Jason Spooner Band Opens
“Borges’ material is grounded in Americana even as it morphs from folk to rock and even soul” - ALLMUSIC
"Contemporaries like Patty Griffin, Slaid Cleaves and Grammy winner Ray LaMontagne, represent only a small cross section of Maine's rich heritage of sourcing a special breed of thought-provoking artist. Maine's most recent emerging heirs to the musical throne come in an impressive pack of three; Portland's own Jason Spooner Trio." - High Times
Known for delivering memorable live performances, SARAH BORGES music has been praised for being “grittily brilliant and brilliantly rollicking...walking that fine line between punk and country”.
Hailing from Taunton, Massachusetts, Borges majored in musical theatre at Emerson College and was signed to her first record label in 2004 on the strength of a performance at the South by Southwest Festival. After much national touring, Borges and her band The Broken Singles, were signed by Sugar Hill Records in 2007. Her latest album, Radio Sweetheart, was released in 2014.
Borges’ wide variety of influences range from Dolly Parton, Mahalia Jackson, X, Sid Vicious, Merle Haggard, to bubblegum pop.

Whether you’re a fan of great songwriting or power-house live performance, Jason Spooner and his fabulous band represent a formidable emerging act that should be watched closely.
