Sarah Meyz

Runner

Sarah Meyz was born and raised in Brazil and has been involved with music from a very young age. She started to play harmonica when she was 11 years old and had an instant and strong connection with the instrument. At that time, Sarah became the youngest endorser for Brazilian harmonica brand, Bends, playing and touring with many renowned musicians across the country. 
 
In 2012, she was awarded a scholarship from a partnership between Berklee College of Music and the Lollapalooza Festival to attend a one-week programme at Berklee’s campus in Valencia, Spain. On the last day of the course, she was awarded a second scholarship, this time to the five-week programme at Berklee’s main campus in Boston.
 
As a result of her unique performances and powerful stage presence, Sarah was invited to play at the Lollapalooza Festival in São Paulo in 2013, performing with her solo band, featuring her father, Alberto, on drums her sister, Marília, on guitar, Victor Abla on bass and Vasco Faé on guitar. A few months later, she flew to Boston to start the five-week programme at Berklee. There she got the opportunity to audition for a scholarship to be a full time student, and at the end of the course, Sarah was awarded a Full Tuition scholarship from the prestigious institution. At Berklee, Sarah also discovered a new passion of hers: recording, production and everything related to the studio universe. She graduated in 2019, Summa Cum Laude, with a double degree in Music Production & Engineering and Vocal Performance, as well as a minor in Commercial Record Production. During her time in the US, she got to work and play with artists and producers including Ethan Johns, Seu Jorge, Sylvia Massy, Daru Jones, Ken Scott and Ebonie Smith amongst many others. 
 
Her last semester was spent in the UK, completing an internship with re-recording mixer Andrew Wilson, as he was working on the Disney Nature film, Elephant. She also got to work at a variety of studios including Real World, Wounded Buffalo and Abbey Road, participating in ADR, Foley, mixing and recording sessions.
 
The past two years were fully dedicated to producing and recording her own music, as well as other artists around the world. Her style is a mixture of Pop and Indie, combining electronic and real instruments, especially harmonica, processed and recorded in many alternative and 'unorthodox' ways. To Sarah, it is all a matter of knowing the rules, so she can break the rules. “It is not about the equipment or the space you have" she says. "Being a pro, to me, is dominating the ability to translate your knowledge across any and all situations you encounter as an engineer or producer. From a bedroom recording using only a computer and an interface, to recording a large orchestra in the most equipped of studios.” She adds: “It is a true honour to be a part of the Abbey Road family. It has been a wild and fun journey so far and I cannot wait for all that is still to come!”
