Sara Vian Short Info

Sara Vian (born Sara Vian Al-Adhub on 10th September 1972) is a half English/half Iraqi singer, songwriter & radio-presenter, born and raised in Cardiff, South Wales until moving to Somerset when she was 13.

Her mother, Pam, testifies that Vian's first words were "Che Guevara" (or was it "coat-hanger"?), and growing up, Pam and Vian's older sister, Leila exposed her to the counter-culture education of bands such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, America & Jethro Tull etc. ​

Vian is primarily a vocalist with a nature for improvisation and harmony.

After experimenting with a number of genres and projects, Vian discovered the "Independent State of Frome" in Somerset, England in 2010, where she was able to find the support she needed to start building her music career.

Thus, on Record Store Day 2015, Vian launched her debut EP, produced by Will Angeloro on Soaring Magpie Records; a raw folk-blues essentially self-penned “happy accident” which received rave reviews and earned Vian the title of “fastest-selling local indie artist” at her local independent record store.

Then, on Record Store Day 2016, the winning trio launched her debut album, "Wild, Free and Beautiful", a fully self-penned 9-track album which, in addition to the raw and simple folk-blues on the EP, Angeloro introduced some rather surprising and infectious trip-hop, world, dub, country & classical influences, appealing to fans of early Pink Floyd, Jeff Buckley, Neil Young, Thomas Newman, Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague) and Portishead.
