Sarabeth Tucek - The Fireman
Sarabeth Tucek is an American singer and songwriter. Her self-titled first album was released in 2007, with a second album Get Well Soon in 2011.
Influenced by Dylan, Cat Stevens and Neil Young, her singing voice has been compared to Karen Carpenter and her style to Cat Power and Neil Young. In 2009, after moving from Los Angeles back to her hometown, Sarabeth released an early version of a new song, "The Doctor", on the French label Wool and played some shows in that country. Following a break, she recorded her follow-up album Get Well Soon outside of Philadelphia, once again with Luther Russell at the helm. She contributed several songs to the soundtrack of the film Shit Year, directed by Cam Archer, which went to the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. After appearing on tribute records to artists as diverse as The Cure, Cy Coleman and Roky Erickson, her second album Get Well Soon, dealing with the aftermath of the death of her father, was released in March 2011, following which she toured the UK.
