Sara Bareilles checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Thursday (May 21), echoing the thoughts of Mandy Moore about the metal band documentary ‘Anvil’. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I just watched the movie ANVIL. It’s unbelievable. It made me want to perm my hair and join a metal band and move to Czechoslovakia and play shows in underground pubs and write songs about leather.
I knew nothing about the band, but saw the preview and immediately was super excited to see it. It seriously is an incredible documentary. For such a seemingly hardcore subject matter, this movie is poignant and tender, capturing moments where you truly see how very deeply these men care about this band and each other. I bawled like a baby. (shocker of the year.)
I sound like a freaking advertisement, but seriously it was an awesome movie.
Sara Bareilles updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Wednesday (April 15), where the singer songwriter talked about her song ‘Many The Miles’. Bareilles writes:
I’m on a flight to Nashville right now and I’m sitting behind a man with a rather pungent odor. I’m not complaining, but I am offering my earnest support towards people showering. On a regular basis. No, seriously.
And I’m listening to my iPod and oddly enough, Many the Miles just came on. I always skip my own songs, but this time I’m going to listen.
So I wrote this song as a reminder to myself to keep going in search of love and truth and light and it remains to be and ideal I love to stay connected to.
I suck at it a lot of the time actually, to be honest. I get bitchy, and bored, and irritable, and uninspired and I spend a lot of energy on what i don’t like about myself. But at the end of a good day I can take solace in the fact that I am someone who truly wants to be peaceful. Who knows I have the capacity to be truly happy. Not every moment of everyday… but sometimes, and if I’m really committed… a lot of the time.
Sara Bareilles updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Wednesday (March 11), apologizing for having to postpone her show tonight at Hotel Cafe. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Hello all. I am writing to you in a bit of a panic (but a good kind…I’ll explain later) and with mixed feelings. I am extremely sorry to have to announce that our Thursday, March 12 show at Hotel Café will have to be postponed. I hope you all know that the postponement of a show is not something I take remotely lightly, but I had an amazing opportunity come to me and I have to make myself available for it. I can’t go into too much detail right now, but as soon as it’s possible to let you all in on it, I will. I can’t say enough how sorry I am for the inconvenience, and please know we are working on how to make it up to Thursday night ticket holders.

Sara Bareilles updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Tuesday (February 3), revealing her next and final single off ‘Little Voice’ will be ‘Gravity’. Sara will be performing the song on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ tonight. Bareilles writes:
We are releasing our next single off of “Little Voice” and it’s the final song on the album, called ‘Gravity’. It’s actually also the oldest song on the record and we have just completed the video for it! I can’t wait for you guys to check it out. It’s the literal interpretation of leaving ‘Gravity’ behind, and I might be biased, but I think it’s beautiful. Thanks everyone
who made that happen.

Sara Bareilles updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Tuesday (December 16). The Los Angeles based singer songwriter tells readers:
I recently wrote a new song. I’ve been doing a lot of that lately actually, as I’m finding myself getting ready to have a bit more time on my hands. At this point I’m taking a few weeks of much needed time off to start thinking about the next chapter, the next record, the new batch of songs, everything. The prospect of a whole month to myself to just hole up and get cozy with the idea of creating new music, and reconnecting with my life at home is incredible. And fu**ing scary.
The song is called Anchors Away and that’s how I feel right now. even though it seems a bit counterintuitive that spending more time at home would feel like setting out to sea, but it’s true. I’m simply not used to it. We have been so blessed this year with a million and one adventures, amazing touring experiences, nights out on the town, dance parties, injuries, arguments, laughter, all wrapped up as an oddly perfect collection of memories. And I’m so grateful.
I wish I could give you guys an idea of what to expect (if you are interested in expecting anything) but to be totally honest, I’m not really sure myself. There is nothing concrete at this point other than the fact that yes I am working on the next record and the writing process is the coolest experiment I’ve experienced up to this point. I’m trying to push myself in all sorts of directions to see what feels good. What is the most fun to sing, to play, to talk about…whatever. It’s incredibly inspiring for me, and I can’t wait to share all these ideas with you eventually. I’m sure some of you will be stoked and some of you will be pissed with what comes out, but that’s life and I’ve learned to embrace how incredibly diverse my fans are. I truly feel like you guys are the coolest, most rock-solid group of people out there and so thanks for listening up to this point.
