The Odyssey in Sarah’s Words

Sarah Lynch

“I met Wayne through Juliet Turner on an Irish tour she was doing a few years ago and I guess we saw madness in each other as we clicked! Wayne told me he would produce my first album, so knowing he was a seasoned rockstar and that I needed seasoning at the time , I took him up on the offer. Off we went to Annaghmakerrig to begin the collaborative journey in the amazing and beautiful Tyrone Guthrie Centre. I was a bit nervous at first as we barely knew each other and I thought ‘what if he thinks my songs are terrible?’ but the wine at dinner sorted out any nerves and the album began to take shape that very evening.
We ran out of time there so we snatched our next few moments in Kilcrohane, Co Cork. We were in a house that seemed to be situated on the edge of the world. The solitude was inspirational and we worked without interruption for a few days until we thought it best to move on, before the combination of the pitch black countryside and unexpectedly-placed cliff edges led to the demise of one or the other of us.

On we went to my home from home, Druid Theatre in the heart of Galway. As far as I can see there’s never any harm in adding a dash of theatricality to an album. We stayed in Galway long enough to begin to forget what in Gods name we were here for in the first place, due to the welcoming nature of the Galwegians and their all too homely hostelries so we relocated once again to Temple Bar in Dublin to attempt to become hip again. When I saw Wayne wearing a Gold medallion one day I thought enough was enough so on we went up to the Leinster Cricket Club. We finally ended up on the Vico Road in Dalkey where we found an inspiring view of the sea and a washing machine. I have no idea why it took so long but thank you for your patience.”
