Lite’s Review Room – Sara Bareilles
She’s not gonna write you a “Love Song.” But she may ask you to “Stay.” That’s the new single from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sara Bareilles[/lastfm] and her upcoming EP, “Once Upon Another Time,” which drops on May 22nd. You may know Sara better for her current role as a judge on the TV show, “The Sing-Off.” Her fellow judge [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ben Folds [/lastfm]helped her produce this EP in Nashville. Part of the reason for “only” doing an EP was that Sara has very little time to write, and wanted to get all kinds of music “out there.”
[photogallerylink id=15744 align=left]Her first album was released in 2004, and she’s had 3 Grammy nominations in her short career. The story behind “Love Song” was that the record company wanted her to write a love song for the album, so she wrote a song about NOT writing a love song. Of course it was her biggest hit.
