Our guest today is Sarah Leete.
Sarah Leete is a singer songwriter Raised on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW.
Inspired by Cat Stevens, Patty Griffin and Neil Young, she started playing guitar in high school at age 13.
After winning the Moree Superstar competition in 2015, she won a scholarship to the CMAA Academy of Country Music in Tamworth and won a financial grant from Create NSW.
Sarah enlisted the help of Golden Guitar-winning songwriter Catherine Britt to produce her debut self-titled EP, released in 2017.
Her self booked four-week tour to support the EP helped Sarah to get supporting slots with The Viper Creek Band, Bill Chambers and Fanny Lumsden.
Locking herself away in a room during the 2020 pandemic, she emerged with a batch of fresh songs. The first of these songs, ‘Nothin’ Special’ in March 2021 and ‘One That Got Away’ in July 2021, were recorded in Brisbane with producer Michael Muchow (Catherine Britt, Melody Moko) at ‘The Moon Room’ between border closures.
Sarah just released her latest single and a new album is set to see the light of day later in 2022.
