Tue, Jan 23 2018: SARAH LONGFIELD

Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of SARAH LONGFIELD. The extremely gifted American guitarist and YouTube shooting star with several million clicks will release her next album via the label.


Check out SARAH LONGFIELD performing "Quiescent" here!

SARAH LONGFIELD comments: "I'm really excited to announce that I'll be signing with Season of Mist, home of such exciting acts as ARCHSPIRE, BEYOND CREATION, CYNIC, SHINING, and many more. I can't wait to see what the future brings and to be working with such a great group of people!"


Season of Mist CEO, Michael Berberian explains: "On a lazy hotel-room morning, I was checking one of our new videos on YouTube when Sarah's 'Cranial Metropolis' started playing randomly. Pro tech-guitarwork with female vocals? I was hooked. Somebody, who is playing on such a level at this age is called a 'lifer' and in it for the long run. Somebody, who gets so many views without any label support obviously has the right attitude towards working hard. Orianthi, Gretchen Menn, and Jen Majura to name a few, have all followed in the footsteps of excellent female rock and metal guitarists in recent years, but none have been going full tech like Sarah does. I realized I would love to work with her as she has a rare talent that fits our roster perfectly. It really was a no-brainer and by the time her next video was playing, I was already typing an introductory email to Sarah."
