He said, you got the key, the sky is forever – Shelter and Sky

Welcome to Davaar

Davaar, with members Dave McMillan and Sara Marlowe, grew out of Sara Marlowe & the Program as a project to explore the intersection of acoustic and electronic music in composition and live performance. The songs available in the music player on this page represent some of our first experiments with loops and programming, and include remixes of three songs from Sara's CD True Stories. They are She Is All Of Us, True Stories and What You've Done. Enjoy the music and let us know what you think by following the "Contact" link on the left.

New Songs

We continue to add new tunes to our live sets, including Waterlog, a rockin' version of Dirty Little Secret, and two of Sara's classics: Fall Down On My Knees and Truth Be Told. We also pay tribute to our favourites and influences with some new covers too. All hail Air, Beta Band, Massive Attack, Pearl Jam, Portishead and of course, Elbow... we can't get enough of Elbow!
