New York singer-song writer Sarah Solovay is not your typical eighteen-year old. Yes, she’s a freshman in college, but for someone who has recently graduated from high school, she has quite the accomplishments. Here’s a gal who loves cookie dough, but can’t stand warm weather, whose mom is her dearest best friend in the entire world (and she wouldn’t have it any other way), throw in a guitar, piano and vocals and you have yourself a very talented young lady. Sarah’s fan base is predominantly teens and twenty something females, but if you enjoy pop, rock, acoustic and alternative beats, than this might be your new lady.
In 2008, Sarah’s “Gone” won the New York Songwriters Circle “Young Songwriters Award”, which later in October of 2010, Sarah and her song “Gone” were included on the list of entries to be nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award for a possible “Song of the Year” and “Best Female Pop Vocal Performance” categories. Awesome! Not too many freshman can say that one. Her song “Gone” was selected earlier that year for the The New Writers CD released by The Songwriters Hall of Fame. “Gone” was also featured in Children’s Hospital as well as on the NBC TV Show “Outlaw” that same year. In 2009, Sarah was also a finalist in the International Songwriter’s Competition. I told you this young lady had a lot of accomplishments, but that’s not it…
To name a few more…In 2010, Sarah was selected to open for the fabulous John Mayer and Train on his “Battle Studies Tour” in Pennsylvania. Sarah was also a featured artist on the TV Show, 90210 soundtrack, released in 2009. Her music has also been selected for other ABC, NBC, CBS and MTV shows. Sarah’s song “All She Could Be” was licensed for ABC’s “The Lying Game” in the August 22, 2011 episode. In July 2011, while balancing school work, Sarah was profiled by the New York Times for her rising profile as a musician. I can see how she earned that title!
This unsigned artist with self-released records is a must hear! Her “Superhuman” EP debuted this past August at #14 on the itunes singer-songwriter chart.
