Biography

Folkish Singer/songwriter with a Sonic art degree tucked in her back pocket Sarah Wiig is an interesting musical identity.

A musical journey beginning similar to many, in the angst of adolescence. The Rockquest confirmed her vocal talent with a best vocalist award at the Napier 2001 final. Her path soon took shape, receiving the Jerry Wise Young
Performers Scholarship from RIANZ secured a move to the Nelson School of Music in 2003 and a new Recording grant form NZ on air took her to the
studio.

Uncertain Girl is as the title suggests an album of youthful musical expression leaving the listener engaged.

After completing the Performance certificate course in Nelson, a thirst for musical knowledge remained unsatisfied so the decision to study sonic art was
made.

Embodied Expressions is an album which has captured learnings from the sonic art world and maturing songs with a darker feel.

Sarah is currently writing and recording her third album, inquisitive sonic ideas combined with many hours on the stage and an acquired musical knowledge. We wait for something great!
