Sarah Borges roared into Americana as the lead singer of the Broken Singles. After a stint solo, she’s back with the band, and they released a new album, Love’s Middle Name, on Oct. 12 via Blue Corn Music.
Now, Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles open for The Bottle Rockets at Gypsy Sally’s on Thursday, Oct. 18.
Along the way from frontwoman to solo artist to frontwoman again, Sarah made seven records and racked up countless touring miles in addition to earning an Americana Music Awards nomination, multiple Boston Music Awards, and song credits on TV shows Sons of Anarchy and The Night Shift.
“I’m not slowing down,” Sarah said. “I’m gonna keep on seeking the next sound, the next song, the next chapter of who I am.”

In a review for Americana Highways, Melissa Clarke praised the complexity of the new album.
“Fans of Americana music generally appreciate emotional honesty and lyrical complexity, and they also appreciate the most perfect hooky licks and melodies that won’t leave your mind even if you wanted them to — and you don’t. But not all musicians can capture both of these elements,” Melissa wrote. “So when an album comes along that has both these qualities, it’s reason to stand up and take notice. Sarah Borges’ Love’s Middle Name… achieves this rare balance: exciting bold rock music supporting emotionally genuine lyrics.”
