Sara Petite in concert


Raised where wild huckleberries grow, Sara originally hails from

Sumner, Washington – a tulip-farming town southeast of Seattle. She grew

up riding in her Dad’s seaplane and on the back of his motorcycle. Her

mother raised a trio of women and a son, and gave each of them a strong

backbone and sense of self.

Sara’s unique musical performances are fronting a new genre of

Alternative Country. Inspired songs that revive fond memories of home

and travels are enhanced with a rock and roll state of mind.


her highly anticipated third CD, “Doghouse Rose,” on her own Sweet P

Records, Sara Petite builds on a quality reputation that has already led

the San Diego-based artist to release two independent CDs (“Tiger

Mountain” and “Lead the Parade) to international acclaim and, with

“Doghouse Rose,” to come out of the box as #3 most added on’s chart, #9 on the Roots Rock Report and debut at #33 on the Top Forty Americana Album Chart.

All this attention from Americana Radio is helping this young and very

hard-working artist continue as she has for years to build connections

along with a reputation for quality and memorable melodies. She is on a

constant Radio Promotion Tour with Live On Air Performances, some with a

live in studio audiences that will take her music to fans across the

country during 2010.

International audiences took notice early

when her song “Coming Home” was featured on the compilation CD

“Country,” from Universal Music in France, featuring her alongside

artists like Tim McGraw, Reba McIntyre, Merle Haggard and Dolly Parton.

“Coming Home” also appears on Shut Eye Records’ compilation CD, “The

United States of Americana.”

Her songwriting has earned her

many accolades with a multitude of West Coast shows and European tours.

She has been honored in the West Coast Songwriter’s Competition; Great

American Songwriter’s Competition; the International Songwriting

Competition; Great Waters Folk Festival Song Contest; San Diego Music

Awards and she earned the Grand Prize in the 2006 Portland Songwriting


Her touring schedule has found Sara opening for such

major headliners as Todd Snider, Josh Turner, Ralph Stanley, Shooter

Jennings, Dave Alvin, Steve Poltz, Lance Miller, Richie McDonald, Trent Thomlinson and Bert Jansch.

Her music has been identified as “progressive country,” but it’s more

than that. These classic story songs revive fond memories of history,

home and travels.

With “Doghouse Rose,” Sara follows the

musical path she began laying down on “Tiger Mountain” and “Lead the

Parade” though this time it is tempered with a taste of the more rocking

but still roots-based music of artists such as Steve Earle.
