Born in Brisbane, Australia, she studied classical and jazz voice at James Cook University and the Queensland Conservatorium, discovering early that jazz was the genre for her.
"My voice just seemed to feel more at home singing jazz than anything else. It just feels natural and really resonates with me. I don't think I had much control over that!"
Since the EP's release, Sarah has been performing regularly, most notably with a tour of Japan in 2010, singing with a jazz band in Kobe, Osaka and Kyoto. On home soil in Australia, she has performed at the Brisbane Powerhouse, the Noosa Jazz Festival, the Valley Jazz Festival, Warwick Jumpers and Jazz and the Gold Coast Arts Centre and now at Noosa Blue Resort.
In 2011 she held a residency at Brisbane's iconic Cloudland lounge bar, and performed regularly at the Brisbane Jazz Club. She also was a finalist in the 612 ABC Brisbane - Valley Jazz Festival Vocal Awards.
