Sick of Sarah is the Minnesota based fivesome of Abisha Uhl (lead vocals, guitar), Jessie Farmer (guitar and backup vocals), Jamie Holm (bass and backup vocals), Katie Murphy (guitar and backup vocals), and Jessica Forsythe (drums). They are the latest in a lineage of all girl rock bands that includes The Go-Gos and The Bangles, and strong female rock artists like Pat Benatar and Joan Jett. To put it another way - they’ll rock your socks off.
I caught up Abisha Uhl and Jessica Forsythe at Warped Tour's Uniondale, NY, date to discuss the band's music, their interesting living situation, which involves a house in Minnesota that’s also their studio, what needs to be done to get more women involved in rock music, and the band’s extensive work in the LGBT community. Abisha and Jessica also revealed some of their more embarrassing celebrity crushes from when they were growing up, at least a few of whom were more than a little random... and little in general.
Big ups to videographer Natty S. for capturing this, and all my Warped Tour interviews.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
