Born: October 19, 1970 Instrument: Vocal
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.
Sarah’s first professional recording experience came along at the age of sixteen while working as a window display designer for J.C. Penney’s. (Although Sarah never played much with dolls in her childhood, she found herself dressing perfectly painted mannequins.) Thanks to her supervisor, who was involved with one of the local studios and familiar with Sarah’s singing abilities, Sarah was recommended to the studio when the hired singer did not show up for her vocal part on a radio commercial. Within a half a heart beat, Sarah was at the studio, sang the required parts and five days later she was asked by one of the session players to join his band. After much deliberation on her parents’ part, Sarah stepped on stage; it was the genesis of her professional musical career.
Now after performing in 52 cities around the world and over 2,800 performances to her credit, (which she proudly thanks Las Vegas for that astonishing number) Sarah is truly at home on stage. Her sassy and playful attitude combined with her natural ease and sincere passion creates an emotionally charged and captivating experience with the audience. Sarah has toured with a variety of show bands including her own band throughout the United States.
