Meet Sara Petite, a fiery Americana singer-songwriter from San Diego, CA, who has torn up stages for the past 15 years with her band. She has released seven albums, and her latest one is coming out on June 9, called The Empress on Forty Below Records, with label president Eric Corne as producer. Her last album Rare Bird, garnered reviews from Americana Highways to American Songwriter magazines praising her; “… she’s still writing and recording her songs from a personal perspective and finding common ground with her listeners all at the same time.”

Sara has played many stages and venues over the years playing with her band and solo as a headliner or a solo performer. Some of the artists she's opened for are Todd Snider, Lucinda Williams, Josh Turner, Lonestar, The Beat Farmers, John Eddie, Marty Stuart, Railroad Earth, and Rhett Miller. Venues played The Belly Up (San Diego), The Mint (L.A.), Hotel Congress (Tucson, AZ), The Basement, and AmericanaFest in Nashville, TN. A splash of festivals and concert series include ones from California to the U.K., Dogwood Festival in Knoxville, Sycamore Fest - Bloomington, Indiana to Maverick Festival (UK), and the Garden Festival (UK) and various ones in her hometown of San Diego, CA.
