Born into a musical family, Sarah Perrotta has been singing and composing music since early childhood. "My grandfather taught me my first piano lessons when I was about four years old. He taught all eight of his children how to play piano, guitar and sing in harmony. My mother and her three sisters 'The Power Sisters' toured the northwest singing folk music and my father built and played guitars, banjos and ukuleles from sourced wood on our farm. Music was a big part of how our family interacted with each other." Growing up Perrotta studied classical piano, was in several bands in high school and toured European cathedrals and concert halls with a choir at age fifteen. She went on to earn a degree in Jazz Studies from The State University of New York at New Paltz. She released her debut album Drink the Sky with her acclaimed indie band Outloud Dreamer (a duo with bassist/producer Carl Adami) when she was nineteen. Drink the Sky received rave reviews including Best Modern Rock Album of the year from WKZE 98.1FM radio, was endorsed by industry giants Sennheiser and had syncs for several documentaries and film soundtracks including rock climbing documentaries (Dosage Volume 1, Frustration Equals Motivation) and Changing Identities, a story of traumatic injury and art narrated by actress Meryl Streep.
