Released 19 February, ‘Look Into The Stars’ is the new album from London artist, Sarah E Jackson. An ambient and ethereal record, it’s been created by layering MIDI tracks and complementing them with piano and keyboards, powerful 808 lines, and percussions.
The ten track album, which opens with the title track, makes good use of spacey effects, with Sarah E Jackson’s vocals floating ethereally above the instrumentals. Reverb and other alternative effects are put to good use, particularly in the afore-mentioned title track and also track 7, ‘When The Sun Goes Down’.
Sarah E Jackson created the album in her bedroom, using her Mac computer and keyboards. Speaking of the writing process, she says,
“Music is my therapy, I sit there and play the notes on my keyboard, then put the lyrics to the songs.”
Sarah’s inspiration comes from many sources, particularly personal ones such as her own experiences in life, as well as friends, and the planet itself.
Sarah E Jackson has been writing music since 1991, and her love for the art began when she was 7, listening to a transistor radio. She first became interested in music production from listening to BBC Radio 6 DJ, Dave Pearce, who used to present the programme “Dance Music”, back in 2008.
