Sarah Montes

Not only is Sarah dynamic and simply adorable on stage; Sarah is a singer- songwriter to love. And just when you think you know her, she magically transforms… revealing colorfully, captivating insight that compels the listener and viewer with the desire for more.

Childhood drama and psychological trauma; there was none. Unless you consider the fact that my childhood was molded by fairy tales, show tunes and a warped version of the catechism; which only served to engage my highly spirited and overly zealous imagination! Go figure….

I grew up with an array of musical influences. My mother, a professional ballet dancer; had the family record player spinning Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and various Broadway musicals. When the records did stop; my father played flamenco guitar with really cool syncopated Latin rhythms. And my older sister would listen to the local am radio station introducing me to a plethora of musical genres so between them all; they formed the inspiration and foundation for my musical dreams and the obligatory nightmares

After performing in 52 cities around the world and over 2,800 performances to her credit, (which she proudly thanks Las Vegas for that astonishing number) Sarah is truly at home on stage. Her sassy and playful attitude combined with her natural ease and sincere passion creates an emotionally charged and captivating experience with the audience. Sarah has toured with a variety of show bands including her own band throughout the United States; performing at corporate engagements, U. S. Military events and the show rooms of Las Vegas. She has performed live with numerous well known artists such as the Jordanaires, the Guy Lombardo Orchestra, The Letterman, Debbie Reynolds, Jerry Lewis, Wayne Newton, and Porter Wagner.

When Sarah accidentally met Producer Keith Olsen; under the guise of him being a salesman for Dolby, a bonding friendship was formed. Later Keith produced her CD, self entitled "Sarah" which received nationally syndicated airplay.

When it comes to Sarah…one can never get enough!


“I like a jazz singer named Sarah Montes- you should buy a CD next chance you get.” Alexandra LaDuca; Noel Hynd’s MIDNIGHT IN MADRID,THE RUSSIAN TRILOGY-BOOK TWO

“I love Sarah Montes. Her music makes me happy. The performances, arrangements and songs take me back to the music that my parents loved and shared, but also to the fun and sophisticated performances of the great jazz singers of today. Her band is fabulous and frames her unique and compelling vocals with style, skill and class. Great music that is fun, compelling and timeless. She brightens up my day (and night), and as a bonus, has some great wheels.” Ed Cherney- Grammy winning producer and engineer
