Sarah Browne is a singer-songwriter based out of Pleasantville, New York. From a young age, Sarah felt incredibly drawn to music. An almost entirely self-taught musician, she started teaching herself piano at the age of thirteen and picked up guitar shortly after. She discovered her love for songwriting at eighteen. After she had written her first song, she felt compelled to share her music with others.
She began attending open mics and eventually started playing her own shows at venues throughout New York City and Westchester, including The Delancey, Leftfield on Ludlow, 12 Grapes, the Pleasantville Farmers Market, the Ossining Village Fair and many more. Sarah's music has been featured on The Peak 107.1 FM and on WHUD 100.7 FM. Sarah performs both as a solo musician and with her band.
Sarah's debut album, entitled To You, was released in December 2017. One of her most notable assets is her voice, which is reminiscent of Natalie Merchant. What truly sets Sarah apart, however, is her songwriting. Her style is characterized by her ability to create tantalizing melodies that take on an integral part of each song. Her lyrics are poetic and honest in a straightforward, unassuming way. She views this album as a collage of songs and considers it to be merely the beginning of her music career.
Sarah plans on using music as a platform to spread awareness about Friedreich’s Ataxia, which is a rare, genetic disease that took the life of her cousin, Matthew Rupel, in August 2017. She decided to dedicate her album to him because he was an endless source of encouragement and support for Sarah from the time she started playing music.
Sarah hopes that through her music she can inspire others to pursue their own passions. She feels that music is the way that she can most positively impact the world.
