London Rocker is Taking the World by Storm

Most likely you’ve seen Sarah Smith before. With a voice that is often compared to Bonnie Raitt, Melissa  Etheridge,  or Janis Joplin, Sarah Smith makes you want to rock out and at the same time recharges your heart  and soul.

As the former lead singer for Canadian rock band The Joys, Sarah has earned international stardom, performed with the likes of Bif Naked, The Trews, Sam Roberts and Bedouin Soundclash. The Joys catapulted themselves all over the map and rode the radio waves across North America.

Now Sarah Smith has gone solo and is traveling the Globe. Proving that her powerhouse vocal talent needs no accompaniment with her debut album Stronger Now, Sarah is killing it on her own!

Stronger Now, her debut solo CD, was produced by Grammy and Juno winning Producer, Kevin Doyle (Alannah Myles, Anne Murray).

In 2014, Sarah completed her CD, The Journey, produced in Germany by world-class producer, Pat Anthony (Usher) and is excited to show the world her new sound…Already, music from this CD has been featured on CBC’s “Cracked” and in a movie “Anatomy of a Love Seen”, directed by L.A based Director, Marina Rice Bader

Sarah says her songs reflect the lives around her and she hopes her shows bring people together, as an extended family. “I want to get to know as many people as I can, and what they’re going through in their lives. I try to listen, and I learn from everyone I come across. It’s kind of like Buddha, or God, or Jesus is in everyone you meet. So I try to listen with an open heart.”
