About Sara Bareilles
When Sara Bareilles’ soaring 2007 single “Love Song” appeared at the top of the charts, fans who’d seen the talented singer, songwriter and pianist performing at open mics around Los Angeles had one question: “What took so long?” Born in Eureka, California in 1979, Bareilles honed her vocal talents in her school’s choir and local theatre productions. After graduating from university, her demo recordings led to a deal with Epic, which released her debut album, Careful Confessions, in 2004. Her breakthrough came with 2007’s Little Voice, a platinum-selling album about love, loss and life as a young woman that garnered comparisons to Fiona Apple and Regina Spektor and, for the single “Love Song”, multiple Grammy nominations.
