Country sweetheart, Sarah Wickett, was 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 songwriting as she grew up, while artists like Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, and Christina Aguilera helped shape her sound and feed her creativity.
At age 18, Sarah moved from Beaverton to Toronto to enroll in a Journalism program at Humber College. Being surrounded by creatives and immersed in a music city fuelled her determination to pursue her dream of making it in the music industry. Shortly after, Sarah began working on original music with various producers and released a self-titled EP, which launched her into the country music scene, earning her showcases at Canadian Music Week and the 2017 Canadian Country Music Awards. Sarah has been well received in the performance scene. She has opened for famous names ranging from Bobby Wills to Robyn Ottolini and performed for full-house crowds at The Opera House, Casino Rama, and fairs and festivals across Ontario. She has also made her way south of the border and has performed at multiple venues in Nashville.
In recent years, Sarah has done an impressive job at capturing the likes of country music fans worldwide, racking up 120 000 followers across all social media platforms and approximately 800 000 streams. Recently she released ‘Accent’ and ‘Momma’s Boy’, two very successful songs that take on a fresh and unique sound by captivatingly combining mainstream pop, country, and Desi music. The songs speak about cultural differences, family expectations and interfering mothers, in a way that many listeners find relatable. Sarah Wickett has found a way for music to transcend cultural boundaries while unifying two distinct musical genres.
Her compelling stories and vocal performances have gained Sarah notable recognition from radio stations across the nation and media outlets such as Global News, Kultur’d 640, and the Country Music Association of Ontario. Sarah has had continuous success on Tik Tok, racking up almost 12 million views, by promoting her music and catering to her south Asian listeners.
This year, Sarah has already released a pop-country love song titled “Routine,” which defines love as “when you know, you know” and speaks towards incorporating that love into your life, family, and routine. She has recently released a country-rock song titled “Good Friends”. Good Friends contains a dark element, comparing fake friends with the ones who always have your back. You can listen to it now on all streaming platforms and Sirius XM radio.
