Sarah is the newest member of The Tippers. Joining in the summer of 2012, Sarah added a critical dynamic to The Tippers' sound. A bassist since 2002, Sarah has participated in countless symphonies and string ensembles, as well as pep and jazz bands. While in high school, Sarah was a member of the Kansas City Youth Symphony in addition to her school orchestra. She studied under Kansas City bass guru Johnny Hamil before being accepted on scholarship to Shenandoah University-Conservatory in Virginia.
In 2015, Sarah graduated with a degree in Bass Performance from Shenandoah University-Conservatory. She is pursuing graduate degrees in ethnomusicology at the University of Texas at Austin.
Sarah's down-to-business on-stage demeanor is met with an uncanny knack for drawing just the right sound from either the electric or upright bass.
