"The Day We Ran Into The Sea" is a musical memoir that details the raw, universal feelings and experiences we all go through when dealing with break ups and shakes ups, love and loss. Each song on the album has a commercial pop sensibility in line with bands like Fleetwood Mac, The Carpenters and The Corrs. However, Sarah’s distinct, haunting vocals portray a more left-field leaning, reminiscent of Beth Gibbons, Regina Spektor, and Kristin Hersh. The album is a mixture of folky, acoustic elements and electric guitars, laced with Celtic elements (contributed to by producer Jon Reynolds, who’s worked with the likes of Sinead O’Connor). The album also features sonic contributions from Head (PJ Harvey), Adrian Hall (Sugababes) and Matt Prime (Will Young). Listen to the entire album at http://www.okgoodrecords.com

He became a talented session musician, touring Europe and the US with various well known bands on bass and acoustic guitars. All this time however, he was writing songs in hotel rooms and learning the craft.
Sarah has been writing songs since she was 13 and roping in any school friend she could find to sing along. Her first real band began shortly after with the help of best friend and neighbour Nia George and two rebellious boys from music class. After several name-changes ’Jylt’ toured Universities and had many successes before tragically ending 5 years later when Nia lost an 18 month battle with Leukaemia and left Sarah and the boys devastated and without a purpose.
The desire to make music and play live was too strong to end there though and when Sarah met Richard, it seemed like an easy and obvious choice to start working together. The pair moved to Wales’s capital, Cardiff for a new start.
