Sarah Morrau's warm style and vocal clarity illuminate the themes of relationships, loss and longing in the songs she has chosen. "I know how music has touched me and been a healing force--my hope is that people who listen to this album might experience this as well."
A wide range of life experiences are reflected in Sarah Morrau's performance. From a childhood spent living in far-flung locales including New Zealand and Texas to a career that has included jazz radio broadcasting and counseling as well as singing, Sarah draws on a deep and empathetic understanding of human emotion to infuse her songs.
"...To Hold You," released in 1999, presents ballads and jazz standards, inserts Morrau's soulful interpretations, and for the first time, mixes in some of the Fargo songstress's original compositions. An outstanding roster of regional musicians contributed to the tracks on jazz guitar, acoustic guitar, piano, saxophone, upright bass, cello, percussion, adding the rich texture of supporting melody.
This stunning collection of ballads and jazz standards by Fargo songstress Sarah Morrau includes two original songs ("Hold You" and "Voices" featuring Sarah accompanying herself on keyboards), jazz standards ("Summertime," "Autumn Leaves," "They Can't Take That Away From Me"), and pop ballads (Leonard Cohen's "Song of Bernadette" and "Suzanne," Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now").
