Sarah and the Safe Word
It was August 2015, and Sarah Rose had reached her limit with the Atlanta music scene. It wasn’t you—it was her. Both Sarah’s and her friend Kienan’s respective bands had met their demise a year previously, and to be honest, it was a weight off their shoulders. There had been social expectations that were impossible to meet, and the music had become predictable, like so many other local bands. But there was hope. There was a vision of something better in the back of their minds, a vision that soon became the unstoppable, stumbling juggernaut known as Sarah & the Safe Word. Since that fateful summer, after releasing their first EP Afterlife and adding Brandon Ward to the group, Sarah & the Safe Word has played the main stage at GMX in Nashville, successfully completed a $1,000+ fundraising campaign, been invited to open for and play with several national touring acts, and been produced by Ace Enders (The Early November) and Bradley Walden (Emarosa), with their first major release poised to be set loose in early 2017.
