Yesterday, you might have heard soulful songstress Sarah Packiam's song as the soundtrack to County Grind's latest video endeavor: Interviewing a mermaid
. When it came time to find a song that complemented a beautiful magical sea creature, Packiam's folk, blues, pop tunes came to mind. And, whaddya know? They fit the feminine visuals perfectly.
In her Irish accent, the singer and songwriter told us that she's been working on a second album, writing, recording, gigging, you know, the works. We asked what was inspiring her now to make music, she said it was her new 6 M13 pedal, "I've been experimenting with distortion sounds, going back to basics, and asking my dad for more guitar lessons [a blues musician]. Every time I sit with the pedal, I come up with these crazy distorted sounds." Packiam is truly a siren committed to her sound.
