She considers her singing voice one of God’s many blessings and cherishes the opportunity, with gratitude, to share the joy and the solace that music brings to others.
Sarah first sang publicly at the age of seven and since continued moving forward with her passion for singing and music. She majored in music at Hope College in Holland, MI.and Mastered in Early Childhood Education at Saginaw Valley State University to which she has used her college degrees to share the joy of music making with a career in Elementary Music in the Essexville-Hampton Public School District.
Sarah has sang in various local groups including Biss, Folkit, The Pedley Project, The John Reece Project, Sarah and the Groove, The Sugarbeats and various worship bands in churches in both Holland and the Saginaw/Bay area. Sarah has also enjoyed her many different roles in music theater productions and especially enjoyed her role as “Velma Kelly” in the Bay City Players performance of the musical Chicago.
Sarah treasures acoustic music and the work of singer/songwriters and felt inspired to write her own music and songs. Sarah is excited to be releasing her first EP titled “Be Still” that included five of Sarah’s original songs. The EP was recorded at Reed Recording Company in Bay City, MI. Sarah’s vocal stylings have been inspired by and compared to artists such as Gillian Welch and May Erlewine. Her songwriting stylings vary from thoughtful, tender, silly, and spirit filled.
