With a soulful blend of indie rock and piano pop, Sarah Speaks Easy is a band that brings a brutally honest and refreshingly raw expression of life, love, and rock-n-roll from a quirky Midwestern city. Inspired by such artists as Fiona Apple, Ben Folds, and Alicia Keys, many of their songs are passionate creations of the lead vocalist and piano player, Sarah Bollinger, who grew up in the midst of the St. Louis blues scene. Her booming, soulful voice is reminiscent of Eva Cassidy, Adele, and Lauryn Hill, and Sarah leads the band with a commanding presence. In addition to Sarah, the other three members of the band were raised in the South and bring with them a Southern Americana influence. Jonathan Spencer (basses), Justin Gorinsky (guitars), and Paul Lanier (drums) came together to form the band in collaboration with Sarah in August of 2009 playing gospel tunes and re-vamped hymns for a progressive church located in St. Louis city. Their repertoire soon expanded to include Sarah’s heart-rending and thought-provoking originals. The band began playing in local bars and clubs around the St. Louis area and quickly grew a large following of faithful fans. SSE will be playing the newly revived Lunar Menagerie on April 22.
