Sara Petite makes her home in San Diego
and has grown quite a following, not just locally but worldwide. With
the release of her new CD Doghouse Rose, she hopes to expand on the
notoriety she earned with her first two independent CDs Tiger Mountain
and Lead the Parade.
Sara Petite's website bio states that she learned to sing country music
in her hometown of Summer, Washington by listening to Dolly Parton and
Loretta Lynn. Singing along with her sister, they would perform for
family and friends, mimicking the vocal inflections of their idols,
Parton and Lynn, and it's evident in her style.
But it's not just her voice, or her award-winning songwriting, or her
band. It's the whole package. And on top of that, you can just tell how
much fun she is having performing from the moment she hits the stage
(Crazy) to the final note of the final song (Promiseland). Her smile is
infectious. Just looking around, everyone in the crowd is doing
something. Some dancing, some nodding their heads with the music, some
singing along, but everyone is smiling. She has that effect.
Every song tells a story, and she shares many of them in between songs.
Like the bluegrass ditty Little House, which she tells the inspiration
she drew from her visit to Paris, and the small accommodations she
shared while there. Bootleggers tells of running moonshine with her
sister on Tiger Mountain, which is not only the title of her first CD,
but also the emotional home of her family in Washington state.
It won't be long before Sara Petite is the headliner, and another
up-and-coming artist will be able to say "Remember when we opened for
