"Run Away" is the first track on Sarah Jarosz's second full-length record, "Follow Me Down"(May 17, 2011 release date). The song starts with the lyric:
"Follow me down throught the cotton fields
Moon shadow shine bright the way you will..."
The listener is ready to follow Sarah anywhere after listening to this beautiful track and it sets the overall tone for the rest of her superb 11 track album.
This song sounds like it would be perfect for a film about young lovers wanting to escape the confines of the narrow world youth often times find themselves in. The song's chorus pleads...
"Hold me tight and don't let go
Sweet and soft no one will know
We can run away."
An added bonus to this recording is the great singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin sings harmony with Sarah on the beautifully layered harmonies on this song. If you like this song, you will like the entire album! Hey, you may even love it!!! I know I do!!!

I haven't heard Sarah Jarosz before, but since there was a free download offered , the "Run Away" track, I took a chance. Wow! This is a rare and beautiful delight. Even if the price is no longer free, I enthusiastically recommend you buy it, and look into buying her other works too.

Good vocals, and talented musician(s).

The categories on Amazon music pages tend to be hit or miss, in terms of accuracy. Meanwhile, many great albums do not fit neatly into a single, confining category. I love music (and books) that defy easy categorization.

The category on the Amazon page says this is "Alternative Rock/Singer-Songwriters". That is somewhat true; seems a mix of that plus folk and bluegrass.

The instrumentals and her voice on Annabelle Lee are even more beautiful; and that track has a stronger bluegrass influence. The lyrics on that track are loosely based on Edgar Allen Poe.

I downloaded this after hearing the sample, and the song does not disappoint. I'd never heard of Sarah before, but on this song, she channels Allison Krauss, early Michelle Shocked and I hear a slight nod to prime Fleetwood Mac, all executed just beautifully. A great song that I'm happy to have in my collection.

Like a folksier Miranda Lambert, Sarah Jarosz connects to the pit of me with `Run Away'; a soft yet piercing folk ballad. With country, blue-grass roots that sink deep into her musical persona, Jarosz uses her stunning voice to create a beautiful and haunting track here. The lyrical content isn't very original (there and plenty of songs, especially in the Country genre, that cover this brand of material) but she sells it with every word. For those of you iffy about the association with Blue Grass, know that this is a very modern and accessible take on the genre, one that many can and will soak up with delight. She underscores the finger plucking guitar strings with a crystal clear voice that pierces through and builds an emotional response; and the choice to slow down the commonly high-energy variants of the song make for a nice change of pace. AND THOSE HARMONIES ARE PHENOMENAL! Take my word for it; you'll love it!

I can't wait to hear more from her.

Sarah Jarosz can proudly count herself among the best female guitarists and songwriters ever. She is supremely talented and impresses this guitarist who has been playing for over 30 years. She is well worth a listen and is a fine addition to the world of music. Enchanting!

Found this artist via a feww Starbucks down load. Thanks Starbucks! What a find. I love this artist. She has a great sound. A very unquie and layered sound. It is a nice mix of tradtional and modern sounds. Wish I could find more like her.

I could listen over and over. It has a interesting guitar(?) track and that folksy twang without being overwhelming. She has a good voice and she uses it well to cover a broad range of sounds. Nice.

Sarah is one of the most talented performers out there. I believe she is only 19 or 20. I look forward to much more to come. "Runaway" is simply beautiful. Sarah has quite a story--check it out.
