1. Hi Sarah! Can you tell us a little about you and why have you started to play music?
I started playing guitar when I was six and writing songs when I was nine. I was lucky because I grew up in New York, so music was all around me, and there were tons of opportunities for me to perform and meet other artists. I can't imagine life without music these days.
2. How has the place you live influenced you and your music?
Growing up in New York, I got to meet so many incredible musicians and see so many incredible performances. Every last song I heard and concert I saw inspired me to improve my own writing and performing.
3. What equipment do you use to produce your music?
Whenever I write a new song, I record a live take into Garageband using the microphone that's already installed in my computer. That's just about as complex as my equipment gets.
4. Who are your influences?
I grew up listening to Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and a lot of The Stones. I also listen to a lot of the more songwriter-y Top 40 (Ed Sheeran, Adele, etc.). Those are most of my music influences.
5. How do you think you differ from other artists?
I like to think I'm more of a blend of different styles than other artists are. There's definitely a lot of pop in my sound, but I think there's also some rock, some singer-songwriter-y acoustic, and sometimes even a hint of hip hop. I've definitely been trying to shake up my writing a little more these days, so hopefully that will make sense when you guys hear some of my newer stuff.
6. What advice could you give to emerging artists wanting to do something in a similar style?
Write as much and as often as humanly possible, and enjoy the process. I'm never happier than when I'm writing. I wish there were more hours in the day for it!
7. How did you find out about weloveyoursongs.com?
Actually, my mom stumbled on it while reading a tech blog and sent the link to me. She keeps me current.
8. Plans for the future?
I want to finish up the next three years of college, and while I do that, I want to write, record, and perform as much as possible. I also want to meet a lot of other musicians. Luckily, there's no dearth of them where I am now.
