Sarah is a multi-award winning singer song writer, actor, philanthropist and activist


Sarah’s story of triumphing over her fears and rebuilding her life as an independent woman and artist first hit our screens in 2004 on Channel 4’s BAFTA  award winning “Cutting Edge” series “Picking Up The Pieces”, which became pick of the week in all media publications across the UK. Sarah lost most of her vision as a result of a Type 1 diabetic eating disorder which she had developed in her late teens. She saw it, however, as "gaining new vision" and found it an enlightening experience and went on to win multiple awards for her performance work and achievements. TV appearances include singing on GMTV's Lorraine and Scotland’s STV Live at Five as well as local news channels and the national chat show “Doctor Doctor”.


After playing several leading roles in stage performance, fronting five bands, and releasing two collaborative Electronica EPS, Sarah co-produced and co-wrote her debut album “Something I Couldn’t Say” with the triple platinum award-winning producer Duncan Cameron in 2015. It was remixed and released in 2017, and her first single “No More Tears” reached Valley FM’s Indie Chart at number 15. Her second single “If I Said” got record of the week on Wolfman Radio and subsequently the album “Something I Couldn’t Say” also got record of the week on Wolfman Radio. Her promotional single “Stranger To Me Now” reached number 5 in the Indie Radio Alliance.


Sarah took a short break from recording music to perform in several shows, one of which was a one-woman show tailored to Sarah’s rock music taste and performed in London, and one she wrote and performed herself, after which she went on to act in her first short film. Whilst recording her third EP with a management company in London Soho, Sarah was involved in an accident which resulted in a bad head injury severely affecting her health and ability to perform. During this period Sarah was still recording music and released her 5th single “Higher Than Before” in 2020 to try and raise the spirits of people and bring some hope. This was the song featured at the end of her documentary about rebuilding one’s life after devastation. Subsequently “Something I Couldn’t Say” was re-released digitally in January 2021 followed by the single “Reflections” in April 2021. During lockdown Sarah co-produced and co-wrote the single “Yesterdays” with Simon Bradshaw who recently had a song on Chart topping SHINee’s album Don’t call me.


Sarah is currently recording new material to release later this year. Other activities in her busy career include advocacy work for JDRF who made her an ambassador for their national campaigns, and being involved in a national Parliamentary Campaign with Sir Steve Redgrave for Diabetes UK in Westminster where Sarah gave a talk in Parliament about her own experience. The campaign was successful and resulted in eye screening equipment to prevent sight-loss being placed in all diabetic clinics in the UK. Sarah has also orchestrated a campaign in Holyrood Parliament with MSP Dennis Robertson and Jaqueline Allen from the charity DWED to raise awareness of the serious type 1 diabetic eating disorder EDMT1. Her song collaboration “The Road” was played in Parliament as part of the campaign and subsequently released. As well as having songs streamed on over 200 independent and FM radio stations internationally, Sarah has also written the theme tune “Have a Cuppa Tea” for RNIB Scotland podcast series “Seeing Our History”. Other acting work includes a cameo role in the TV series “Derek” by Ricky Gervais, and playing herself and helping to write an award-winning  on-line advert for “Dove”.


Sarah’s new single “Before The Sun Goes Down”, (Co writer on SHINee’s chart topping ‘Don’t Call Me’) was released digitally April 2022.
