Gretchen Lieberum has a couple seemingly incongruous sides to her, which she showcases through two different projects. She’s every bit the disco-funk goof in ...Princess, her duo with SNL alum Maya Rudolph — but she’s also a serious singer-songwriter with a darkly-shaded energy in her music. The graver part of Lieberum’s artistry manifests as Sargent, and she’s dropping her self-titled debut under that moniker today.

"This loss and flux is elegantly woven into the record—cinematic, often piano driven songs delivered with rare hairsbreadth intimacy."

• Sargent Channels Grief Into Art On Self-Titled LP
"I’ve had Sargent playing for a month or so, and every time, it’s a new experience...Throughout the album, as melancholic as the sound is, you can’t help but feel what the artist is feeling — the hurt — the bittersweet taste of it serves it purpose.
