After spending seven years with her band Sarah & The Tall Boys, Sarah Potenza relocated to Nashville Tennessee with not much more than her husband and her monster vocals. Coupled with her honest reflective songwriting she quickly garnered the attention of the city’s thriving music scene and she became a staple at the world-renowned Bluebird Café and the globally broadcast Music City Roots program.
One of her performances on Music City Roots resulted in a phone call from the NBC television show, “The Voice”. Potenza took the challenge in stride and managed to land a four-chair turn and out of 50,000 contestants, she made it to the top twenty!
Her passion for performing and undeniable voice resonated with America and made her a fan favorite across the country. Nashville welcomed her home with pride and celebrated her authentic, heartfelt songwriting with a sold-out show at the Bluebird Cafe and her debut on the Grand Ole Opry.
Sarah’s last release ‘Monster’ garnered praise from Rolling Stone Magazine, NPR, American Song Writer, No Depression, Elmore, Bust, Garden and Gun and more.
In 2016 Potenza was named as one of the 10 new artists you need to know by Rolling stone, “Potenza is to the blues what Adele is to pop: a colossal-voiced singer who merges her old-school influences with a modernistic sound.“
Along with her husband, guitar player, Ian Crossman, Sarah spent the last two years traveling around the country performing for her fans. The couple returns to the studio this fall to record her second full-length album, Road to Rome.
