Sarah Packiam

Indie // Miami, Wicklow

Dublin-born singer-songwriter Sarah Packiam spent her formative years in Greystones, soaking in a rich tapestry of multicultural influences that shaped her biracial identity. Her father from India, a blues guitarist who ignited her passion for music, and an Irish mother endowed with a natural gift for poetry,

At the age of 14, Sarah made her mark by representing Ireland with her poignant composition "Homeless Teenage Girl" in prestigious contests like the 2FM Song Contest and SCYPE (Song Contest for Young People in Europe). The competition wins led her to sign with EMI Records Ireland.

In 2000, Sarah relocated to Spain, where she honed her craft alongside her family band, on stages of bars and restaurants up to eight times a week. Through the 8 years of live performances, she had time to fine-tune her favorite instruments, guitar, mandolin, piano, and harmonica. All the while, still writing songs and collaborating with producers.

In 2004 Sarah's talent drew the attention of Grammy Award-winning producers in Miami, who recognized her potential and invited her to collaborate on recording and writing projects.

Today, Sarah resides in the countryside of Miami, where she finds solace in tending to her garden and creating music in her home studio. Her latest release, "More Love to Save the World," reflects a return to her roots, channeling the same heartfelt messages that captivated audiences in her teenage years, now intertwined with themes of peace, women's rights, self-love, and the will to keep going through times of struggle.

In addition to her musical endeavors, Sarah has ventured into the world of television, securing the role of host for an HBO music show in Miami. Within her bilingual fluency in English and Spanish, she engages with a diverse array of Latin artists. The show was nominated for an International EMMY in 2021.

Looking ahead, Sarah's journey continues to unfold with the anticipation of three new singles set for release in 2024. Among them is "Home," a poignant homage to her Irish heritage and familial bonds, featuring collaborations with her father and brother and produced by Grammy-winning maestro Tim Mitchell.
