Biography

I am sitting down to write my bio for the third time and I’m trying to think of what to say that you can’t find on Wikipedia. There are lots of little facts and tidbits about my life and career that I’m sure can be summed up in a one-sheet, but that’s not the kind of thing I feel like I want to be writing.

Product Description

Amazon.com

For many listeners, Little Voice will be their first exposure to this soulful singer/songwriter, but it's actually Sara Bareilles' second record. Her first, the self-released Careful Confessions, led to a deal with Epic. Since then, Bareilles has opened for Marc Broussard and Maroon 5. She's also become a bonafide soundtrack queen with tracks featured in female-centric films Girl Play, Loving Annabelle, and Monster-in-Law. As with her out-of-print debut, the UCLA grad wrote every song on her first major label recording (Little Voice features re-worked versions of several demo numbers). Like the portrait on the back of the CD--Bareilles in strappy black dress and lace-free high-tops--the piano-playing chanteuse combines the sweet with the scruffy. While her jazzy pop melodies are radio-ready, her relationship-oriented lyrics can be unexpectedly salty ("Bottle Up" and "Come Round Soon" wouldn't pass FCC muster). A little profanity here and there, however, doesn't indicate tough-girl attitude--Amy Winehouse can rest easy--so much as a desire to express herself freely. As Bareilles explains in "Love Song," "I'm trying to let you hear me as I am." (Not surprisingly, her degree is in communications.) Fans of Sarah McLachlan and Alicia Keyes will find much to like here. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars The future of piano rock July 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Sara Bareilles in a free song of the week on I-Tunes, the song was "Love Song". Well, it blew me away. It was instantly one of the best songs I heard this year and I was impatient for the rest of the album to come out. Well, I was well pleased to hear the rest of this album. She has a great talent, the songs fit together well and her voice is incredible. She is reminiscent of Fiona Apple in her voice style but builds on that with the instrumental accompaniment to the songs, which complement her well. If you want real new music, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Flawless Album From A Big Voice July 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Sara Bareilles' CD, 'Little Voice,' is one of the best CDs my ears have had the pleasure of listening to. Every song is flawless, a task which I thought impossible because I had become so attached to all of her old renditions of these songs. For those hesitant in how the new sound is, don't be. She takes these songs and changes them, they grow and morph into (while not necessarily better) amazIng works of art. 'Love Song' is one of the best 'jump-around-summer-songs' I've heard of late, and 'Gravity' will put tears in your eyes with its beauty and simplicity. 'Vegas' is a song I can play over and over, while 'Between the Lines' (the only song I had not heard before buying the album) is a somber and tragic song. And while 'Fairytale' may never sound as good as it does with only Sara and her piano, this new version fits very nicely with this perfect album. Sara's words are strong, her voice phenomenal, and her piano skills abundant, and this album is the perfect testament to the sheer beauty of everything that is Sara Bareilles. Is it too soon to be anticipating her next album?

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS CD! July 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because I heard the sound byte on the Rhapsody commercial and it was really catchy. I figured it would be one of those CDs with one or two good songs that never gets listened to. I love EVERY single song on this CD. Sara has such a beautiful voice and the tunes are catchy and great to just get in your car and drive.

Can't wait to hear more from her!

With its incessant piano hook and heart-felt lyrics, "Love Song" caught my attention immediately as one of the most impressive debut singles I've heard on pop radio. So is it true with the rest of "Little Voice" which demonstrates that Sara Bareilles has an incredibly bright future ahead as a compelling chanteuse of original piano-based pop rock music (I'd like to think of her as someone with the melodic richness of a Sarah McLaughlin coupled with the sarcastic, hip lyrics and excellent musical chord writing of a Randy Newman.). Her stylistic influences range all over the map, from the fusion jazz of "Vegas" to the soft rock pop of "Love Song". Lyrically and musically, her most impressive songs include the short, but quite delightful, "Fairytale" and the memorable ballad "Gravity". This special edition of "Little Voice" includes stripped-down acoustic versions of virtually all of the songs on a separate disk, along with an interview about the writing of "Love Song". "Little Voice" is a marvelous demonstration of "big talent" from a compelling young singer-songwriter from whom we will hear much of in the years ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars I heard this in a B&N and loved it. Who is this woman! November 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was wandering around a Barnes & Noble brick and mortar store and caught a listen to a sweet voice and piano accompaniment playing in the store. I immediately went to ask who is was and they showed me Sara's album. I bought it on the spot.

It's been lovely to listen to. She reminds me of a female Jason Mraz with her catchy rhythms, timing and lyrics. She really excels on the pieces like "Gravity" where you can really feel her pain. I love that. A little Sarah McLachlan ... a little Fiona Apple. I hope she continues and makes a good name for herself.

My kind of artist. I've worn the CD out (well, almost). I love it. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous talent, every song is marvelous!! January 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I'm a 43-year old guy who's been trying to think outside the box musically lately. I've been burned by artists whose "hit" song is the only decent cut on their disk, but this is totally NOT the case with "Little Voice". I heard just a small cut of her "Love Song" on a Rhapsody commerical on TV, and just loved the piano and the voice. It took several times to finally catch and spell her name right, and man was it worth it!! Every song showcases her strong, sultry voice and the piano is fantastic. From "Love Song" to "Morningside" and "City", every cut is just a joy to listen to. If a groove could be cut in a CD, mine would have one, on the whole thing. I just love this CD and haven't felt this way about a new, modern artist since I fell in love with The Barenaked Ladies. It's great to know there is some new, fresh talent out there, it gives me hope for the music industry that wonderful artists like Sara Bareilles are plying their craft and putting out super quality music that appeals to people of all ages and musical tastes. I hope she wins a Grammy! Excellent, don't be afraid to buy the CD, every song is great!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad! December 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard Love Song on Sirius I thought Eh. Not bad. As it got more play it grew on me, so I decided to take a chance on buying the album.

Her voice does have moments when it sounds like Fiona Apple, but I think her music lacks depth. She has a few songs that I enjoyed but I found myself getting impatient for the end of the song and hoping the next would keep my interest. I think she sounds a little bit generic, and after many plays I still find myself gravitating to two or three songs. Love Song is misleading because none of her other songs really sound like it, but if they did then I might've enjoyed it more.

If you read her bio on her Myspace it sounds like she might not have had as much creative freedom during the production process, so maybe her next album can have more of a distinctive sound. I don't know, but because she has a nice voice I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.
