Sara Bareilles wows with her new EP, out NOW!

Sara Bareilles’ EP, “Once Upon Another Time”, is a refreshingly raw piece of music artistry out today.

Recorded in Nashville and produced by her longtime friend Ben Folds, the songs have a perfectly gritty feel to them. As she told Rolling Stone, “I wanted it to sound a little bit different than the rest of my records. There’s a rawness, a sonic rawness there that’s a new territory for me."

Bareilles definitely took herself out of her comfort zone, even recording the title track at her house, with Folds telling American Songwriter, “Sara is the real thing — a producer’s dream. She opens her mouth in front of a mic and you’re done.” He adds, “She submitted herself to quite a brave process during the EP we recorded together. It’s quite ‘warts and all’, few takes, no manipulation. Very honest.”

This is exemplified by the tracks “Stay” and “Lie To Me”. While, “Sweet As Whole”, is what Perez Hilton describes as a “a delicate yet aggressive nod to the familiar experience of, well quite frankly, meeting an *sshole! hah!”
