Mar 15, 2024

8:35pm – 9:00pm CT

The Creek and the Cave Backyard

Since her debut in 2016, Sarah Klang has racked up two Swedish Grammy wins, countless nominations and overwhelming praise in widely acclaimed press such as The Sunday Times, Rolling Stone and I-D. In recent years her audience has gradually grown, as evidenced by sold out shows in London, Amsterdam, Oslo and Stockholm. 2024 includes performances at SXSW in Austin, TX and selected European dates.

Klang released her fourth album "Mercedes" last fall and embarked on a lengthy European tour that ended with a triumphant sold out home town show in Gothenburg, Sweden. The album, named after the artist's daughter, dealt with themes of motherhood and leaving her twenties behind. An album based on deeply personal experiences, but with the strength of something universal and relatable. Klang’s voice and lyrics carry the songs, which overall is her most varied and perfected collection of music to date. The album holds both a truly serious angle and a large dose of humor at the same time.
