Award-winning songsmith Sara Trunzo writes the quirks and wisdom of rural northerners in a fresh and un-romantic voice. While mainstream country music pines over southern red dirt, Trunzo pulls from a decade of running a food bank farm where she helped get local produce into the hands of rural Mainers living in poverty. Her time in the farm fields, fishing boats, community meetings, and food pantry warehouses of Maine add wrinkles to her characters and place to their places. She draws influence from- and has studied with- master songwriters Darrell Scott and Mary Gauthier. Trunzo strives to cultivate songs that instigate healing, truth-telling, and transformation with her unique lens of grit, wit, gratitude, and attitude. Her debut EP ‘thanks birdie’ was released in 2017; she toured nationally in 2018; her first full-length album is slated for an early 2019 release. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee and Unity, Maine and on the road.
