About this album

Sadie Jemmet’s debut album, ‘The Blacksmith’s Girl’
Out on Wildflower Records / Warner Digital - October 24th 2011.

Produced by Steve Lee, mixed and co-produced in LA by David Bianco (Bob Dylan, Teenage Fanclub/Del Amitri/Tom Petty) and mastered in London by Kevin Metcalfe (Queen/David Bowie/Kinks/Oasis), Sadie’s album, The Blacksmith’s Girl is the distillation of her astonishing life story. Mostly written over the last year, 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 own sub-conscious. Yet like the best songs of Joni Mitchell, at the same time 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.
