Feeling a bit camera shy


Sara Azriel is a vocalist, pianist, and songwriter of pure emotional charge. Luscious, contemplative, sensual, sometimes sassy, and utterly honest, her songs are rich with years of loving and longing. From full-body shivers to tears to a sort of friskiness, in the end the most common experience shared by her audiences is one of hope. Sara is often compared to artists such as Peter Gabriel, Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, and Jeff Buckley. With a pop sensibility and a devotion to exploring musical forms and inventions, Sara Azriel is a true artist continually searching and expanding her musical vision.

Sara was born into a large family of musicians and raised on the pristine beaches of Muskegon, Michigan. She began singing and playing the piano as an infant. In her pre-collegiate years she was selected to perform at Walt Disney World and began to play professionally across Western Michigan. The acclaim she received led to her accepting a scholarship from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where, in 2001, she received her Bachelor of Arts in Professional Music.

During her tenure at Berklee, Sara performed at many well-known Boston-area venues under her own name and with Boston reggae-greats, The Joint Chiefs. Such venues included The House of Blues, The Middle East, The Lizard Lounge, and the Milky Way. During her summers, she has performed at several music festivals including the Berkshire Mountain Music Festival (Great Barrington, MA) the Creekside Jamboree (Forksville, PA), and Muskegon Summer Celebration alongside such artists as Aretha Franklin, The Slip, Santana, Soulive, and The Roots. In July of 1998, Sara had the honor of opening for The Wallflowers, led by Jakob Dylan.

Recently relocated to Los Angeles, California, Sara is hard at work on her debut album.

She is a dynamic, ambitious person and musician—and to her, the two are related: "Music is what drives me and moves me...there’s never been a choice for me. I’ve always known this is what I have to do." Sara Azriel
