Just 17 years old, Sarah Killian writes songs about good times, bad boys, and anything else that happens to be on her mind. Based in New Jersey but a Nashville girl at heart, Sarah makes frequent trips to Music City, where she has performed at such iconic venues as the Bluebird Cafe, Commodore Grille, Douglas Corner Cafe, and Cafe Coco. Her pop country style showcases her natural gift for storytelling and her catchy melodies paired with insightful lyrics reflect technical skills and wisdom surprising for her age.
Sarah has been inspired by everyone from James Taylor to Taylor Swift, Carly Simon to Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles to Halsey. Interestingly enough, she cites the Rolling Stones as one of her earliest influences, “When I was little, my dad used to drive me around blasting the Stones, and I would sing along to Brown Sugar (“yeah, yeah, yeah, woo!”). He was a little surprised when his two-year-old daughter asked to listen to “the other woo woo song” (Miss You)!” At the age of six, classical music joined rock ‘n roll when Sarah started playing piano. Five years later, she took up the guitar. Her love of both instruments, as well as her passion for singing, has opened up many opportunities. Sarah has played piano at New York City's renowned Carnegie Hall, earned a soloist spot at Princeton's Westminster Choir College for both voice and piano, and has been the featured under-21 act at Asbury Park's famed Wonder Bar. She has also been recognized as "One to Watch" by the Nashville Songwriters Association and had songs considered for their Pitch to Publisher luncheon.
Energized by her trips to Nashville, Sarah is writing lots of new songs and is always on the lookout for performance opportunities both at home and in Music City. Check back often and join her mailing list to hear more about her musical journey!
