Liner notes

Whilst sitting in a bar one night with a friend and writing a set list for a gig I was about to do, I wondered aloud what songs to play. "Why don't you play all your happy songs?" he hilariously quipped. "Right!" I thought, "I'll show him" and vowed to write a happy song. Up On The Heath was the result.

About the artist

I sing and play guitar and write songs.I have done this since i was 16. I sometimes make money from it which is always surprising and nice.

I am at last making a debut album due for release soon - October 2011.

I also write music for theatre, mainly with Irina Brook in Paris and the US.

I have recently gone off boys in a romantic way and am instead concentrating on learning difficult augmented minor seventh chords to intimidate them.

I like writing, singing, playing, recording, performing, going to the swings, drinking, naughty outside smoking, putting off paying parking fines, falling in love, writing music for theatre, reading bedtime stories, resolving tantrums, watching movies, driving down to sussex, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Prince, Thomas Dybdahl, Toots And The Maytals, Ray Lamontagne, June Tabor, Joan Armatrading, Pixies, Bert Jansch, Johnny Cash, Truly Madly Deeply, Withnail And I, Wings Of Desire, Bagdad Café, The Big Lebowski, It's A Wonderful Life, and The Railway Chilldren."

Sadie’s magical, eloquently confessional songs are all about coming to terms with her extraordinary and often traumatic past. Many of them delve deep into her own sub-conscious and like the best songs of Joni Mitchell, they’re far more than pages torn from a private diary.

Sadie’s debut album THE BLACKSMITH'S GIRL was produced by Steve Lee, mixed and co-produced by David Bianco (Bob Dylan/Del Amitri/Tom Petty) and mastered in London by Kevin Metcalfe (Queen/David Bowie/Kinks/Oasis).

Out in October 2011 on Wildflower Records.

UP ON THE HEATH

Won't you stand still with me
We'll get out of this city
We'll live our lives they're meant to be
Breathe in the clean air

Oh, but you know my old car
It just wont get us very far
Just out of Hackney up to Gospel Oak is all im hoping for

So lets go up onto the Heath
Watch the city crawl beneath our feet
Try to beat these blues away

Oh, well won't you come away
Cos the world looks good today
Lie on our backs and watch the world rush by
We're high in a blue sky

And I'll tell you what i know
Of the city down below
Of all the people here in london town
Well im so glad i found you

Oh, let's go up onto the Heath
Watch the city crawl beneath our feet
And try to beat these blues away
And pretend the world is perfect for today

When the lights begin to fade
We will slowly make our way
Through the ancient trees of Hampstead Heath
While the moon does creep
And the city sleeps

We'll be up upon the Heath
Watching the city crawl beneath our feet
And we will beat these blues away, yeah
And we'll know the world is perfect
And everything was worth it
Yes, we'll know the world is perfect for today.
