Piano virtuoso and singer-songwriter Sara Jackson-Holman has released a new ballad, “Too Late,” off her upcoming album, Didn’t Go to the Party. Starting quietly, with nothing but her gorgeous voice and a piano, the song eventually rises to gospel-like levels with the addition of a backing chorus. “Too Late” takes the listener on an emotional, personal journey through the lens of Jackson-Holman’s voice. Check it out below.
Here’s what Jackson-Holman had to say about the new track:
I liked the idea of this song having a journey, going from my gentle resignation from my relationship, a certainty of the end, to seeing the other side and building strength in the resolution to be on my own. I have shied away from the label of “singer-songwriter” the last couple years because of my affinity for pop and hip hop music, so the style of this song, and album really, is me coming to terms with who I am as a songwriter and a musician. I am a sensitive, emotional person, and so I write songs from that place, and on this album I allowed myself to write and embrace what came most naturally to me.
