Just 17 years old, Sarah Killian writes songs about good times, bad boys, and anything else that happens to be on her mind. Sarah’s pop country style showcases her natural gift for storytelling, while her catchy melodies paired with insightful lyrics reflect technical skills and wisdom surprising for her age. Originally from New Jersey, Sarah recently moved to Nashville to pursue a career as a singer songwriter while attending Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business.
Sarah loves all kinds of music and finds inspiration from legends such as James Taylor and Carly Simon to current artists like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles, and Halsey. Interestingly enough, Sarah 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!”). You can imagine his surprise 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, have resulted in some really special moments over the years. 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.
After frequent trips to Nashville during her high school years (16 to be exact!), Sarah is beyond excited to finally be living in Music City! Sarah is writing lots of new songs and is looking forward to performing at different venues around Nashville. Check back often and join her mailing list to hear more about her musical journey!
