Sara Niemietz, Snuffy Walden Preview New Songs On SCVTV’S ‘House Blend’

By Stephen K. Peeples

Return to the Peeples Place at KHTS portal.

Santa Clarita-based rock, soul and torch singer, songwriter, guitarist, recording artist and actress Sara Niemietz, along with her mentor, guitarist, songwriter and producer W.G. “Snuffy” Walden,” are the special guests on the next all-new edition of “House Blend,” the WAVE award-nominated music-and-interview program on SCVTV hosted by veteran music journalist Stephen K. Peeples, debuting Saturday, March 9 at 10 p.m. Pacific Time.

Watch it now: Part 1 and Part 2.

Niemietz (pictured at left), 20, a former band-member on the “Glee” TV series, among other credits going back to a Broadway debut as a pre-teen, and Walden, a 12-time Emmy nominee for his music for TV and a winner for his main theme to “The West Wing,” perform three songs for the first time on television, and introduce a popular video from Niemietz’s most recent EP, “Push Play,” out in 2012.

The songs the duo perform are “Rooftops” (from “Push Play,” with Niemietz also on guitar); “Hey Mister” (new and not yet unrecorded or released),” and “World of My Won,” a new single not on “Push Play.” Niemietz also presents the video for “Go to Bed,” a track from the EP.

Between songs, Peeples talks with Niemietz and Walden for a few minutes about how they met and began collaborating, how some of Sara’s YouTube videos have earned hundreds of thousands of views, the writing and recording “Push Play,” their frequent gigs as members of the all-star Babylon Social Club, her recent collaborations with Richard Marx and B.J. Thomas, and what she’d like to accomplish in the future.

It’s Niemietz’s second “House Blend” appearance accompanied by Walden; in July 2011 they premiered two songs from the not-yet recorded “Push Play.” Viewer response prompted producers to invite the duo back for an encore performance, and a full show featuring four songs.

Niemietz gets cross-eyed trying to balance a new purse in the shape of a chicken on her head, as she recounts how she found the purse in Nashville and had to have it..
