NIAGARA UNIVERSITY, N.Y. – Touring around in a 1987 Ford Coachman, with a song in her heart and guitar in her hand, Savannah King is truly living out her dream. Ever since the Wilson -native songwriter started playing guitar at 13-years-old, she knew she wanted to be performing and creating music.
After being raised in a musical household, she developed an appreciation for music at an early age. Through voice lessons, a diverse music taste from her dad and even a music room in her house, she has been preparing all her life to share her talent with the world.
Not only did she start making and recording music at a young age, she also started touring by high school. King would record her music and send it to perspective venues. This love for traveling and performing inspired her to continue her education at Fredonia college. This is where she received her B.A. in Business Administration with a focus in the music industry program. With this opportunity, she was able to meet her future band members, tour with them and have it count as internship credit.
When King graduated she was equipped with experiences to create music and run a band.
One of her best experiences in performing was when she got to open for Emmy Lou Harris for 3,000-4,000 people and she still receives feedback from that performance.
King is currently driving around the United States in her van with her boyfriend performing at as many venues as possible.
“It’s the perfect combination of traveling and playing music, two things I love the most,” King said.
She has also just finished recording her latest album in Nashville, Tennessee. She raised money for this album by gathering money from a Kickstarter. King is hoping it will be ready for the public by mid-January.
