Sarah Christine

Sarah Christine is a visionary vocalist and soulful siren that delivers uplifting messages of empowerment, positivity and connection. Drawing inspiration from the joys and challenges of life, the beauty and healing energy of nature, and the desire to promote awareness and respect for the earth, she is a songwriter with a vision. Having called Vashon Island home for the past 15 years Sarah Christine thrives in the peace and tranquility of the Pacific Northwest. In addition to teaching voice lessons to groups and individuals, she also works as a labor support doula, and has welcomed over 50 babies into the world with song. Balancing a career in music with family life offers her constant lessons in surrender, self reflection and growth which she then pours into her art.

This mother of three began her journey as a back up singer for several touring Reggae acts such as Prezident Brown, Pure Water, The Crucialites, Big Island Groove and Adrian Xavier. Sarah Christine has been active in the Seattle music scene for well over ten years. Doors began to open which lead her to studio collaborations with Jamaican artists Anthony B and Lutan Fyah, along with local acts Publish The Quest, Indigitize and Essential I. Gaining valuable experience and skills in a supporting role would light the fire and deepen her hunger to swap that position for one of lead vocalist. She taught herself guitar and piano and began writing the music that would allow her to express her own voice in her own way. Sarah Christine fell in love with Reggae music at the age of 18, captivated by the hypnotic rhythms, intricate vocal harmonies and socially conscious lyrics. She incorporates these same qualities along with strong flavors of Soul, Hip Hop, and Jazz into her original compositions, creating a unique and passionate musical experience.

Setting the wheels in motion she started performing her original material frequently as a solo artist in small clubs around town. Slowly building a network of local musicians that would eventually become contributors to her studio sessions and live shows.
Sarah Christine has shared her music at Northwest Reggae Festival OR, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival CA, Conscious Culture Festival WA, Northwest Folklife, Bumbershoot and Seattle Hempfest as well as local venues like The Triple Door, Nectar Lounge and Wild Buffalo.

Paired with the singers rich honey voice and thought provoking lyrics, artists such as Clinton Fearon, Jacob Bain, Jeff Demelle, Davee C Carpenter, Jason Staczek, and Brian Stingshark infuse the record with a fresh intoxicating sound.
