Native Mother Lode Singer Builds Fan Base

Sponsored by:

Sara Oliveira, Sonora High School Graduate (class of 2006), is not only chasing her musical dreams but is quickly gaining notice.

Oliveira was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

Raised in the Mother Lode, Oliveira thinks that her music echoes the beauty and freedom of where she spent her childhood.

Oliveira now lives in Redding, CA and works for the Bethel School of Ministry in the Media Department. Oliveira performs frequently around the region’s various restaurants, wine bars and coffee shops.

“I’ve been building a great fan base in the Redding area,” says Oliveira. “The people there and back here in the Mother Lode are very supportive.”

On a recent trip to Twain Harte this past summer, Oliveira was invited to open for the popular local group “Chains Required”. She feels that she was very well received.

“Right Here Right Now” is Oliveira’s lead track off her debut EP “Things Untold”. The song was recorded at PopGun Studios in Nashville, TN.

On January 14, 2014 Oliveira will release her next EP called “Chasing the Day”. She describes her music as “folk-pop”.

Oliveira would like to take the next step in 2014 and move to Nashville, to continue to build her music career.
