Sara Beck releases much-anticipated “A Simple Thing”

by Dave Carew

I’ve said many times in this blog that I think Sara Beck is one of our most supremely gifted singer-songwriters. Sara’s 2011 pop-gem Technicolor was easily one of the finest albums released by anyone that year.

That’s why it was so cool to learn yesterday—via an email sent out by Sara to her many friends and fans—that she has just released her new, eagerly awaited record A Simple Thing.

Sara’s email read, in part, “I am so excited to announce that my new album is available as of October 15th at online retailers like Itunes and Rhapsody, as well as The project was a labor of love . . . I love these songs, and I recorded them at my home studio with the love of my life, Park Chisolm. The album is very stripped down, and I hope those of you who have been asking me to make an acoustic album will be pleased.”

Three songs from A Simple Thing now are streaming at

In Sara’s email, she also made this huge announcement: “The release of this album coincides with an amazing time of transition for me; Park and I are expecting a little girl in about three weeks!”

So congratulations are due to Sara and Park, all around. Now, do yourself a huge favor, and go buy this record pronto!
