"An exciting new talent has emerged" - Amplify Music Mag
If there’s one new buddy you need in life, and one long-awaited record to add to your vinyl collection, then look no further!
Home-grown talented Sarah Buddy from Kitchener, Ontario, has recently released her translucent orange vinyl debut album – Sparks Fly on World Record Store Day on October 24.
Since that satisfying and significant day, Sarah’s feel-good fabulous sounds have been making an immediate impact and grabbing media attention.
Last month, Craig Norris spun Sarah’s track ‘Dark Shadows’ on his Drive-Time Morning Show on CBC KW and spun it again on his show ‘In the Key of C’ which goes out across Ontario. Sarah has also been interviewed on River Radio. Ripples of publicity for ‘Sparks Fly’ followed including a feature published in Amplify Music Magazine titled “ An exciting new talent is emerging – Sarah Buddy”.
Sparks Fly came together against the odds of a pandemic, border closures, lockdowns, and the music industry being plunged into dark times.
Thanks to a unique partnership with Canada and the UK, and Sarah’s determination and dreams, the release became possible.
“To see it all come to fruition is incredible, to be honest,” said Sarah.
Sarah thanks Encore Record, Kitchener for stocking her orange album for Record Store Day, and is grateful to Microforum Pressing Plant who gave Sarah the unique experience of witnessing the orange vinyl ‘hot off the press’ being made into her album!
“I think vinyl is important because it has such a different sound to digital music,” Sarah enthused. ‘There are people out there that appreciate we’re giving them more options. People want to remix it and they still use turntables or they want to DJ it into their sets. They can do it with vinyl. I grew up in the ‘90s so I’m still all about having something physical in my hands. It’s just cool to have a vinyl record.”
‘Sparks Fly’ has been co-produced by Nick Coler, who has previously worked with Alice Cooper and Kylie Minogue.
Several tracks feature Malcolm ‘Molly’ Duncan on sax (Average White Band - ‘Pick Up The Pieces’). Sarah comes from Waterloo in Ontario, and her vocals were recorded in Studio A in Kitchener, Ontario.
