_________________________________________________________________________________

Born and raised in the two Virginias, Sarah White is a tremendous songwriter who might resemble some kind of Hazel Dickens/Patti Smith/Cat Power love child. She's released records on Jagjaguwar and Antenna Farm and won Best Song at the 2007 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest. Her catalog offers an eclectic blend of driving folk-rock, sorrowful country ballads and experimental, personal narrative songs -- the trifecta that defines her lengthening body of work. 

High Flyer, a long anticipated full-length album, is set for release in August 2017. Recorded in Richmond at Montrose Studio, the album features 11 of White’s best songs tracked with a bevy of seasoned players including Daniel Clarke (keyboards, piano), Charles Arthur (guitars), and Stewart Myers (bass) who also produced the album. Other special guests include Dave Matthews (who sings with White on ‘Sweetheart’); Carter Gravatt of Carbon Leaf; Nashville up-and-comer Carl Anderson; and Austin and Michael York from Sleepwalkers.  

These days Sarah performs solo or with her band the Pearls. She has opened for Merle Haggard, Justin Townes Earle, Earl Scruggs, Will Oldham, Dave Matthews Band Caravan and was named 2013 Best Songwriter in her hometown of Charlottesville, the town invented by Thomas Jefferson. Most recently White took home the winning prize at the 2015 Ashland Coffee & Tea Songwriter Shootout.
