"A UNIQUE SENSE OF EXPRESSION AND DELIVERY"
Life began in Germany for Sarah where she was born and raised. As a young girl she developed a passion for music, particularly singing. Initially a hobby, Sarah had singing lessons and sang regularly with various youth bands in Germany. Her notable achievements saw her singing to over a thousand young people at youth festivals when she was a mere 19 years old!
At the age of 20 England beckoned; in particular Chichester University where she studied her Bachelor of Arts in Music with Instrumental and Vocal Music Teaching, for which she received a degree with honours. After Sarah completed her degree she continued her musical education studying for a Master of Arts in Contemporary Music Performance at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. She was trained further by tutors such as Bill Bruford (Phil Collins), Mark DeLisser (Leader of ACM Gospel Choir) and Louise Clare Marshall (Jools Holland). Sarah is involved in various band projects, regularly gigs across the country with function bands such as 'Soul Collective', 'The Deloreans' and ACM Gospel Choir. Sarah enjoys performing live the most and has sung with artists such as Beverley Knight, Stacey Solomon, Maverick Sabre, Jake Isaac, Guvna B, Matt Redman, Lou Fellingham, Scouting for Girls, and Alexa Goddard.

"Sarah is a delightful blend of an outstanding, stunning and versatile voice, mixed with a cheerful, friendly and energetic personality. Working with her has always been fun as she consistently delivers professional vocals.” Simon Brading
"Sarah Benton is a mightily impressive vocalist with an incredible work ethic and passion for what she does. I have had the privilege of her singing with me in my band many times and she has been a shining asset to have on board throughout the whole process from her attention to detail in rehearsal through to her energy and commitment on stage. She's an amazing team player in any band situation but also a pioneering leader in her 'Step up and Sing' vocal school. Her approach to music is holistic, joyous and without any hint of an ego. We need more people like this in this industry." Katie Leone
