Biography

Sarah Fimm is an American singer-songwriter who lives outside of Woodstock, NY on a mountain looking over a lake. Born to Jewish parents in Tulsa, Oklahoma, her grandmother is a survivor of the holocaust. Her grandmother’s wedding gown, made out of sewn-together parachutes, hangs on display in the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington. In 2008, Fimm journeyed to Ukraine to stand with her grandmother in front of the same dress on display at the Bergen Belsen Museum in Hanover.

Fimm is first a keyboard player. Her earlier works are largely based around her piano playing. She has since expanded to using analog synthesizers, the clavichord, celesta, vibraphone, or anything she can get her hands on.

A prolific artist, she has released several records so far, experimenting with acoustic, rock, and electronic genres.

She toured with Peter Murphy of rock group Bauhaus in 2005, and with electronica band Delerium in 2008. Her music has been used on the MTV reality shows The Real World and Road Rules, Mark Hamill’s Comic Book: The Movie, D.E.B.S. (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture), and the Lifetime channel, among others.

In 2009, she released White Birds, Red Yellow Sun, and her most recent album, The Vanishing Sessions (B-Sides Part I).

In 2010, Sarah launched what would become the ‘Karma Phala Music Project’. This 1 gig thumb drive contains 31 tracks, photography, artwork, and a personal message. On their doorstep, Sarah’s fans receive the drive, import the information and then pay it forward by gifting the drive to someone else.

    I like how your musical style is varied, and how you have elements of different genres. I like the rockyness, and how it sounds a little haunting, yet mellow elements thrown in here and there too.

    Your music is very interesting, I like it! It has its unique sound! But, it also reminds me of Sarah McLachlan meets Sharon den Adele, etc. I especially like your "Invisible Satellites" song.
