Sarah Monteith’s debut solo single is called ‘The End of the Line’ but it could mark a new beginning for the Falkirk singer songwriter.
Recorded in her own home studio, the song is autobiographical and deals with Sarah’s quest to have her work recognised by the music biz and listened to by as many people as possible.
She said: “It’s really about gigging away for six years and not making it big. You realise the important thing is the music and the enjoyment you get from playing it – if something good happens as a result of that then it’s a bonus.”
Sarah will launch the single with a night of acoustic alchemy at Falkirk’s 20 Rocks on Friday. March 9, sharing the spotlight with a number of performers, including Davie Baird, Angus Buchan and Johnny Lumsden.
“They are the people who have helped me along the way – people who turned up when I was hosting open mic nights. I just want to share this night with them to thank them for their support.”
Always melodic, her songs now have a rock edge to them and Sarah, a confirmed dance music fan, often covers clubland classics, distilling the essence of nightclub floor fillers down to just her voice and her trusty guitar.
Currently working on her debut album, Sarah will once again have complete control over the recording process.
She said: “I’ve got a lot friends into recording who have helped me – I’m just learning as I go.”
The launch night kicks off at 7.30 p.m.
‘The End of the Line’ will be released on itunes on March 10 - the day after the launch night performance - and will be available from Amazon.
