The bright lights of stardom are the prerogative of young girls everywhere, and Sarah de Warren was no exception, honing her skills on the streets of hometown Dorset to perform covers by the age of 13. However, it wasn't until she started writing and recording her own material a year later that her interest in the technical side of music production developed, inspiring her to study maths and physics as well as music- something she hopes to continue at university, with a degree in Audio Acoustics.
Now, quoting influences that range from Jeff Buckley and Beth Rowley to the XX, the result of de Warren’s ensuing three years of music production is an impressive Myspace back catalogue of haunting melodies overlaid with emotionally fraught and emotive lyrics that hint of an insight and intelligence that transcend her 18 years and have already garnered her some serious acclaim and accolade, winning her positions in Live and Unsigned 2012's grand finals at the 02 Arena, as well as recognition for her songwriting: UK Song writing Contest semifinalist two years running and the 'Best Original Song' award at the Live and Unsigned Area finals.
It's a promising start for the indie pop ingénue who seems poised to join the ranks of well established female singer songwriters who are currently reigning over the indie charts.
With her name locked in festival line ups over the summer, you will have easy access to Sarah de Warren over the coming months, but until then, you can find her on her Myspace and Facebook pages. www.twitter.com/sarahdewarren | http://SarahdeWarrenMusic.bandcamp.com | www.SARAHDEWARREN.com
