Like most of her musical heroes, Sarahbeth Taite knew that she was going to be an artist at a young age. It all started back in Fort Collins, CO when she would climb up on the piano bench beside her Grandmother at the age of 5.
Her interest was so strong, her parents decided she should take lessons. Years later one of her piano teachers gave her a guitar to tinker around with over the weekend and Sarahbeth came back a multi-instrumentalist on Monday with a few songs already under her belt. Little did she know that in 2016 she would be sitting down to co-write with Mark D. Sanders on a pre-loved guitar she was drawn to at Corner Music in Nashville, TN. That same guitar belonged to the Hall of Famer complete with a note of encouragement to the next owner and a list of hit songs written on the guitar, including “I Hope You Dance”.
So how'd she get to Nashville? She begged her parents for a trip to Music City for her 14th birthday, so that she could attend an NSAI songwriter's workshop. Her parents, recognizing her talent and dedication, took her and that resulted in her very first publishing deal with Green Hills Music Group. Sarahbeth’s drive kicked in even harder as she enrolled in online high school to be able to make the journey back and forth to Nashville to write. Sarahbeth’s talent and charisma kept growing and she soon landed her second publishing deal with Hall of Fame Songwriter, Kye Fleming, and SESAC writer of the year, Catt Gravitt where she intensely began developing her artistry. It was clear she should make the move to Nashville, so she drove her blue Chevy Silverado from Colorado to Nashville at 17 to continue the pursuit of her dream. Sarahbeth signed with Sea Gayle Management soon after and things have been ramping up ever since.
Sarahbeth’s first single and first video “He Loves Me” landed on CMT in January of 2016. She was chosen by ASCAP for the Music City Live Tour in 2016. She has preformed on countless stages and radio shows including Sirius XM’s Songwriter Series. She has mentored musicians at The Southern Girls Rock Camp whose mission is to support positive self esteem for girls through music and has been featured on Shotgun Seat/Stage Right Secrets/Sounds Like Nashville/Draper James/etc.
Sarahbeth has always had a heart for children and giving back to kids is a part of her platform as an artist. Recently, she gave of her time to brighten patients' day at Seacrest Studios at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital by playing songs, signing autographs and having a Q&A with the kids.
She welcomes the opportunity to be a role model for young girls who face constant comparison on social media. One of the songs dearest to her heart is titled “Enough” which deals with this very subject and has already touched many young fan’s hearts.
Sarahbeth is joyfully working on her next EP which is due out early in 2018. This EP combines her traditional country roots with fresh production, which highlights her distinct, identifiable sound as a vocalist. Her music and charisma are easy to spot, but it is her inner beauty that the world will be blessed to share in.
