As a child, Sarah was drawn to the creative arts. From the age of 6 she began writing poetry and studied dancing, singing and theater throughout grade school . While studying at University of Pittsburgh, at the age of  22, Sarah began writing songs and at 25 she dedicated her life to a career in music. At 28, she now has a catalogue of over 70 songs, and often writes them in one sitting, drawing from poems and phrases she collects in her phone, journals, and scrap pieces of paper.

In 2016, Sarah moved from Boston, MA to Salt Lake City, UT and quickly fell in love with it’s supportive and close-knit community. Here, her artistic development blossomed and her style began to be influenced by local artists and western sounds that inspired her.
