“When she grows up, Sarah Close aspires “to travel the whole world and make music and be happy”. At 17-years-old, she might well be on her way. Close has seventeen thousand subscribers on YouTube and her videos have been watched more than two million times.Her willingness to experiment makes Close stand out from many of her contemporaries (see her cover of Nicki Minaj’s ‘Va Va Voom’ below). Rather than clinging only to acoustic balladry, she sings what she wants, a promising quality in a market saturated with young female singers. She also seems to have a sense of humour whilst remaining endearingly unassuming. From the Isle of Wight, Close can play the piano, guitar, and ukelele. She’s still searching for a distinctive sound but her original songs, such as ‘Better Than You’ which can be streamed below, demonstrate plenty of potential.”
