Inspired by riffing experiments at the piano, life, nature, full-tilt boogie & the quieter things The Fruitful Earth is the project of singer-songwriter Sarah Blair. The third album has just been recorded & plans are being put in place for the release. There are new collaborations on this latest record & some powerful new sounds coming forward. It's sweet-hearted, full blooded & raw. Those laid back Southern grooves are very much there & there's definite connections with the previous two albums.
The first two Fruitful Earth albums 'The Fruitful Earth' & 'Rising Sun' appeared in Q, Mojo, The Word, The Observer, Classic Rock Magazine, Clash & other influential online music blogs. Radio play has been important with tracks played by Dermott O'Leary (Radio 2), Frank Skinner (Absolute Radio), Gary Crowley (BBC Introducing London) & a live session on Simon Lederman's Show (BBC London).
