“Siskind has been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Brandi Carlile, but in my humble opinion, she’s incomparable.”
“With Novel, Sarah has created another extraordinary collection of some of the most beautiful and unique songs you’re likely to hear. She continues to be one of my favourite singers. She absolutely knocks me out.”
– Bonnie Raitt
Regarding “Modern Appalachia,” Sarah’s recent album, “This stunner of an album is heart-stoppingly great.”
-Mary Chapin Carpenter
(Two Bird Stone) “Torchbearers of Americana…with rootsy instrumentation and timeless melodies.”
When Liam Thomas Bailey, leader of Two Bird Stone, discovered Sarah’s music on NPR, he reached out to her in hopes that she would participate on his upcoming album. Siskind loved what she heard; the two had instant musical chemistry in the studio and soon realized their influences were parallel, particularly in the trinity of old-time/traditional, Celtic, and progression fusion. Such an uncommon combination solidified their musical friendship. These recordings led to Sarah’s contributing vocals on three songs on Two Bird Stone’s album “Hands and Knees”.
Through the pandemic, they stayed in touch as they both raised families in North Carolina; Sarah in the mountains of Brevard, and Liam in Hickory. After repeated canceled tours for both, they had the opportunity to combine shows on a small 2021 tour in the NC mountains. On stage, Sarah and Two Bird Stone organically fell into magical collaboration, lending harmonies and soaring guitar to each other’s songs. They knew they must do more of these collaborations and so ‘Modern Appalachia: Sarah Siskind with Two Bird Stone was born.
