Biographies

An original and largely self-reliant musical artist, Blasko is known for her writing and production skills, as well as her unique voice and stage presence.Blasko was first heard in the mid-1990s fronting Sydney band, Acquiesce, after an initial tour of France with founding members Dave Hemmings, Paul Camilleri, and her sister Kate Halcrow. With material written by Blasko and Camilleri, they recorded a single and an EP with producer Hugh Wilson, receiving some local attention.In 2002, Sarah decided to go solo. Material for the Prelusive EP - a result of initial explorative collaborations with Wilson but fully realised with Nick Schneider and Steve Francis - was originally recorded as demos. However, after becoming disillusioned with the indecisiveness and lack of solid commitment from the labels she met with, Blasko decided to release and promote the material independently. With the financial assistance of then-manager Craig New, she also produced a music video for the leading track, Your Way.The track was picked up by local community stations such as 2SER, as well as the national youth broadcaster, JJJ who also gave light rotation to two other EP tracks, Will You Ever Know & Be Tonight. Your Way was also featured on the test loop of fledgling Sydney community radio station 2FBi, when the station began to broadcast full-time.After this initial success, Sarah was approached by and eventually signed to Brisbane-based label, Dew Process, who repackaged and re-released the EP. There are minor variations to the packaging of the major label release, which make the independent release slightly more valuable to collectors.
