Sarah King “Blame It On The Booze” – it is no excuse

Sarah King’s recent A/B sider release featured as the A-side ‘Blame it on the Booze‘ a song that the New England Music Awards Songwriter of the Year for 2021 explains is drawn from life.  As she tell it ‘Blame It On the Booze‘ was written for one of her closest friends who at the time, was struggling with an abusive relationship. It was immensely difficult for King to stand by and watch things unfold, while feeling afraid for her friend’s safety. It seemed as though anytime her friend’s boyfriend drank too much, they feared for the worst. The song enabled King to process her feelings on the situation and at the same time reach out to those who need to know that there is always a way out. 

The song is a powerful blend of country storytelling and just a dash or two of Zeppelin inspired rock.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
