Sarah Kang

Sarah Kang is a NYC-based singer-songwriter, whose genre is a seamless blend of jazz, R&B, and pop paired with thoughtful lyricism and warm, cozy vocals. Born in South Korea and raised in LA, Chicago, and Dallas, she grew up playing the piano and the french horn but never imagined she'd ever become a professional musician. Being raised in an immigrant family, a creative career was never presented to her as a real possibility — only a pipe dream. However, after releasing her first collection of original songs called "Fair Weather," which she recorded in her closet, and with the encouragement of her family and friends in 2017, she quit her job as a music teacher and took the jump into full-time music. She released her debut EP called "One," funded by a Kickstarter campaign, in 2019 with collaborators Takahiro Izumikawa, Dan Song, and Andrew Kim. In 2020, she challenged herself to release a song every month, and that July, she released her most well-known song to date called "Summer Is for Falling in Love," which has over 13 million streams on Spotify. The song has also been featured in Nespresso, Uniqlo, and LG advertisements, as well as Korean dramas and TV shows. She released her second EP "maybe i'm better now" in 2021 with her producer Patrick Hizon, in which she explored her more soulful and R&B side. In 2022, she released her first full-length album "how i remember" and made it onto the cover of Spotify playlists "Retro Pop" and "Next Gen Singer-Songwriter." Her song "end credits" landed itself on Spotify's "New Music Friday" playlist.

Sarah often describes herself as someone who is perpetually nostalgic, sometimes preemptively nostalgic for moments that haven't even passed yet. This results in a timelessness in her songwriting, which evoke memories, tell intimate stories, and remind us of the finiteness of life, but also of hope for the future. She hopes that her music helps listeners to be fully present in the small moments that make life beautiful, like a sunset, or holding someone you love.
