Sarah Krueger

Sarah Krueger is Eau Claire, WI born and Duluth, MN built. Between stretches of teaching jobs, waiting tables, and holing up in a cold Duluth hillside apartment, Sarah has crafted a lustrous folk sound that serves as a breathing foundation for her earnest and straightforward songwriting. After three years of stints at Erik Koskinen’s Real Phonic Studio in Minneapolis, Sarah and her rotating cohort of applauded artists carved out a record laced with a moody brightness and authentic vibe.

In three years time, we have Lustrous, Krueger’s sophomore album featuring JT Bates and Erik Pollard on drums, Erik Koskinen on guitar, and Steve Garrington and Frankie Lee on bass. Sean Carey, Jordan Taylor, Don House, Ben Lester, Jake Hanson, and Kyle Keegan also lend a hand in rounding out the songs as they come to fruition. This batch of songs are three years worth of finding light in our most human moments, noticing the brightness before we were tainted and tired, and believing in the luster that shows itself when we are most alive. At times the songs find themselves in a dark place, often indifferent and working through to the light, whereas some stand alone in the shine. Krueger’s zealous performing and prevailing voice offer a fresh presence to the stage and seem to hit all the soft spots in the complicated space between us all.
