Sarah Donner

Sarah Donner is a rockstar catlady kind of girl. She works the stage with a rhythmic guitar style, a fresh melodic line, and a candid stage presence that is all Sarah Donner. Her third album Typing Is Dangerous is now available on CD Baby, iTunes, and eMusic. 'The Sleep You've Been Missing' is a healthy combo of indie rock sensibility and singer/songwriter intimacy with notes of electronic influences. Her debut album 'Reluctant Cat Lady' is a wholesome low-carb blend of punchy guitar and clever, sassy lyrics that take their inspiration from the gay men she dated, the feral cats she feeds, and the hardcore punk shows she has endured. Take out the cliche and throw in the Casio keyboard.

Sarah Donner was chosen as a regional finalist in the 2010 Mountain Stage New Song contest. In 2009, Sarah was a New Folk finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival. The songs 'Whalers and Sailors' and 'Knocks on a Door' were chosen from over 800 entries. Her ever-increasing influences include artists Fiona Apple, Ben Folds, Ani Difranco, Regina Spektor, Holly O'Reilly, the ocean, kittens, London, pink cars, and cheap wine. She is a graduate of Westminster Choir College. After stretching her legs with musical theatre, she picked up a guitar, denied her classical roots, and started rocking out (with fantastic breath support).

Her heart lives in New Jersey and Massachusetts, and she wishes Connecticut wasn't so big. Sarah Donner is also the host and founder of Indie Music Night, an acclaimed monthly series featuring premium live music held in Princeton, NJ.
