Sarah Summer is an independent songwriter/folk artist who was born and raised in Summerville, South Carolina.
She spent the past few years traveling from East to West, living out of hotels, making music in juke joints & playing with fire before settling in the desert outside of Phoenix, Arizona.
While passing through California, she met and began collaborating with instrumentalist Sam Smetana. Before long, the two were recording an EP together via snail mail. Summer found herself recording songs in California, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and South Carolina. "I would spend the day locked in the bathroom, lights out, tracking with my guitar and a string of Christmas lights to set the mood," she says. "I'd load the files to a flash drive and drop it off at the post office with a note to Sam, and in a few weeks time, he'd return the favor. We kept at it until we came up with something we could both be proud of. "
Since the debut album was released in August 2017, the duo have been booking shows and crossing time zones to perform together up and down the West Coast.
