„Tone, durability, handcrafted, quality, feel, sustain & family are a few words that come to mind. Being with Paiste is my childhood dream and every record I’ve played on is the proof.“



Since 2012 Sarah has found herself as a prominent Nashville drummer backing such acts as Steven Tyler’s Loving Mary Band, Gretchen Wilson, Maggie Rose and Them Vibes. Her precocious ability to play a multitude of genres with effortless pocket and feel made her an easy choice for many producers in the studio as well. Her studio efforts include: Manolo Garcia’s Latin Grammy Award winning record, “Geometria Del Rayo”, Maggie Rose’s 13 piece band live record, “Change The Whole Thing” and Foreigners “I’d Give My life for Love” to name a few. Sarah has also had the privilege of being the featured house drummer on "Late Night w/ Seth Meyers and shared the stage with Steven Tyler and Sara Bareilles on The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, PBS, Late Show w/ Seth Meyers and The Late Show w/ Steven Colbert. Sarah is a proud endorsee of Paiste Cymbals, Ludwig Drums, Vic Firth Sticks, Humes and Berg Cases and Hercules stands.
