Ac Sapphire, Desert Car Review
Ac Sapphire hails originally from Eastern Pennsylvania, she grew up in a large family of 8 children. It was the breeding ground of fertile creativity. By 17 years old, Sapphire teamed up with two of her siblings and formed Sisters3, which afforded her regional success. Then her younger sister quit the group. For Sapphire, it was devastating. She needed a change and knew just where to find it. For years, she had been selling pizza at music festivals around the country. “I worked for a company of outsiders, artists, and travelers,” she explains. “Every year after working at Coachella I would spend two weeks in Joshua Tree. I was entranced by the desert. I wanted to live there.” Her time living in the west is reflected in her latest single “Desert Car,” which features Victoria Williams and is the first single and title track off her impending album due out in May of 2020.Positives: There is a relaxed spaciousness to “Desert Car,” her hauntingly beautiful voice resonates with ethereal sublimates. Bottom Line: “Desert Car” has elements of Americana and rock all rolled into a catchy collection of sounds. Produced and engineered by Tim Sonnefeld, “Desert Car” was written by Tim Sonnefeld and Sapphire. The song form makes good use of vocal backgrounds and varying instruments sounds. Blending the definitive sounds of jangling melodies with her commanding voice, she awakens the listener and revives their spirit with impassioned lyrics that tell the story of deliciously crafted tales. Mixing in folk and pop sensibilities that linger long past the listen, Sapphire has her own unique soundscape that beguiles and awakens. That’s the short of it!
