Sara Barta has just released her Christmas single, Hurting You. This moving ballad details the aftermath of a painful breakup and is based on her own experiences. The video features Hampstead Heath, were Sara spent much of her youth.
Raised in London Sara’s musical journey began when she started playing the piano at the age of six. She was singing by age seven. She first dipped her toe into songwriting soon after, at the tender age of twelve. A few years later, at fifteen, Sara picked up the guitar and the rest is history.
Born to Hungarian parents, and raised in London, Sara’s journey has been an unconventional one. Although Camden is her home, she is currently completing a degree at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, America, returning to London regularly. Her sound as an artist draws upon the Pop/Indie genre and she takes influence from the likes of Ellie Goulding.
Sara has been sharing her songs on Soundcloud for four years and, a few months ago, released her first EP. She performed at the Sziget festival in August, and returned to the UK to perform an intimate gig at Under The Bridge in Fulham.
Her first single, Dance For Your Life, was released in the summer.
