Sarah Popejoy / Bio

Sarah pulls out her Gibson and her mischievous smile; her palm pounds the wood and rhythmic notes weave themselves throughout her sweet, driven vocals. At the end of her show, Sarah involves audience participation by writing impov songs using titles suggested by those in the audience. “I love drawing from the energy of the crowd to write a song.”, states the singer. “You don’t have time to edit your thoughts. You just poor out your heart right there in front of everyone. The audience is listening intensely because they don’t know what to expect, and I’m just feeding off them and their idea. The whole thing is a big rush.”
Known for her warm stage presence, Sarah Popejoy has performed at colleges and listening rooms throughout the Northeast including Boston's famous Club Passim and Pittsburgh's Club Cafe. Other performances include opening for Debbie Campbell at Summer’s fifth night for a record breaking crowd (estimated 10,000 or more) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Her debut album, Complete Exposure, received airplay throughout the Northeast and some Southeast AAA and College radio stations, and performed at Borders throughout the Midwest including Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. It’s hard to say which is more engaging about the singer, the entertainer or the artist. Her music carries a drive that is gutsy, heartfelt, and energetic all at the same time.
**Important Update** New Album "RAW ~ Real Action with Words" being released on CD Baby and itunes this month! Release date is September 20th, 2011.
