THE NEW SINGLE
Country sweetheart, Sarah Wickett, has been immersed in music since she was born. Raised in Beaverton, Ontario, her time spent, hunting, fishing and watching sunsets on the water was intertwined with a distinctly musical upbringing, surrounded by a family who shared her passion. Her small-town roots inspired her song writing as she was growing up, while artists like Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera helped to shape her sound and feed her creativity.
Now aged twenty-five, Sarah has opened for famous names ranging from Bobby Wills to Wes Mack, and performed for full-house crowds at The Opera House, Casino Rama and at fairs and festivals all across Ontario, including the Smoke & Spurs Festival and Kempenfest. Sarah has also been a featured artist at Canadian Music Week and was showcased at the 2017 & 2020 Canadian Country Music Awards. For an up and coming artist, Sarah has done an impressive job at capturing the likes of country music fans all over the world with over 100,000 fans across all social media platforms.
She recently released the first three singles off of the EP, Did It For Me, Friday Night In and What We Do. The compelling stories and vocal performances have garnered Sarah notable recognition, earning her televised performances on Global Tv and the Diamonds in the Rough Showcase as well as interviews with Rudy Blair Entertainment, VENTS magazine and Nashville's Counter Culture On Air to name a few. She was also named the CMAO's July artist of the month.
Reaching new heights is nothing new for Sarah. She's always been inspired to learn about other cultures and educate herself on different backgrounds. Having the experience of dating her Punjabi boyfriend and learning the language has made her fall in love with Indian culture. This fall, for the first time, Sarah recorded with a Punjabi artist. "Accent", the title of her first English / Punjabi country mashup, has "the potential to launch her into global stardom". With this song Sarah hopes to promote inclusivity, equality and introduce a fresh, new flavour to country music.
The single "Accent" is now available on all online streaming platforms. Her sophomore EP is set to release in January 2021.
