Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2003 – present)

Emily Armstrong - Singer/Guitarist
Siouxsie Medley - Guitarist
Sean Friday - Drummer
Chris Null - Bass Player

Music history is rich with rock bands fronted by dynamic duos. Looking to carry on this vital yin and yang tradition (minus the drama such chemistry often fuels) are singer Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley, who front Los Angeles’ Dead Sara — an electrifying rock outfit whose supercharged music is propelled by Medley’s monster riffs and Armstrong’s wailing, passionate vocals.

The two musicians are a study in contrast onstage: Medley remains rooted in place — a solid, steady anchor for Armstrong’s almost unhinged performances. A skilled vocal stylist who can handle blues, soul, and folk-rock with equal aplomb, Armstrong will unleash a guttural howl one minute and trill as pretty as a songbird the next. Dead Sara is exactly what you want from a young, hungry rock band: unpredictable and enigmatic, and looking to make an explosive sonic and emotional impact.

Dead Sara, which also includes bassist Chris Null and drummer Sean Friday, funnel the ferocious spectacle of their live show into their self-titled debut album, which they are releasing this spring. Produced by Noah Shain, the album is a versatile showcase for the band’s talent, veering effortlessly from melodic, soaring tunes (“We Are What You Say,” “Whispers & Ashes”) to bruised power ballads (“Sorry for it All”, Dear Love,” “Face to Face”) to fierce, heavy stompers (“Timed Blues,” “Test My Patience,” “Weatherman”).
