Sarah McGowan has “Big Feelings”
“Big Feelings” is an upbeat, synth-driven love song with a massive sing-along chorus. It’s a song about moving on from a broken heart and opening yourself up to having big feelings for someone new. The arrangement features throwback synthesizers and lush, ethereal vocal stacks. I’m releasing this song during a difficult time in the hopes that it will spread some joy and remind us that life will be beautiful again.
Since the 2014 release of her first single, “Williamsburg Boy”, Sarah McGowan has built a reputation for writing catchy pop songs. A prolific songwriter, Sarah has released two EPs (“Indian Summer”, “A Little Intimate”) and a full length album (“For Whom They Sing”). Her music quickly earned her praise, with Medleyville.us writing that her debut album was “on par with recent efforts by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson”. Sarah’s music has also been featured in publications such as The Huffington Post and NPR’s 51 Percent podcast (the latter featuring her side-by-side with Dolly Parton, calling her song “Molly” a modern day “Jolene”).
Several of her songs have been featured on official BMI and Alternative Press playlists. Also active in the sync licensing world, Sarah co-wrote/performed the album Taboo for APM Music. Sarah’s songs have been featured in media such as Netflix’s Cable Girls, NBC’s Superstore, ABC’s Mistresses, and CBC’s Hello Goodbye. She is currently signed with Sweets & Pop for music licensing. A native of the New York City area, she currently resides in Los Angeles.
