Sadie Horler Releases ‘Lighting Gas’
We’re delighted to reveal that Sadie Horler is our Country Release Friday pick with MAM Roots this week. Sadie’s new single ‘Lighting Gas’ is out now on all platforms and tune into @mam_roots IGTV from 6pm today for an exclusive live performance video.
Talking about her new single, Sadie explains, “‘Lighting Gas’ fired up my song writing style. It’s a song about someone who questions your sanity and perception on reality.”
With her haunting vocals, Sadie performs with warmth and authenticity, captivating her audience with her engaging but unaffected presence. Her heartfelt lyrics are inspired by events and people around her with every song telling a compelling story you do not want to miss.
Setting the foundations of her musical journey by busking on the streets of Exeter, Devon at age 14, Sadie’s hard work and dedication to music has paid off and she has established herself as a firm favourite on the South West music scene. Moving to Brighton in 2019 to study at the University of Brighton, Sadie Horler has had a huge success by winning the first She Shore competition at the award winning venue Ropetackle in West Sussex.
Sadie’s latest release ‘No Words’ reached number 17 in the iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts and was added to AlexRainBird Music’s ‘Tender Love’ playlist. ‘Game Over’, released in 2020 was featured on Mahongany’s ‘Chilled Acoustic’ compilation on YouTube attracting over quarter of a million views. Her debut single ‘Washed up Mermaid’ in 2019was played numerous times on BBC Radio 6 by Tom Robinson after being chosen as a ‘fresh fave’ on ‘Fresh on the Net’.
During her relatively short musical career Sadie has performed at a multitude of festivals such as Boardmasters, Wonderfields, Beautiful Days, and HowTheLightGetsIn, plus many more. Her mesmerising voice has not gone unnoticed within the industry with Universal Studios jumping at the chance to use her vocals for American fantasy television series ‘Emerald City’ and Heart FM commissioning her for primetime commercials.
With many of her self-penned songs being broadcast on their show and three ‘Uploads of the Week’, BBC Introducing in Devon and Cornwall are huge supporters of Sadie’s music. They have invited her to their Plymouth studio to play live in session and to the BBC Introducing Festival Stage. She was also chosen to play on Radio 1’s closing showcase at their academy when the R1 Big
Weekend came to Exeter in 2016. BBC Introducing have described Sadie as “Phenomenal” & “One of the finest young female musicians they have discovered”.
