Sarah Peacock

Sarah PeacockOriginally from Lawrenceville, GA, Sarah Peacock was raised in a musical family. "It's in the genes, I guess! I have two sisters who are both musical. My middle sister is a professional opera singer in D.C., and my youngest sister is an accomplished pianist. We grew up taking piano lessons, singing in church and at school, and performing in musicals. I picked up guitar at age 11 and wrote my first song. I guess the rest is history."

Peacock's love for music eventually took her to Nashville where she studied music at Belmont University. "It was Belmont that really gave me the tools and confidence I needed to properly hone my craft as a songwriter and also as a vocalist. It gave me some amazing performance opportunities. I was writing new songs every day, obsessed with getting better. Belmont made me the musician I am today."

Peacock was first introduced to the road in 2005. "I had no idea what I was doing. But, I thought I knew everything. I was green and ready to rock. I was living in Nashville at the time, waiting tables and teaching private music lessons part time. I'd leave Nashville Thursday and come back Sunday, testing out brand new songs in every coffee house within a 200 mile radius of Nashville. Sometimes I'd make $30 a night, which covered gas... but never enough for a hotel. So, I saw plenty of sunrises in my car during those days."

The perfect marriage of Ann Wilson and Sheryl Crow, Sarah Peacock is a country-rock powerhouse! Peacock delivers intensity and passion while her memorable melodies soar over heartfelt lyrics. And any die hard Peacock fan will tell you she is just as infectious off the stage as she is on it. Sarah's song "Hurricane" won best song in the 2014 American Songwriting Awards. Her song, "Beautiful" was a winner in the 2014 Unsigned Only Competition. Sarah was also named The Listening Room Network's Artist Of The Year. Her most notable performance was the CBS Morning Show in New York City performing "Hurricane," a tribute song to Hurricane Sandy victims.
