Sarah Fimm (born Sarah Lauren Freidman on September 18 in Tulsa, Oklahoma) is an American singer-songwriter, residing in Woodstock, NY.[1] She toured and collaborated[2] with iconic singer Peter Murphy (of Bauhaus), and supported Delerium[3] in 2008. Her music has been featured on MTV's The Real World and Road Rules, Mark Hamill’s Comic Book: The Movie, D.E.B.S. (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture),[4] and the Lifetime channel, among others. Sarah Fimm’s voice can also be heard on Iggy Pop’s versions of Serge Gainsbourg’s ‘La Javanaise’ and ‘Et Si Tu N`Existais Pas’ (yet to be released). Fimm plays piano and sings and writes her own songs.[5]

Billboard called A Perfect Dream (2002) an album that "contained a chilling, isolated beauty" and Nexus (2004) a "stunning celestial journey."[6] Billboard also compared her work on A Perfect Dream to work by Tori Amos.[7] The Charleston Gazette echoed the comparison to Amos and wrote that Fimm is "not afraid to tell the world how she really feels."[8] In October 2010, Sarah launched the Karma Phala Music Project. Her work on Near Infinite Possibility (2011) showed influences from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Heart.[9] Fimm has also been involved in outdoor art installations through an initiative called Inspire Art.[10]
