On this, her third solo album, SARAH DOUGHER has successfully created a world where disguises are worn, sexual deception is the norm, truth is counterfeit and fake is real. The Bluff explores a diverse sonic and emotional landscape and is a leap forward in musical prowess. DOUGHER's voice puts on masks, creating a myriad of roles. Imagine DUSTY SPRINGFIELD singing LUCINDA WILLIAMS songs over the music of THE SMITHS. John Nikki's original and fanciful guitar playing propel the songs as they turn the corner on rock and pop. Janet Weiss (SLEATER-KINNEY, QUASI) plays drums/percussion and guest vocalist Corin Tucker (SLEATER-KINNEY and CADALLACA) lays down her trademark tunnel yell. In case you didn't already know from reading about her in the NY Times, SARAH DOUGHER is a professor, designer, scholar, activist and singer/songwriter. This year she shared the stage with such luminaries as Amy Ray of THE INDIGO GIRLS, LE TIGRE, BETH ORTON, BARBARA MANNING, RUFUS WAINWRIGHT, and SLEATER-KINNEY. SARAH will tour the US, Europe, Japan, and Australia in the Fall and Spring.
