Sarah Lightman hails from the East Coast. She grew up in Hightstown, NJ, and later attended college at Temple University to study musical theater. She has been submerged in performing arts her whole life. Much of her family are also musicians and artists. Her dad Aaron Lightman was signed with RCA Poppy Records, her cousin Toby Lightman is also a successful singer/songwriter, and her cousin Jonathan Russell (jazz violinist and movie composer) is featured playing violin on Sarah's newly released song "Fear."
Sarah just released her EP Friday the 13th of January 2017.
“My music is rooted from personal experiences to help inspire others to heal from day to day struggles. I see so much sadness, pain, and sickness running wild in the world today, especially with the recent shooting in Vegas and the death of Chester Bennington. I feel the need to take responsibility for my own pain in hopes to help others get back on their feet. Suffering is inevitable, but by making the choice to see the wounds we already have, we can start to move forward toward a healthier place.”
