“Lov’s voice draws you in with its intimate whispered quality” – CLASH

Hawaii born singer/songwriter Sara Lov returns with her third studio album, ‘Some Kind of Champion’, released 30th October. Having released her last album in 2011, Lov states, “This album is very personal. So much time passed since my last album of originals, that, when it finally came out of me, it felt precise. Maybe the time I spent away from writing and recording solidified exactly what my voice is and how it would best be expressed”.
Lov teamed up with Zac Rae of Death Cab for Cutie who produced and mixed the record having worked with the likes of My Brightest Diamond and Fiona Apple. Recorded in Zac’s Los Angeles studio, ‘Some Kind of Champion’, features collaborations with Hauschka, Dustin O’Halloran, Scott Leahy, Ed Maxwell, Zac Rae, Cedric Lemoyne & Jonathan Price.
There’s a mass of personal history and culture that’s reflected in Lov’s rich and eclectic songwriting style throughout ‘Some Kind of Champion’. Raised by her mother in Los Angeles after the divorce of her parents, at the age of five Lov was kidnapped by her father and taken to Israel. Living as an international fugitive from justice for over a decade, she was rescued by an uncle who raised her upon her return to the United States.
