Sara is a Retro-Pop singer/songwriter living in Philadelphia, PA. Using the best elements of pop music from yesterday and today, she merges them into something both refreshing and nostalgic, and calls the result "Retro Pop". She studied Voice, Piano, Clarinet, Guitar and Violin at Indiana State University and later graduated from West Chester University with a degree in Music Education. The album 'Red', released October 2011, is a collection of 12 carefully selected original songs. The album was recorded and produced in Warminster, PA at ECR Studio by Grammy-nominated producer James Cravero. It's title comes from the first track on the album, a song that pulls in the listener with both the catchy melody and by showing off Sara's vocal abilities. Each song has it's own distinctly unique flavor, yet they all represent her writing style and passion for singing. Even though "love and heartbreak" are a frequently visited topic for the lyrical content, you may be surprised to find that most of the songs are upbeat and memorable. 'I decided to title the album after 'Red' because it is probably my favorite song from the collection. It's really hard to choose just one, but this one stands out to me for a few reasons. Firstly, it really cuts deep at the core with the story that I share in the lyrical content. I write original songs, and with that comes the feeling at times of allowing everyone in the world to read your open diary. I've learned to enjoy this experience of sharing, and it is all the more worthwhile when a song is very close to my heart, like 'Red' is. Secondly, the song wasn't in the first selection of songs that I had listed out for this album. I wrote it about halfway through the recording process while just 'messing around' at the piano at home. A few days later, I came into the studio with this new song (Red), and told Jim (James Cravero) that I would like to record it that same day. We recorded the piano track first in one take, and each additional layer was added over the next few days. Of all the songs on the album, this one took the least studio time to record. It also happens to be my favorite track, and the title for the overall work of this album.' - Sara Tiemogo.
