Sarah's childhood was molded by fairytales, show tunes and a warped version of the catechism which served to engage her spirited imagination. Being raised in a European household, her mother from Germany and her father from Spain; Sarah learned that striving for greatness required discipline and over whelming passion, thus creating a very ambitious and dynamic Red head.
As a child, Sarah's musical abilities blossomed at community functions and school events. She could sit for hours making up silly songs like “The Knobby Kneed Noble Knight” and conjuring up Broadway style skits for her friends and families entertainment....
Refreshingly sassy-Jazz; lyrically engaging, musically expressive and well defined in character--it’s exclusively Sarah!
As you imagine Sarah's music; just close your eyes and see a slinky red dress, a big black grand piano and of course Sarah in front of the mic--it's all about a vibe. --Producer Keith Olsen
