23-year-old Savannah Harmon stems from upstate New York, a state that has a history for producing some of the toughest & most strong-willed individuals. She also comes from a family whose values are the very definitions of well-balanced and supportive. Inspired by the classic icon Johnny Cash and most recent success, Maren Morris, this talented entertainer began honing her craft at the age of six by accepting roles in local musical productions like The Sound of Music and A Christmas Carol.
Savannah spent most of her childhood living in a place where independent spirits and an energetic community come together in harmony; Syracuse, New York. That community characteristic taught Harmon the importance of focusing on the things that truly matter & doing what makes you happy.
“Now that I’ve moved four times in one year, my hometown is what I miss more than anything. All my stories that turned into my very first songs took place here, and it will always be close to my heart.”
Savannah’s musical influences showed her the importance of connecting to a crowd and capturing their attention through her lyrics and her performance. Her sincerity & passionate delivery of her art commands attention when she steps on to the stage night after night. From the moment she walks on stage; towing her guitar in hand , her fans know they’re in for a fun night and a performance that they won’t soon forget.
“I love how music constantly evolves. However, I think reverting back to the old creates a sturdy foundation on which you can create a new sound.”
“This current project is a word for word story of the last two years of my life. Every song you hear is written either for a specific person or situation. The only way I know how to write is to pull from personal experience, and these last two years were full of them. First love, the beginning of something new when you lose it and don’t ever think you’ll feel it again and realizations that only come with growing up are all over these next singles. My life bleeds into my lyrics, and these songs are no exception. ”
Savannah uses the same principles that her musical influence Johnny Cash used; writing lyrics down on napkins and writing exclusively from experience, or from the heart. She believes that if the lyrics are honest and the lyrics come from a real place, that song immediately stands out from the others.
“Real stuff is all I ever want to write about. It’s the only way I know how to write and writing is the only thing I really think I know how to do.”
When asked about what advice she would give to someone entering the music industry, Savannah had this to say. “Work your ass off, trust your inner circle and always be willing to lend someone a helping hand without forgetting the ones who lent you theirs.”
