Sarah Kroger releases “The London Sessions,” an album that marks a meeting of the streams moment for the Nashville-based singer-songwriter. The new album is the artist’s first completely live record, recorded just outside of London following Kroger’s first UK tour, marking another milestone in her international appeal. As a Catholic, Kroger is no stranger to the global church, celebrating this as an opportunity to continue leaning into that side of her artistry and serving listeners beyond her native borders.
This project is a collection of intentionally chosen songs that tell of where Kroger has been musically over the past few years, both as a solo artist and as a part of various side projects and collectives. The songs were selected from her album “Light” (2020), as well as from her work with musical communities REVERE (2021), FAITHFUL (2021), and Village Lights (2021). “The London Sessions” emphasizes Kroger’s diverse creativity and highlights her smooth vocals, which shine through each of the 7 tracks.
“We went into this recording as a band saying to each other, ‘How would you want to hear this song live?’ After each person added their own flavor, my music director, Zorin McGuire, took all the flavors and made sure they worked together,” Kroger explains.
The new album is concluded with “What A Wonderful World” – a longtime favorite for Kroger who always includes it in her concert sets, creating an extra layer of the uniqueness and broad appeal of this album.
