New Orleans native tells the stories of her life in song
From growing up in New Orleans with her grandmother’s piano and a place in her church’s choir, it was inevitable Sara Beth Go would find a place in the music scene. If that wasn’t going to guaranteed her a spot, her move to Nashville certainly would.
As far as I’m concerned, though, Go could have been raised by jackals in the Sahara. Her musical skill, her knack for storytelling, and her captivating stage presence could have launched her career from anywhere.
Like many singer-songwriters, Go draws from her real-life experiences for inspiration. What makes Go stand out isn’t just her experiences, but her ability to connect with audience members through her storytelling.
Go has had a wild ride of a life, from being battered by the Nashville music machine to getting engaged to getting unengaged to buying herself an I-got-unengaged guitar. She’ll have audiences laughing one moment and crying the next, inviting her listeners to connect with her and each other over shared experiences.
Since her start, Go has released three albums: her faith-based breakthrough Finding the Reason; her sophomore Tired of Singing Sad Songs, illustrating her growth as a songwriter and a person, and selling over 1,000 copies out of her VW trunk; and finally, in 2013, Wish It Had, the album that found Go experimenting with pop rock and writing more about the pendulum of falling in and out of love.
Gather ‘round, everyone, and Sara Beth Go will tell story after story at the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza this Saturday.
