“I’ve always adored that a song can become a memory in itself of a person, of a relationship, of a moment,” says Sadler. “‘Drop The Needle Down’ was written to capture just that: a snapshot in time where a single song becomes your whole world. It invites you to revel in that simple moment, when everything revolves around one person and a song.”
The track opens with the gentle sound of a needle dropping on a record and eases into a melodic guitar riff that sets the mood for Sadler’s angelic vocals. With lyrics like “we’ll keep dancing barefoot on the hardwood floor” and “perfect night with the vinyl spinning” the single evokes nostalgic memories of being in the moment with a loved one.
Sadler has quickly gained recognition as one to watch on the Canadian country music scene since releasing her debut EP The Light in 2015. Recorded with John D. Willis (Kenny Chesney, Shania Twain, Faith Hill) at his Willisoundz studio in Nashville, TN, the EP features the single “Nice Just Ain’t Your Colour,” which secured Sadler a semi-finalist position in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition. Classically trained in both piano and vocals, Sadler has taken the stage at the YGK Craft Beer Fest, as well as a debut writer’s round alongside award-winning songwriter Steve Wilkinson (The Wilkinsons). This year has proven that Sadler’s star is on the rise, having recently been selected to showcase at the CCMA Country Music Week as part of the “Diamonds in the Rough” showcase.
