But Sara hadn’t released a CD since 2010’s best of, Calling me home — and hadn’t recorded an album of all-new material since 2007’s Silver Skies. She was now a wife and the proud mother of three young boys, living in Darwin with her family, away from the spotlight. Sara couldn’t recall the last song she wrote — all she knew was that it had been some time. But then a funny thing happened . . 

 

‘I really didn’t want to go to Tamworth,’ recalls Sara, picking up the story. ‘I felt as though I’d lost my place a bit. But I had this show with my brother Greg, who I really love sharing gigs with — I can be my true self. Prior to the show I ran into John Williamson, who’d just released Big Red, and he had this sparkle in his eye. I was so inspired that he could keep writing these amazing songs; he never seems to run out. Then I had an amazing gig with Greg — and came away even more inspired.’
