Singer/songwriter Sarah McQuaid was born in Madrid to a Spanish father and an American mother, was raised in Chicago and now lives in Cornwall, She was taught piano and guitar by her folksinging mother and remembers being inspired by meeting her distant cousin, well-known singer/songwriter/storyteller Gamble Rogers, at her grandmother’s house in Indiana. From the age of twelve she was embarking on tours of the US and Canada with the Chicago Children’s Choir, and at eighteen she went to France for a year to study philosophy at the University of Strasbourg. 

Recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ards International Guitar Festival in Northern Ireland, Sarah has drawn critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences: “I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever,” wrote The Huffington Post. 

With the release of her new album, Sarah has expanded her battery of instruments to include piano, electric guitar and drum, and it’s drawn critical rave reviews internationally: Dutch music magazine Heaven hailed it as “an early contender for folk album of 2018,”
the UK’s Roots said it was “a collection to savour” and the USA’s Pop Matters called it “a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.”
