Powerful performance and an independent style characterize the music of Virginia’s own Sarah White & the Pearls.
Sarah’s music kills me; beautifully from the ground up, no plastic.
— Dave Matthews
Born and raised in the two Virginias, Sarah White grew up with a love for rock and roll radio, dusty LP records, and the country music her father played on guitar. Her strong roots rock and country music influences are grounded in punk instincts, inviting comparisons to a wide spectrum of artists from Hazel Dickens and Chan Marshall to Kathleen Edwards and Jeff Tweedy.
Performing as a solo artist and as a duo with guitarist Ted Pitney, Sarah has supported a variety of luminaries from Earl Scruggs and Justin Townes Earle to Merle Haggard and Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham).
