Sara Radle will fill Saturdays with sweet pop music at Casey’s Irish Pub this September. The former Rentals vocalist will begin her residency at Casey’s on September 4th with a rare acoustic set (she’ll be joined by some special guests), and the premiere of “Fooling Nobody” and “Lucy”, two music videos from her upcoming album, Four. The following Saturday, Radle will celebrate the release of her first solo album in six years, Four.
Sara Radle has been involved with so many projects that it was hard to get back to the studio to work on her own music. But the former Rentals vocalist has finally done just that, the result being Four, a full-length album due out September 14th. Filled with beautiful, darling pop songs, complete with 60s-girl-group-inspired background vocals, string arrangements and clever lyrics, Radle’s musical career comes full circle. “…It’s been a long time coming,” says Radle. “It’s special to me…it feels like I’m back on track in my path as a musician. It’s like coming back home.”
On Four, Radle’s precious and pure pop voice is showcased in ten gorgeous songs that tug at the heart (and sometimes punch) with strings and lush layers of vocal harmonies. Every song is like a peek into her personal diary; however Radle does not fit into the simple category of girl and her guitar. She is a well-versed musician and arranger who knows how to work with Americana or folk and meld them into one another with pop magic and wonderment. Radle admits she was a bit cautious about re-launching her solo career in Los Angeles (after spending years establishing herself in Texas). But with Four, it’s not so much a re-launching, as it is just the beginning.
