ARTIST: Sarah Miles

SONG: Hear Me Out

BIRTHDATE: November 21, 1988

HOMETOWN: Princeton, NJ


AMBITIONS: To stop worrying about how my music is received and just enjoy the moment of creating and performing – what I hope – is great music!

TURN-OFFS: In general?  Know-it-alls. Definitely. They drive me nuts!

TURN-ONS: A great sense of humor!  (Am I on a dating website?)

DREAM GIG: Opening for Sara Bareilles! A serious dream come true.

You’ve got to get up every morning with a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You’re gonna find, yes, you will
That you’re beautiful as you feel
-Carole King, “Beautiful”

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: I have to say my mom.  I know, it sounds bad, but I love her to the moon and back!  She’s crazy in the most wonderful ways.  She gets things done like it’s nobody’s business and I seriously admire that.  I can count on her for anything and she will always have my back no matter what.  

SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Your Smiling Face” by James Taylor

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Sara Bareilles (my inspiration), Andy Cohen (cause he is my favorite person ever), Carrie Underwood (so we can sing at the table together), Taye Diggs (he can sing, dance, act, and make me laugh?  Yup, he’s invited), and Kelly Ripa (I just love that lady).

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: I had the opportunity to play at a really cool music festival in Philly a couple of years ago, and I found out that Delta Rae was also going to perform.  It was just before they blew up as a band.  They sang for a super intimate crowd and performed on a tiny stage.  They even went into the audience and did an unplugged version of one of their songs.  It was amazing! 

I WROTE THIS SONG: I wrote “Hear Me Out” during a time of uncertainty.  I wasn’t sure if I could continue with my music if there was no one listening to what I was putting out there.  It can be extremely frustrating.  But I took that emotion and put it into a song.  It brought me back and made me realize how important it was for me to keep pushing myself to reach for my dreams!
