Sara Bareilles first achieved mainstream critical praise in 2007 with her widely successful hit "Love Song,” which reached No. 1 in 22 countries around the world from her debut album “Little Voice.” Since then, the Eureka, Calif. native has gone on to receive five Grammy nominations throughout her career, which include Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Love Song.” Bareilles' highly anticipated sophomore release “Kaleidoscope Heart” was released September 2010, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 chart and has gained praise everywhere including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, People and Los Angeles Times. The album yielded the hit single “King of Anything,” which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and was certified platinum by the RIAA.
In 2012 she released her highly revered “Once Upon Another Time” EP, which was produced by singer/songwriter Ben Folds. Her highly acclaimed third studio album, “The Blessed Unrest,” released in 2013 via Epic Records, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart and was nominated for two Grammy Awards including the coveted Album of the Year and Best Pop Performance for her hit single “Brave.”
Her book, Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) In Song, was released in the fall of 2015 by Simon & Schuster and is a NY Times best seller. Making her Broadway debut, Bareilles wrote the music for the new show “Waitress,” for which she received her first Tony Award nomination for Best Score. “What’s Inside: Songs from Waitress,” her most recent solo studio album, is out now on Epic Records.
