Sadie’s debut album, ‘The Blacksmith’s Girl’, is out on Wildflower Records/Warner Digital from 24th October 2011.

The Blacksmith’s Girl is the distillation of Sadie’s astonishing life story. Mostly written over the last year, the magical, eloquently confessional songs are all about coming to terms with Sadie’s extraordinary and often traumatic past. Many of them delve deep into her own sub-conscious. Yet like the best songs of Joni Mitchell, they’re far more than pages torn from a private diary.

The album is set to appear in autumn on Wildflower, the label run by American folk legend Judy Collins. ”I opened for Judy at a show at London’s Jazz café last year,” Sadie recalls. ”She appeared when I was sound checking, which was a bit intimidating because I’ve always regarded her as an inspiration. But she seemed to like what she heard and afterwards invited me to her dressing room, wanting to know all about me and the songs.”

At the time Sadie assumed that Wildflower was purely a vehicle for Collins’ own releases. When she discovered that the label was signing other acts, she got back in touch. Collins had not forgotten the singer and the songs that had so impressed her that night at the Jazz Café, and a deal followed.

By this time, The Blacksmith’s Girl was already intact as an album. But in the meantime, of course, Sadie had been writing new songs, among them the wonderful ”Up On The Heath”, which has now been added to the album. Produced by Ed Harcourt, the track will be the first single.
