about

Sarah and the Wild Versatile are a fresh addition to the Boston music scene; teaming their long-standing performance experience and wide range of musical expertise with unique instrumental ingenuity and lyrical prowess. Ranging from blues to synth rock, folk to soul, and most anything in between, Sarah and the Wild Versatile have been taking the Boston Music scene by storm; performing with Grammy award winner Booker T. Jones, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Danny Bedrosian’s Secret Army featuring members of Parliament Funkadelic, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Jesse Dee, Ruby Rose Fox, and many others.

"Sarah Seminski is a bit like a perfect storm, quietly brewing one moment, powerful energy in the next. Her powerhouse vocals remind one of a young Tina Turner and demand attention. Her partner in crime for some time, Eric Reardon, was a guitar virtuoso when he was 15, is now ripened to a 25 year vintage. Imagine another decade. Dynamic, versatile, and yes... definitely wild." -Seth McNally, M.E. Productions

Sarah and the Wild Versatile are currently performing throughout the Northeast.

Track Name: Should've Known
We're walking a fine line in the middle of now and never
And the tree of knowledge is as soft as newly tanned leather

You should've known
You should've known

That there is no name attached to my skin that I can remember
So if there were ties that bound us together let's sever

Cause you should've known
You should've known

You hide yourself from the sun cause you can't stand the burning
You wait impatiently holding out your arms for the one you yearn for

Cause she brushed you off
And you should've known

Trains pass every minute on the hour and you're afraid you might fall
So you walk round trip around your world that is so small

Cause she brushed you off
And you should've known

That we're walking a fine line in the middle of now and never
And the tree of knowledge is as soft as newly tanned leather

You should've known
You should've known

That there is no name attached to my skin that I can remember
So if there were ties that bound us together let's sever

Cause you should've known
You should've known

You hide yourself from the sun cause you can't stand the burning
Trains pass every minute on the hour and you're afraid you might fall
So you take pills, take time, take one
It will make you feel better
But the more self-sufficient we become
The less we wanna touch each other

So I brushed you off
And you should've known
Track Name: Fall Into Grace
I hear your name it’s like a pounding in my brain
Like a hangover that keeps me sleeping in my bed
So I throw the covers over me cause I don’t want nobody to see
These visions of azure that you gave here to me

Like a present that I stole
Now it’s written across my face
I will feed upon your hunger til we fall into grace

I ain’t go no shame
No I ain't got anything to hide
Cause shame is something that you feel when you’re trying to cover up something inside

But these presents that you stole
Now it’s written across your face
You will feed upon my hunger til we fall into grace

What’s her name?
Do you whisper into her ear at night, “My sweet baby girl, don’t cry, everything’s alright.”
Meanwhile she’s over by the riverside
She’s holding onto rabbit's feet praying for the missing peace of all the nights that will follow no more.

You can call this sentimental
You can call this whatever you like
But my rage now has a face when I close my eyes at night

With these presents that you stole
You know they're written all across your face

You will feed upon my hunger til you fall, fall, fall
Gimme those presents that you stole
See the pain all across my face
I will feed upon your hunger til you fall, fall.
Track Name: Sherman's March / After the Fall
March step by step and side to side
60,000 wide into this darkness we fight
And I've got sweet Georgia on my mind
I came here running blind, into a heart so open wide
Her beauty young and kind
I have to march all night, 60000 wide.

Like a distant lullaby, the nights are ligned with a million fireflies
Green was the valley that lived in her eyes
Covered with moss white roses ivy vines
Soiled in scarlett red like wine over century old blood lines
War is so unkind.

March step by step and side to side
60,000 wide into this darkness we fight
And I've got sweet Georgia on my mind
I came here running blind, into a heart so open wide

Ready
Aim
Fire

A million fireflies
Green was the valley that lived in her eyes
War is so unkind.

Sky is falling trees are burning down, down, down
Tide is turning love is burning down, down, down

Did you think our love could last after the fall?
Did you think our love could last after the fall?
Track Name: Sunday Morning
Baby don't make me wait
This rat race is always in the way
I wanna give my love like Sunday mornings and holidays

I love you like my heart breaks
All at once
All the time
You're the first thing I wake up to
You're the last thing on my mind

It's you
With me
And all the world's inside and at our feet

Our faults
Are wings

Let's fly
And touch the open sky

Whatcha gonna do about it?

I do anything for you
Even when I'm scared
The risk of love is worth it for the home we share
You're mine tonight when the lights go out and this race is through
Win or lose.

It's you
With me
And all the world's inside and at our feet

Our faults
Are wings

Let's fly
And touch the open sky

Whatcha gonna do about it?
Track Name: Let You Go
I gave you the keys to our memories
You get to keep as far as your eyes can see
Not what’s inside of me
That part’s now free
But it’s been so long
I don’t know what to do, how to think, who to be

And oh those memories
Those long days, longer nights shared between you and me
We were trying to set fire to our dreams

One of my favorite games was trying to catch your flame
But then you called her name, nothing would ever be the same

You asked me to jump
And you said the risk was worth taking
I would do anything for the love we were making

You’ve given her everything and I’m trying not to care
But this pain i’m feeling inside get me going no where

Yeah, there’s been a lot of talk around town
Seems like everybody wants to know my business

You took all I had and now I don’t need it

Cause I’m gonna let you go
There’s no way to know
If this will go fast or slow
I just know it hurts like hell

I’m gonna let you go
There’s no way to know
If I do this right or wrong
I guess only time will tell

There will be no last dance
There will be no second chance
No silent reviews of the time I made you cry
There will be no hand shake
No goodbye like on our first date
This time I’m gonna cut the red ribbon
It’s the end so I could begin
Track Name: Kristine
YOU COME LIKE A MEMORY
WHEN WE’RE LOST ON OUR STREET AT # 33

THE SMELL OF SWEET MAGNOLIA
IT LINGERS IN YOUR HAIR
I CAN SEE IT EVERYWHERE

YOU USED TO LIE LOW TO THE GROUND
AND PRAY NOT TO BE FOUND

I TOLD EVERY LIE I KNEW TO KEEP FROM LOSING YOU
KEEP FROM LOSING YOU

WE USED TO KEEP WATCH VERY NIGHT
JUST TO STAY SAFE FROM THE FIGHTS
BUT WHAT WE FELT INSIDE

YOU’D LIKE UP LIKE A CANDLE
BEFORE LETTING ME SEE YOUR EYES
WITH BURNING FIRE INSIDE

BUT THE BOND WAS IN OUR VEINS
AND I FELT THE SAME

OH NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
KRISTINE I DON’T KNOW WHY
I DON’T KNOW WHY

NOW HERE WE ARE AGAIN
WITH YOU MY OLDEST FRIEND
WHERE THE BEGINNING MEETS THE END

YOUR SKIN SO PAPER THIN
WE’RE DANCING ONCE AGAIN
JUST YOU ME AND THE WIND

ASHES TO ASHES WE ALL FALL DOWN
YOU THE OCEAN, ME THE GROUND
IT'S BEEN SO HARD TO SMILE UNTIL THE RAINBOW CAME

YOU MUST’VE SENT IT MY WAY
Track Name: Pleather Jacket Mambo
If you’d realize the coldness inside of me
Then you’d know that I’ll never let it go
No no no

The slow end of what once was a dream
The mirror shows what you are, not what you want to be.
No no no

Yet nothing will ever feel as good as when you leave
Expect nothing so obscene as when you believe

And I’m gonna haunt you for that

The world around you that used to mean so much
When seasons change it really treats you so rough
No no no

You could have it all and it still won’t be enough
You love to need and you really love to touch
No No No

Yet nothing will ever feel as good as when you leave
Expect nothing so obscene as when you believe

And I’m gonna haunt you for that.

You can never guess what’s inside an exoskeleton
Lament the meat but save the rest all for your lies

To take all that garbage that’s inside your mind

But never forget nothing fits you like your second skin.
Track Name: Hands To The Sky
Now I got you, the jig is up
I rolled up my sleeves and discovered what was hidden the whole time

Yeah you were playing like a Spider-man with me
But when I took off your mask, I discovered you were not really mine

Yeah you were playing with my who, what, where, when, why
You were trying to be everyone and everything to me

You scored 4 out of 5 in record time
While I was acting out your script, but I was really reading blind

You can call this what you want
I can sing it like a song
I can feel it roll around my mind before it slips off my tongue

But the past is in my bones and I can’t wash that off
Like mascara at the last goodbye
When I couldn’t find a tear to cry
If the past gives me my present then I don’t know why

I raise my hands to the sky to measure the distance between you and I.
Beyond the treetops the star light hits your face, and I can’t make you stay

Well you ain't no bird, no fighter plane, no Mr. Superman
I'm no damsel in distress, I just need a helping hand

You saw my cuts shine like diamonds in the light
How was I to know that was your kryptonite

Yeah you were playing with my who, what, when, where, why
You were trying to be everything I want and everything I need

Scored 4 out of 5 and half the time you were trying to convince me that you could read my mind

And you can call this what you want, I'm gonna sing it like a song
I could feel it roll around my mind before it slips off my toungue

I got some coulda shoulda woulda's wreaking havoc in my mind
Circles can't fit into squares like I can't change the time

No matter what I say or do or try
If the past gives me the present, I don't know why

I raise my hands to the sky to measure the distance between you and I.
Beyond the treetops the star light hits your face, and I can’t make you stay

But the past is in my bones and I can’t wash that off
Like mascara at the last goodbye
When I couldn’t find a tear to cry
If the past gives me my present then I don’t know why

I raise my hands to the sky to measure the distance between you and I.
Beyond the treetops the star light hits your face, and I can’t make you stay
Track Name: Dear Lee
I’m so goddamn lonely
I eat by myself
I talk in the mirror, it don’t talk back
At least I have my health

I think of my dear Lee
Then I go see a movie
I cry the whole time
There’s a fine line between comedy and tragedy

I miss you Dear Lee
Send your love to me
Take away my misery
and run into my arms again, sweet Lee

And I still have them photos
I look at from time to time
Yeah those were the good times
Acting like sad clowns and drinking red wine

We look bad in these pictures
But that camera don’t lie
So I close my eyes, and we look glorious
I remember you better in my mind.

I miss you Dear Lee
Send your love to me
Take away my misery
and run into my arms again, sweet Lee

Remember that River Road
Or parking the car?
Or laughing and crying, and screaming and moaning and moaning for hours
Remember the moonlight?
Or walking on fire, or trying to reach heaven trying to get higher, and higher, and higher?

Remember this song that you’d sing to me?


I sang this song a thousand times
But the only thing I could never touch is your tone-deaf melody
Your tone deaf melody
I miss you
Send your love
Take away my misery
and run into my arms again
Track Name: There Must Be A Rainbow Somewhere
There must be a rainbow, somewhere
After that hurricane has ripped up apart
Left nothing but memories
Soggy houses and broken hearts

There must be a rainbow, somewhere
Close or far from the siren’s howl
Trying to save what the rain decimated
Keep people safe from harm

Power lines are down now
It will take time before they’re up again

There must be a rainbow, somewhere
In the distance there’s thunder and lightning
Mother nature are you trying to tell us something
Or are you so far gone, it’s frightening

There must be a rainbow, somewhere
It’s time to go out and see
The Hail can’t shoot it down
Neither can a bullet
Neither can we
