Sarah Fierek’s drive to make a difference continues with ‘Mustang’

Milwaukee singer-songwriter Sarah Fierek always tries to make an impact with her music — not only on the listener, but also on the community. Her latest is no exception and carries a little something extra: a deep emotional tie to her family.

“Mustang” (not coincidentally released on National Mustang Day) is as much a coping mechanism as a piece of music, having been created days after Fierek’s father died. One of the things he left behind was a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that was still in the process of being restored. The ultimate goal is to finish that project, which coincidentally left the car in a condition that resulted in only the letters “U S-A-N-G” remaining on the trunk.

The singing Fierek does on the track is distinctly country in nature, and she had the support of several Nashville-based session musicians during the recording process. Speaking of support, proceeds from the song will go toward the Center for Veterans Issues and its mission to improve the quality of life for all veterans, their families and the communities in which they live and serve.
