Rock Ridge Music – Sarah Miles grew up in Princeton, New Jersey and has the distinction of being the youngest child ever to be admitted to NJ’s prestigious Westminster Conservatory Children’s Choir. As a member of various a cappella groups, she toured Sweden, Newfoundland, and Toronto, and performed at The White House and on the Today Show. After studying at University of Vermont, she moved to New York to pursue music fulltime. As a solo artist, her music has been featured on The Voice, and she’s toured with acclaimed singer-songwriters such as Teddy Geiger, Tony Lucca, Ingram Hill, Matt Duke, Jesse Ruben, and Pat McGee. Previously, she issued 3 EPs as Sarah Jane Wilson. For One, she co-wrote with songwriters Matt Duke, Steve Mandile (Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers, Cliff Richard, Ronnie Dunn), Brian Cassagnol (Mieka Pauley), and Ingram Hill. Recently, Sarah was selected to contribute to WordKraft’s Hand-Krafted CD sampler. Currently, she calls Austin, Texas her home.
Sarah has garnered comparisons to a broad array of artists such as Mariah Carey, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Diane Birch, and Carrie Underwood. She has gorgeously flowing dynamics as a singer, capable of euphoric skyward melodies and intimately fragile phrasing. Her songwriting is empowering, authentic, and stylistically touches upon folk, pop, and country. It’s an infectious blend of accessible songcraft and bold emotional candor.
On July 16, 2013, singer-songwriter Sarah Miles releases her debut full length, One (Rock Ridge Music), a sweetly sincere collection of finely crafted folk-pop inspired by the simple but bold decision to follow her heart.
It’s been a 3-year journey,” Sarah says. “I went through love, heartbreak, moved to New York City, went on the road, and explored collaborating with other songwriters. I’ve grown so much as a person and an artist. This is the opening ceremony for me-these are the most confident songs I’ve written.”
