With upbeat, radio-ready tunes and a voice at home in country cadence, Sarah Beth is a locallygrown artist who is definitely going places. In fact, she’s already made the pilgrimage to Nashville to try her luck.
Sarah Beth’s family came to the Lehigh Valley during her high school years, and it was in Nazareth that her passion for country music took flight. Raised on the Dixie Chicks, Rascal Flatts and Alison Krauss, Sarah Beth spent her childhood eschewing cartoons for the Country Music Channel.
She took her songwriting seriously from a young age, cutting her teeth entertaining at farmers’ markets and playing at open mics. As high school wrapped up, she filmed a video, wrote more songs than ever and approached the Lehigh Valley and Nazareth Chambers of Commerce to get gigs opening for local headlining acts. “The Lehigh Valley became a part of my life and was incredibly influential with its lively music scene,” says Sarah Beth. Thus emboldened, she ventured to Nashville last year, where she has played at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe where Faith Hill and Taylor Swift were discovered.
“Performing is this huge adrenaline rush mixed with a million emotions. It’s just a blast!” Sarah Beth says. Pouring her heart into her lyrics and melodies, she loves a performance that leaves her audience feeling they’ve experienced something rather than just heard something.
Her music is available for your ears’ delight on SoundCloud, and this spring she’ll be releasing her first country-pop EP. “Writing music is my therapy,” Sarah Beth says. “I feel this comfort in pouring everything into a song and not worrying about keeping anything inside.”
