Sara Bareilles

by Kathryn Reid

I first heard Sara Bareilles's music on Pandora. I was in freshman year of high school and had been listening to mostly classical music and '80s hits in middle school. I was just starting to figure out what kind of songs I most enjoyed listening to. When I heard "Love Song", it really resonated with me. It's the kind of song that made me dance crazily around the kitchen, swinging my hair everywhere when I had to empty the dishwasher and "Love Song" came on the radio. I think what appeals to me the most about Barielles are the "no-nonsense", blunt, quality of her lyrics in songs like "Fairytale" and "Bottle it Up". Her music also lead to me to other artists that I really enjoy, like Lily Allen and Vanessa Carlton.
