Beth Sarah is a talented singer-songwriter whose music combines the nostalgia of 90s indie with her own unique, uplifting perspective on change and personal growth. Born and raised in the coastal town of Worthing, England, Beth began writing songs at the age of 14, using music as a way to process complex emotions and experiences.
After years of gigging locally, Beth released her first solo track, Rollerskates, in 2020, which quickly gained attention from local radio stations. She has since formed a full band and released her debut album, Let Her Go, in early 2023. The album is a journey of self-discovery, exploring the inner battles and ultimate freedom that comes with allowing oneself to change.
In addition to her music, Beth has a background in Early Years education and has worked in various settings while pursuing her passion for music. As a mother to an autistic child, she understands the challenges of balancing work, family, and personal aspirations, and is an advocate for pursuing one’s dreams no matter the circumstances.
With her unique sound and positive message, Beth Sarah is an artist to watch, and her music is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the ups and downs of personal growth and change.
