Sarah Fimm, is more than just a talented musician, she is a Billboard/Rolling Stone acclaimed composer, singer, and songwriter who already has released seven wonderful albums. With her chaotic yet intoxicating mixture of rock and pop surrounded by the strong alternative presence and soulful lyrics, Fimm’s creations offer a musical experience not just music.

Her latest album Near Infinite Possibility, released in May 2011, has already been featured in the recent Billboard Magazine all while receiving raving reviews from the online community. And today to share her success, Sarah is releasing five of her tracks from the new album exclusively to FrostWire Community free. So download, share, and enjoy.


For those of you who still didn’t have a pleasure of getting to know her music, Sarah Fimm is a talented composer, songwriter, and singer currently living just outside of Woodstock, NY. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, much of Sarah’s inspiration in both her life and music comes from the powerful story of strength and resilience of her grandmother Lilly, a Holocaust survivor.
As a ‘do it yourself’ person, Fimm taught herself how to play piano as a child and had her first song ready at the young age of 14. Being a piano player first and foremost all of her earlier works center on the instrument rather than the vocals. However, ever since the years studying electronic and world music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Fimm’s repertoire have significantly expanded, and now include anything from analog synthesizers, vibraphone, pump organs, etc. etc.

In 2001, her first album Cocooned have been played on over 500 college and commercial radio stations, and released just a year later A Perfect Dream has been called, by the Billboard Magazine, “one of the most enchanting discoveries of the year.” The biggest success however came with the release of Nexus which has been named one of Rolling Stone‘s top albums. The success continued with the music tour and a new Karma Phala Music Project in 2010, containing a collection of 31 songs, videos, and even some of Sarah’s artwork, all for free (still available online).

Recorded in Woodstock and Los Angeles Near Infinite Possibility showcases Fimm’s departure from the more electronic influenced compositions to the emotional and edgy nature of classic rock and alternative sounds (and it’s truly amazing to see just how the work of an artist evolves with time).
Although lyrically the album follows Fimm’s previous explorations of the notion of isolation, love, and subjective reality, it’s move towards the dark ambiance in many of tracks is what truly distinguishes this release from all the others, and “Yellow”, the album’s first single, provides just a right example.

“Yellow”, was inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper,” a dark collection of journal entries written by a woman whose husband has put her on “rest cure;” confining her to a bedroom. The story depicts the effect of confinement on the narrator’s mental health, and her descent into psychosis, paranoia, delusion and desperate fear, as the disparity between reality and the events of her mind crumble.

Sarah’s music is definitely not like any other pop influenced alternative sounds out there; rather it is more of a progression that will only continue to twist and turn in the most unexpected ways. So be sure to check back with the artist once in a while.

Near Infinite Possibility is produced by David Baron of Edison Music, mixed by D. James Goodwin and Rich Travali, and mastered by Greg Calbi; it features the talents of renowned musicians such as Josh Freese (The Vandals, A Perfect Circle), Earl Slick (David Bowie), Danny Blume (Medeski, Martin, and Wood, Jill Sobule), Paul Bushnell (Tracy Chapman, Luciano Pavarotti), Sara Lee (the B-52s), Sterling Campbell (Eric Clapton, B-52s, David Byrne) and more.
