Interview: Sarah Close
Share This Article:
From struggling undergrad to Youtube mogul and up-and-coming pop sensation, Sarah Close has passed every checkpoint in record time and is flying towards the finish line. Thanks to the internet, making your dreams a reality can all begin with just a single upload, and for Sarah, it all started way back in 2010 with a cover video of Katy Perry's pop nostalgia hit 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)'. Since then, Sarah's channel subscribers skyrocketed, and in March 2017, she was able to release her debut single 'Call Me Out', and a debut album Caught Up, the following month. Growing up on the small island of the Isle Of Wight, Sarah has admitted that the size of her hometown limited her options creatively; "I think feeling so isolated was one of the reasons I got into music, I didn't have other kids in my village to hang with so I had to find things to keep me busy! I don't think my home area has an obvious influence on my songs and writing, but I do have a couple songs that explore growing up and feeling like a bit of an outsider because of a different childhood to other people".
