Acoustic Compilation CD available to buy from Website. http://www.TheZodiacSessions.com
Sarah Gleeson playing "Greedy Guts" at The Zodiac Sessions singer / songwriter night held in Bruxelles bar of Dublin, every Wednesday night.
Sarah Gleeson started playing guitar when she was 15. She wasnt very good, so she gave up for about 6 months, as it made her fingers really sore. Then she felt a but guilty cos her parents had splashed out on a pretty nice Tanglewood (well, nice for a first guitar) so this spurred her on to continue, however hamfistedly.The first song she learned to play was American Pie by Don Mclean. When Sarah finally crash landed in UCC in 2003 after a drunken year of tomfoolery and nothing, she started writing songs, little ditties really. Just about boys and kissing and things like that. Then someone some night said "Hey theyre quite good, do you want to do a gig?" and Sarah said "Hmmm...yeah, i think i do!" So she did her first real gig in the Cruiscin Lan in Cork and thought, hey this is fun, maybe i shoud write some more songs... In 2005 Sarah entered a singer/songwriter competition in Cork which was being held in the pub net door to her flat. and after weeks of heats she found herself in the grand final. Then she found herself winning it and singing The Auld Triangle to a room full of Corkonians. Smart move eh? In an ironic twist of fate, the prize was a semi acoustic Tanglewood. If this was a Behind The Music doumentary, the voiceover artist (preferably Ron Howard) would say somthing like "Sarah's music career to this point had come full circle". So, skip to age 24. Its now years later and Sarah is still writing little ditties...but as she has grown up so has her lyric style and subject matter. She is doing support slots here and there, but is mostly working away on songs so that she might eventually get her act together and record an EP. She still cant play standing up though, and thinks that maybe she and Liza Minnelli DO have something in common; vertigo.
