusive,” while Red Bull Music says “the Minneapolis singer’s songs are big, soaring things that deal in similar hefty issues but it’s Walk’s fierce yet soulful delivery that lands the decisive blow.” Clash Magazine calls her lyrics “visceral, poignant work,” while BBC6 Music’s Lauren Laverne comments that Sarah’s work “blew my mind when I heard it… beautiful and compelling,” calling her “one to watch.”
