Depth of heart and sweetness of soul are two things that flow freely through the music of Sarah Humphreys. From delicate folk music to personal reveries, vibrant collaborations and rousing alt-country songs, Sarah has the ability to infuse it all with her innate sensitivity and an artisanal touch in the craft of songwriting.
Now into her second decade as a recording artist, Sarah has charted a course that has stayed true to her muse with four critically acclaimed solo albums (Teapot Trees And Love Birds, Hello, New Moon, Strange Beauty) a couple of EPs (Ghost On The Roof, Autumn, Him), an album of folk songs for children (Little Wonders, with Loren Kate) and a record of raw and sultry, openhearted Americana with her husband, Kristen Lee Morris – as Eagle & The Wolf.
Sarah’s third solo album New Moon was produced by recent ARIA Hall Of Fame inductee, Kasey Chambers. On release it received four stars from Rolling Stone Magazine who hailed it as ‘A mature, mediative offering from an Australian folk nymph, as natural and as honest as they come. Soulful & unpolished.’
Sarah’s fourth solo album, Strange Beauty with producer Syd Green (Iota, Dirty Lucy), was released in October 2019. The new album is another tour de force of emotional and honest songwriting built on melody, melancholy and that sweet and untethered voice.
While in isolation in 2020, Sarah recorded a meditation album under the pseudonym, Mama Wolf. Healing, peaceful, music – perfect for rest time, a sleep aide, rest time for children, yoga practice and more. It’s inspired by the seven chakras, and each chakra has a note and a colour it is associated with. Sarah played and recorded all of the instruments herself in her home in the Blue Mountains.
She is now working on Eagle & The Wolf’s second record, due for release in 2021.
“From the first time I heard Sarah Humphreys’ beautiful voice I became her biggest fan. She writes songs from the heart that are real and captivating – just like the person she is.”
