Sometimes, all you need is an acoustic guitar and a dream. Sarah Solovay's got both, and she happens to have a rather transcendent voice to boot. The 16-year-old New York City singer- songwriter strikes just the right note between organic catchy rock and vibrant pop with each and every song that she pens. Cuts like the hypnotic "Hearts Collide" and powerful "Superhuman" weave together unforgettable melodies and heartfelt, honest lyrics. That's precisely why Sarah's music has already reached massive audiences via hit shows such as 90210 and why she was chosen by fans to open on a stop of John Mayer's "Battle Studies Tour." However, it's all merely preface to the moment Sarah truly arrives, when her forthcoming debut album drops and captivates the entire world.
Even though she's been playing since she was six-years-old, Sarah's talents began to receive serious attention and industry affirmation in 2008. "Gone" won the 2008 New York Songwriters Circle "Young Songwriters Award" and won an Honorable Mention in The International Songwriters Competition. Sarah explains, "That was one of the first big things that happened to me. The Songwriters Circle organizes these shows in New York City where they feature four songwriters on stage. Everyone plays a song and talks about the songwriting process. Winning that award was an incredible milestone for me."
Sarah has also been showcased on Teen.com and TeenVogue.com, but she truly shines on stage. "There's something really perfect about the connection between the audience and the performer," she says. "You can do anything you want on stage with the songs." Sarah continues to dazzle audiences all over her native New York with more touring to come.
Ultimately, Sarah's just being honest with her music. "A lot of artists today will compromise so they can reach fame or achieve monetary success. For me, it's about being able to fully express myself. My passion and drive to work at it will ultimately set me apart because I never stop writing."
She continues, "When people listen to my songs, I want them to know that someone else has gone through what they're going through. I can't wait to give the world a full album to listen to. Music connects people, and it lets us know we're not alone." She's living the dream to the fullest and will no doubt connect with millions very soon.
