Born in Nashville, TN, Sav’s love of music began on a tour bus with her multi-instrumentalist father and R&B vocalist mother when she was three months old. At eleven, she picked up violin and dove headfirst into improvisational folk and jazz, reggae, funk, and rock. By sixteen, she’d become a versatile session player, composer, arranger, and performer. She added Takamine guitars, Fender basses, viola, mandolin, banjo, and musical saw to her arsenal, and went from writing novels to penning songs, drawing inspiration from heroes like Andrew Bird and Neko Case. Her songs are vulnerable, compelling, and saturated with vivid imagery, and colored with five-string violin arrangements thanks to her sponsors, Liquid and Knudson Electric Violins. She has been described by IPR as “one of the most compelling songwriters of our day.”
