Following a break-out 2018 that saw 26-year old Gothenburg artist Sarah Klang win a Swedish Grammy and chart at #1 with her debut album ‘Love In The Milky Way’, the self-confessed “saddest girl in Sweden” released her second album, ‘Creamy Blue’ October 25th 2019.
Whilst working as a waitress in her father’s bar, desperate for a change, Sarah made the decision to turn her hand to writing her own songs. Using a love of good old-fashioned ballads as her starting point, the result was something that intertwines classic 60s/70s pop, Americana and country to mesmerizing effect. In next to no time she’d be playing to ever-growing crowds at underground venues as she worked on her debut album in the background – innocently unaware of what was to follow. The chart-topping and Grammy-winning debut ‘Love In The Milky Way’ arrived last year and catapulted Sarah into the spotlight. Its release was followed by two sold-out Scandinavian tours (one being a headliner, the second supporting First Aid Kit) plus further dates around mainland Europe that solidified her fast-growing reputation around the continent.
