YAY MORE AMAZING WOMEN! This is one of those posts where I bang on again about how much I love the internet and social media. I can’t even remember how I found Sarah de Warren, I just know it was on Instagram or Twitter. I got a good vibe off her, listened to some of her music and thought she was pretty cool.
Since I’m the ‘polite pest’ kind of social media follower, she eventually noticed me and followed me back on Insta and Twitter, and we’d interact occasionally.
Then in May I moved to Manchester with no idea that she actually lived here, and on Saturday I finally saw her live at Oxjam and got to meet her. Oh life.
I am, as always, really pleased to share this interview with you and I love how thoughtful and intentional Sarah’s answers are, just like her music! You can follow Sarah’s journey here and here.
How long have you been making music for?
I have been writing for 9 years now, but I was playing piano and singing for much longer before then. Almost my whole life. At 13 I discovered that I could write songs and I was totally absorbed. It became my evolving project, for life.
Tell us about one memorable gig from the last year.
A festival in the Lakes called Kendal Calling! It was amazing. I played with my producer and we have actually just launched our new duo called XTALK. Festivals are my favourite shows.
What advice would you give to other young women thinking about making music?
