Sarah grew up in Hobart, Tasmania, and took a keen interest in drums at the age of 15. She was self-taught through her teenage years and was heavily influenced by punk-rock bands like Blink 182, Sum 41, and The Offspring.
In 2014 Sarah made the move to Melbourne and began studying under the legend Dan Kerby at DK Drums Academy (Bliss n Eso, 28 Days, Behind Crimson Eyes), which has really taken her playing to the next level.
Whilst 2020 was a huge challenge for Sarah, she took the year by storm with the release of Analogue Hope’s highly anticipated debut self-titled EP. They had planned to back up the release with an EP Launch party and some interstate shows, which were sadly cancelled due to the pandemic.
Sarah didn’t let this slow her down. She prepared to launch her own streetwear label, Happy Pessimist Clothing Co, with the desire to support local musicians through a sponsorship program. This has already been incredibly successful, and some of Big Sound Percussion’s very own artists have jumped on board.
Sarah collaborated with other drummers and artists around the world, creating epic content including drum duets and interviews.
Here we are in 2021, and Sarah shows no sign of slowing down. Analogue Hope have been working hard in the studio getting ready to release some brand new music in the coming months. Stay tuned.
