FriYAY: Sarah Donner
August 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sarah Donner is an alt-pop singer/songwriter who has embraced her inner cat lady. Her songs teeter back and forth between playful, nerdcore, and ballads, all tied together with bright melodies and driving, energetic instrumentals. Sarah Donner’s music has been featured on Conan O’Brien’s blog, NPR, Buzzfeed, i09, Showtime, and CBS. Sarah’s collaboration with internet cartoonist and game creator The Oatmeal catapulted Sarah into weblebrity status with over four million views on YouTube alone.
Her most recent record is She Makes Waves, created with support from the New Bedford Whaling Historical National Park. She has also created The Beauty Below, a puppet-based musical about North Atlantic right whales, with fellow South Coast songwriter Hooly J. Chan. When she isn’t touring, Sarah teaches privately, paints portraits, and fosters kittens through her new non-profit, Moby Kit Rescue.
