Catch Of The Week: Sarah Conway
Meet Sarah Conway from Walpole
Don’t be fooled by the girl next door exterior… the unaffected sweet, voice of Sarah Conway is a force. This singer/songwriter has something to say, and a voice that makes you want to listen. Growing up in a musical home, Conway has just started performing live in public. She’s a college student raised on Dylan and Sheeran. Considering she has limited experience on a stage, it is quite an accomplishment that Sarah made it to the 2nd round of auditions for NBC’s The Voice.
Remember this voice, and this name… because I have a feeling we will be hearing much more from this impressive young talent, Sarah Conway.
