Grit + wit + Gratitude + attitude
Songsmith Sara Trunzo writes the quirks and wisdom of rural northerners – particularly young women – in a fresh and un-romantic voice. While mainstream country music pines over southern red dirt, Sara draws on 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. Drawing influence from songwriters like Darrell Scott, Mary Gauthier, and Robert Hunter- she mines the untold story from the unlikely narrator. Sara plays music in Maine with The Dog Hounds and William Joseph Jiordan. In the south, Britton Patrick Morgan and Casey Lambert.
Her debut EP 'thanks birdie' came out in July 2017.
