Sara Bareilles’ first album Careful Confessions came out 10 years ago, but it wasn’t until a bit more recently that the singer-songwriter really broke into the mainstream. In 2007, she saw the first signs of mainstream success when her single “Love Song” made it to No. 4 on the Billboard Pop 100 chart and went on to garner her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
Bareilles has been nominated for a Grammy five times since 2009 and this year her album The Blessed Unrest was nominated for Album of the Year, while the single “Brave” was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance. She was also asked to perform a duet with musical legend Carole King, and the two did a mash-up of “Beautiful” and “Brave” at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.
In 2011, Bareilles could be found on your TV screen every week where she was a guest judge on Season 3 of The Sing-Off with fellow musician, Ben Folds. Folds went on to produce her EP Once Upon Another Time in May 2012.
Bareilles will kick off her “Little Black Dress” summer tour in Chicago on July 10.
