Portland House of Music and Events
with special guest with Becca Biggs.
North Carolina’s Sarah Shook sings with a conviction and hard honesty sorely lacking in much of today’s Americana landscape. Always passionate, at times profane, Sarah stalks/walks the line between vulnerable and menacing, her voice strong and uneasy, country classic but with contemporary, earthy tension. You can hear in her voice what’s she’s seen; world weary, lessons learned—or not—but always defiant. She level-steady means what she says. Writing with a blunt urgency—so refreshing these days it’s almost startling—Sarah’s lyrics are in turn smart, funny, mean, and above all, uncompromising. The Disarmers hit all the sweet spots from Nashville’s Lower Broad to Bakersfield and take Sarah’s unflinching tales out for some late-night kicks. At times, it’s as simple and muscular as Luther Perkins’ boom-chicka-boom, or as downtown as Johnny Thunders. The Disarmers keep in the pocket, tight and tough.
Born in Memphis, TN and raised in Maine, Becca Biggs draws from her roots and embraces a blend of vintage country, folk, indie, alternative, and classic rock. She plays an electric banjo and is backed by a band that is dynamic, fun, and loud. Her first single, “I Can’t Take It” was named Portland Press Herald’s “Maine’s Song of the Week” and recieved air time on WCYY, WCLZ, and other locals stations. She released a full length album, “Genie”, in May of 2022 and it can be streamed everywhere online.
