Sarah Lynch

New York City-based vocalist Sarah Lynch brings much more to the microphone than just a great set of pipes. She and music have been friends since she started studying piano at age five. Her playing led to singing, which led to composing, and now, with a masters degree in piano performance from UCLA, this upcoming singer-songwriter knows her way around a piece of music.

Her first album, Haunted Heart, released Fall 2006 on Runt One Records, includes five originals and seven not-so-standard standards from the '20s and '40s. Recorded in New York City in February 2006, the other musicians on the album include: Pete McCann, guitar; Mark Ferber, drums; Phil Palombi, bass; Tim Albright, trombone; Dave Smith, trumpet.
