About the New Record:

Award winning songwriters, friends, and fellow mamas Sarah Sample and Edie Carey have gathered a mix of original, well-known and beloved, as well as a few more unexpected, tunes on this intimate, harmony-laden collection of lullabies and songs of comfort. After Sample had her second child she realized that most of her music-making at home involved singing to her children, so it felt only natural that her next record would likely be a lullaby album.


Around the same time, Carey was in the midst of two-year struggle with infertility after a near-fatal experience while on tour in 2010. The singers soon became very close as Sample was a steady source of support during that journey. Carey eventually had a son in 2012 (thanks to a $16,000 IVF cycle she won at a raffle!), and soon thereafter they started talking about collaborating on Sarah's lullaby idea together. This partnership led to the desire to honor the quiet moments between parent and child, but to also acknowledge the struggle of infertility and the sometimes circuitous and painful road many people travel to become parents. These are also songs of comfort and solace for anyone, regardless of what phase of life through which one might be passing.


Edie and Sarah are proud to support RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association with a charitable contribution. More information at www.resolve.org


Sarah Sample Bio:


"'Til The Morning: Lullabies & Songs of Comfort" is Sarah Sample's latest release. And after three albums, an EP, and tons of touring into her career, Sarah Sample is quickly shedding any traces of up-and-comer with it's arrival. With a potent mix of hard work, conviction, an uncanny and tireless ability to connect with audiences, relentless enthusiasm, a stunning voice and- most importantly- an enviable catalog of really, really great songs, it's easy to see why.


With lyrics that "cut to the bone" (SLC Weekly) and "just a great, great voice" (Peter Mayer), Sarah's songs are getting noticed. They won her a slot on 2010's Cayamo Cruise and the mainstage at Folks Fest 2008. Telluride, Kerrville, Mountain New Song, Sisters: you name it, she's been a finalist. Marketa Irglova of The Swell Season says of Sarah's live performance, "I was inspired, so touched by her music and by her energy on stage with the band as well as with the audience. A lovely memory I will cherish." Sample has also shared stages with Darrell Scott, Melissa Ferrick, Willy Porter, Peter Himmelman, Mark Stuart/Stacey Earle, Edie Carey, and more, winning new and devoted listeners each time.
