"Songbird and Hammergoddess. Two titles I love. Not my own. When I write songs they are a product of my life experiences. When I perform them I am vulnerable. When you listen to them, they are yours. The lyrics express the past, present and future. Times you might relate to. Times you might wish to relive or forget. I write these songs for me and I share them for you." - Sarah Dearlove

Picture this: a teenager dancing in a Birmingham kitchen to Wuthering Heights feeling empowered and liberated. Transformed. Out of the proverbial domestic scene and into celestial bliss. Sarah Dearlove’s SongStories take us on a journey through her mind, her highs and lows, love and loss and into a curiosity cabinet. A lover of historical oddities and their ancestry and the stories behind them.
Music has helped Sarah to be kind to herself. She has been composing music and writing songs since she was a child and her teaching career meant her love of music was focussed on others and she put everything into helping children to feel the power of music. After 13 years of educating children in music, she decided to spread her wings and start a new chapter. Even though this has been a huge leap (and a global pandemic with lockdown happened!) this has been the most positive and exhilarating time of her life. This songbird has wings. Sarah Dearlove’s SongStories have new feathers and she would like you to come fly with her.
