Sara Beth Yurow
Sara Beth Yurow is a pop-punk artist originally from Kailua. You may have seen her singing with YouTuber Guitaro5000 in his viral series “Sing With Me”, partying in Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, or on Netflix in Yes! Day, Moxie, or All-American to name a few.
She began writing songs at age 10, and wrote most of her first songs during class at Aikahi Elementary and Kailua Intermediate School. She attended Allegra Performing Arts Center after school, where she got her start singing publicly during Allegra’s year-end productions at Castle High School, coached in modern voice by Anmercil Canoneo. In high school, she performed island-wide as part of Hawaii Youth Opera Chorus, and continued her private training at Bel Canto School of Singing in Kaimuki under the tutelage of Betty Grierson & Neva Rego where she studied Classical Italian Voice, followed by Windward Choral Society with Susan McCreary Duprey & the Windward Choral Singers at Windward Community College.
A graduate of University of Hawaii at Manoa, she was part of their Concert Choir, through which she was able to appear as a back-up singer to Rachel Platten for the 2016 ESPN Pro Bowl Pregame Show. That experience, coupled with appearing on Hawai’i Five-0, and representing Susan Page Modeling in Disney World at the semi-annual Talent Inc Industry Showcase, inspired Sara Beth to move to Los Angeles to pursue music professionally, where she met her producer, Warner Songwriter Natalia Bortolotti. Twice Grammy Nominated for Engineering & Sound Design on Dua Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia” and “Intentions” by Justin Bieber ft. Quavo, Natalia’s other credits include work with Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and Post Malone.
Sara Beth’s EP “Mischievous”- taken from her Hawaiian name Makale’a (Hawaiian for ‘mischievous eyes’)- pays homage to every part of her; from her local girl roots on “Cuz I’m in Luv”, to her Rock N Roll edge in “Don’t Wanna Be Strong” & “Spin”, dipping into production herself in “Twenty One Night Stands”, and the intersection of them all in “What About”.
“Mischievous” is set for release January 26, 2024, with supporting singles “Twenty One Night Stands” and “Cuz I’m in Luv” now streaming on all major platforms.
