Sarah started singing from a very young age and was highly influenced growing up by Artists like Christy Moore, Mary Black, Jimmy McCarthy, Annie Lennox, the Eagles, Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac, to name but a few.
Sarah realized from very early on in her life that Music was all she ever wanted to do. In school she was in the Choir, attended Auditions and would "day dream" in class contemplating her entrance into the world of Music.
She attended Music College in 2003 and here Sarah got a real glimpse into the Life of hard-working Musicians.
She learned the guitar and Piano and fronted many bands. She played in Venues around Cork, Waterford, Limerick and Kerry as the Lead singer in a Funk Band. Admitting it was extremely fun and a great way to socialize and meet new people, Sarah's Passions lay mainly tied to her original compositions and she left the Funk Band and Music Entirely to concentrate soley on song writing.
Sarah took almost 7 years out from Music to learn new skills and gather her musical thoughts. In this time she worked on and wrote a catalogue of songs while all the while remaining focused on her own musical return.
