SARAH CLANTON’S SPEAKEASY POP’ICANA SHOW IS A CELLO-BRATION OF THE UNEXPECTED. This Nashville based singer-songwriter blends flashes of the classically-trained pop sensibility of Regina Spektor and the sultry jazzitude of Amy Winehouse together in what Clanton calls a “cello-bration” in a one-of-kind musical approach. Sarah Clanton is bringing people together and building a feel-good machine. The Nashville singer-songwriter, who has brought the classical and pop worlds together with her use of a cello, rather than a guitar, to front one of Music City’s most unique bands, has been on a feel-good mission since long before she plucked her way into town. But it’s never been more apparent than on her new album, Here We Are.


Here We Are may be a solo album, but Clanton says it could not have been made without others — from co-producer Eric Loomis, to a group of top Nashville session musicians and many more. But mostly, she says, the album was made for others. She jokes that the uplifting, “big and awesome” pop album is a “feel-good machine,” built to bring people together in these difficult and divisive times. “We’re not going to make any progress being divided,” she says. “If I can get some of that mindfulness out there to negate some of the hate, that would be so great.”
