Thursday 16 June: Sara Lov and her band
Born in Hawaii and raised in both Southern California and Israel, singer/songwriter Sara Lov started playing music alongside pianist Dustin O’Halloran when they formed the dream pop duo Devics in 1993. The group later moved to Italy and signed with Bella Union, a UK-based record label run by Cocteau Twins’ Simon Raymonde. Devics released five full-length albums, several EPs, and toured extensively. In 2008, Lov began a solo career and teamed with producer and collaborator Zac Rae (Death Cab for Cutie, Fiona Apple, My Brightest Diamond). Together they recorded two full-length albums, ‘Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming,’ in 2009 and ‘I Already Love You,’ (an album of cover songs) in 2011. Lov spent 2009 and 2010 touring in Europe and the US. In 2015, Sara Lov and Zac Rae finished recording ‘Some Kind of Champion,’ an album of originals by Sara Lov and collaborators Dustin O’Halloran, Hauschka, Scott Leahy, Zac Rae, and Jonathan Price.
