About Sarah Reeves:
Pop artist and songwriter Sarah Reeves signed her first record deal at age 18. After years of aggressive touring, Reeves took an indefinite hiatus to focus solely on songwriting, penning songs for the likes of Jesus Culture, Kari Jobe and Natalie Grant, among others. With a fresh sound stirring in her soul, Reeves began writing personal songs she, herself, wanted to record, which led to a new label deal with Word Entertainment. Since then, Reeves has reintroduced herself as an artist to audiences across the nation on the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular and on tours with Crowder, Plumb, NewSong and more. When she’s home in Nashville, Reeves regularly leads worship at The Belonging Co. Throughout 2018, she’ll be releasing new music, piece by piece, culminating in a brand new 13-track full length project. For more information, visit www.sarahreevesmusic.com.
