Sarah O'Dea grew up playing piano, trumpet, guitar and studied classical voice for 4 years. She began writing songs at the age of 15 and is shaped by many genres of influence (rock, folk, Motown), and she has developed her own form of Americana-folk in her music. She writes heart-felt, creative songs inspired by personal experience and whatever comes to mind.
Currently, she lives in Seattle and is writing and preparing to record her debut LP, due for 2019. She performs regularly in Seattle alongside Lucas Tayne.
Recorded and produced at Malamute Studios in Seattle, WA, she has released two EP's, "Under Painted Skies" in 2015 and "Brink of Love" in 2016 (they are listed online under Sarah Brunner).
Since 2013, Sarah has played professionally at hundreds of venues including bars, restaurants, coffee houses, art festivals, weddings and private events. Besides performing her original music, she enjoys putting an acoustic spin on songs from a variety of genres. She was based in Michigan for 4 years, currently plays regularly in Seattle, WA and has performed in U.S cities such as Chicago (IL), Hilton Head Island (SC) and Carrboro (NC), and European cities such as Prague (cz), Dublin, London and Brighton (UK).
