Acoustic Cafe: Sarah McGowan Performs “Good Man”


(WTNH) – Singer-songwriter and Connecticut native Sarah McGowan is back to perform her latest song “Good Man.”

Pop/Rock/Folk singer-Songwriter Sarah McGowan has earned raves for her debut full-length album ‘For Whom They Sing’, with writers saying “It’s on par with recent efforts by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson.” Sarah also co-produced the album. She describes her sound as ‘sweet, with an edge’ — Inspired by such diverse artists as The Strokes, Amy Winehouse and The Ronettes, McGowan says  “My goal with this album was to have every song sound unique and have a little “edge”, whether it is through a quirky lyric or an unusual instrument in the mix.” McGowan’s keen eye for style and fashion are on display in her visually arresting clip for focus track ‘When I Come Home’.


Sarah is a native of Darien, CT — Sarah began writing songs at the age of 14, performing her first original piece at a high school composition concert in her hometown of Darien, CT in 2007. She continued to write and perform locally. In 2010, Sarah began attending New York University, pursuing a B.A. in Music and Spanish. In the fall of her freshman year (2010), she made her New York City debut, playing at The Red Lion.


In 2013, she lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 4 months and studied Latin American music, as well as how to play the charango, a South American stringed instrument. Living in South America was a huge inspiration for Sarah’s music.
