It isn't easy to pigeonhole Sara Curtin's indie-rock, folk-pop sound. The Washington City Paper describes her 2017 album Or So It Seemed as "a full portrait of a human being: nuanced, complex, and contradictory." She writes honest, autobiographical songs inviting the listener to reflect on their own experience. Born and raised in DC, the influences present in her songwriting are eclectic. That Music Magazine calls Sara "a gifted songwriter who understands that you don't write because you want to say something, but because you have something to say and she sure as heck says it exquisitely." She has performed across the US, UK, and Ireland, and is a current DCCAH Artist Fellow. Brightest Young Things names her "One of DC's finest."

The Sara Curtin Five is:
Sara (vocals, electric guitar)
Olivia Mancini (electric guitar)
Maureen Andary (vocals, acoustic guitar)
Ryan Walker (vocals, bass)
