I'm With Her
I'm With Her
I’m With Her is a band rooted in a rare alchemy: three celebrated songwriters coming together to
create music that reveals entirely new possibilities in their distinct and deep
seated talents. Since
forming in 2014, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife
O’Donovan have imbued their songs
with a sharply detailed lyricism, graceful musicianship, and

perhaps most powerfully

mesmerizing harmonies that endlessly reflect their extraordinary chemistry.
The latest single from I’m With Her, “Call My Name” again sh
ows the strength and vitality of
their singular connection. In a departure from the deliberately insular making of their debut
See You Around
, the band pursued a new creative approach centered on true collaboration
with producer Mike Elizondo (Regina
Spektor, Fiona Apple). Recorded at Sound Emporium
Studios in Nashville, “Call My Name” finds Elizondo building a hypnotic sonic backdrop,
matching the track’s quietly urgent beat with I’m With Her’s delicate interplay of guitar,
Wurlitzer, and fiddle. The
result is a song both stark and luminous, perfectly capturing the potent
tension within even the most loving relationship.
After years of crossing paths in their intersecting music scenes, Watkins, Jarosz, and O’Donovan
founded I’m With Her following an
impromptu gig at the Sheridan Opera House in Telluride.
Over the coming years they began playing shows and festivals around the world, in addition to
taking time out for a number of intensely focused writing sessions (including
eight days spent in
ul seclusion at a borrowed Vermont farmhouse). Arriving in early 2018,
See You Around
quickly drew critical acclaim and ultimately graced best
year lists from leading outlets
like the New York Times, NPR Music, and Paste.
Along with
See You Aroun
, 2018 saw the release of multiple singles from I’m With Her,
including a remix by Tune
Yards of “Game to Lose,” a rendition of Adele’s “Send My Love (To
Your New Lover),” and a Spotify Session featuring their version of Vampire Weekend’s
“Hannah Hunt” (a
cover that fast became a fan favorite at shows). Nominated for Duo/Group of
the Year by the Americana Music Association and Artist of the Year at the International Folk
Music Awards, the band has also taken the stage on late
night shows like Jimmy Kimmel
and Last Call with Carson Daly.
With upcoming U.S. performances including Red Rocks
Amphitheatre in Colorado and Newport Folk Festival in
Rhode Island, I’m With Her will soon
make their debut across Australia.
