The Blacksmith’s Girl

April 1, 2010
Sadie Jemmett
Wildflower Records
Producer: Dave Bianco
Number of discs: 1

Sadie’s debut album ‘The Blacksmith’s Girl’ was mixed and produced in Los Angeles by Grammy Winner David Bianco (Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash)  The Blacksmith’s Girl is the distillation of Sadie’s astonishing life. The magical eloquently confessional songs are all about coming to terms with her  extraordinary and often traumatic past, many of them delve deep into her sub-conscious. Yet like the best songs of Joni Mitchel, at the same time they’re far more than pages torn from a private diary.

The album was released in 2011 on Wildflower Records, the label run by American Folk Legend, Judy Collins.

Written by music critic Nigel Williamson
