Released on February 3rd 2017, Sydney based Sarah Belkner’s empathetic world of a debut album ‘But You Are, But It Has’ is already finding it’s way into the ears and hearts of delighted fans and critics.
Ahead of release it garnered Double J album of the week and the video for accompanying single ‘Cellophane’ filmed in London by Brian Fairbarn & Karl Eccleston was premiered by Rolling Stone.
It’s a dreamscape indie pop record that ferries catchy, emotional vocal hooks to a rich world of complex, subtle and layered arrangements.
Drawing attention for her enigmatic live performances Belkner recently supported OLYMPIA on her national Australian album tour and toured the UK & Europe opening for Sarah Blasko. The album is a true body of work, that has a new level of majestic production and ingenuity. A refreshing alternative somewhere between pop, baroque and electronic in a body of classic songwriting.
BYABIH was Produced by Sarah Belkner and her husband, highly renowned engineer Richard Belkner, at their recording studio Free Energy Device in Camperdown, Sydney, Australia.
Since releasing the ‘Humans’ EP in 2015, and alongside finishing of her album, Belkner has also become a revered musician and arranger touring and performing with artists including Sarah Blasko, OLYMPIA, Chet Faker, NGAIIRE, Lanie Lane and Alex Lloyd. She has also been in the producers seat for other artists including Jack Colwell, Rosie Catalano and Julia Johnson.
