Meet Savannah Sgro, a Berklee College of Music Student now chasing her dream in Nashville!
Savannah is a singer/songwriter who started her musical path as a very young girl playing piano by ear. She grew up in Vegas and came to Berklee to study, before packing up and moving full time to Music City. Among Sgro's biggest influences are Stoughton's own Lori McKenna, plus Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves. She describes her sound as "Folk-y country." Savannah brings a raw honesty to her beautifully seasoned vocals. There's an aching maturity delivered with a youthful innocence that is a silky dichotomy.
The Sound of Savannah
Take a listen to Savannah's original "Lesson (I'll Say)," written late one night with a couple of friends. It started with the bass line and took off from there. It's about going back to that someone even though you know you shouldn't. When they finished writing it, Savannah and her co-writers recorded the song in her bedroom closet!
