SARA PETITE (Country from San Diego)
Sara Petite: a little bit country and a little bit rock'n'roll, loved by grandmas, bikers, children and hipster.

Sara Petite is a gifted singer-songwriter who possesses the unique ability to reach the hearts and souls of fans young and old. She has the rare gift to craft songs that appeal equally, but are interpreted differently by fans of diverse perspectives. This comes through in her live performances as well. A true original, Sara's music does not conveniently fit into any one musical genre or sub-category, but rather traces her influences in country, bluegrass, rock and folk, and emerges into a sound completely her own. As welcome in senior citizen centers as she is in biker bars, nightclub venues and festivals, Sara is as American as apple pie and Harley Davidson. She is gritty, she is wild, she is tender with a soul of a child.

Transplanted to San Diego from a tulip farming town in Washington – and influenced by artists as diverse as Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and June Carter to Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp -- Petite has toured all over the U.S. and Europe.

Rocking out with her band, Sara Petite and the Sugar Daddies, she also has a rootsy 3-piece Classic Country, swampy sounding ensemble, Sara Petite and the Sweet Pea Possums. Sara also tours as a solo artist and has opened for many greats such as Josh Turner, Marty Stuart, Lonestar, Todd Snider, Dave Alvin, Ol 97s, John Eddie, Richie McDonald, Trent Tomlinson, Ralph Stanley, Steve Poltz and more…

Her accolades include:

Winner, 3 times, San Diego’s Best Country/Americana Band

Grand Prize Winner of Portland’s Songwriting Contest

San Diego Songwriting Contest Winner

International Songwriting Finalist

In 2012, Petite won second place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest.

Sara has four CDs; her most recent is Circus Comes to Town. Previous releases are Doghouse Rose, Lead the Parade and Tiger Mountain. The Road Less Traveled and Live at Pappy & Harriets will be released early 2016.
