Ahead of the release of her debut Thrill Jockey album Deeper Woods on May 11th, singer/guitarist Sarah Louise has shared the entrancing single “When Winter Turns,” which features performances by Jason Meagher (Black Dirt Studios) and Thom Nguyen.
On the song, Louise says: “This song celebrates the transition from winter to spring in the Appalachians. I wanted an electric guitar solo so I started playing my Mexican strat again that I got when I was 18, spending hours jamming to all kinds of records, especially jazz. I love playing with certain types of jazz because unexpected notes work in so many interesting ways. I also used feedback for the first time, which I did with a hollow body guitar.”
Listen below to Sarah Louise’s new single “When Winter Turns”.
Louise will be making an appearance at the upcoming Thousand Incarnations of the Rose festival in Takoma, MD, which features some of the most acclaimed solo guitarists active today, including labelmates Marisa Anderson and Glenn Jones. She plans to tour throughout the spring and summer.
