Introduced by a mutual friend in 2010, Sarah ‘Songbird’ Larkin and Sarah Ryan have been nearly inseparable, musically, since. Their recorded works are diverse and represent the broad musical influences and potential that this duo embodies. The 2017 release Afternoon With the Dirty Birds has the support of full instrumentation and showcases their songs with a big, 'full band' sound. Their 2018 release Headed For The Hills sinks back to their roots as acoustic musicians. This album was recorded in one day, on one microphone, and captures the authentic, raw power of their sound.
With gratitude for the gift of music given them, The Real Sarahs offer back their gifts with open hearts and truth of purpose. These women seek to inspire, uplift and entertain their audiences with songs that speak to the heart of the human experience. With the onset of regional and international touring in 2018, you can expect their voices to ripple out, touching more hearts and minds and carrying their message and influence to an ever broadening field of music lovers. With warmth and humor The Real Sarahs offer their REAL selves to the world as the women of song that they were born to be.
