We were extremely excited to have Sara Niemietz back with us, fresh off her European tour with Postmodern Jukebox, for Episode 82 of ‘Conversations’ with Brett and Mike on NextBigThingRadio.net!
A Chicago-native, Sara Niemietz moved to California over a decade ago, in search of creative opportunities. Since then, she has starred on Broadway (Carol Burnett’s Hollywood Arms), appeared in television and film (Akeelah and the Bee, Glee), recorded vocals for many scores and projects, released four albums, appeared on The Ellen Show, and even sang in Times Square before 50,000 people!
In 2013, Sara was thrilled to return to the Mark Taper Forum to play the role of Wanda in Enter Laughing, a one-night production, fundraiser, and tribute to Carl Reiner. That year, she was also invited to sing with BJ Thomas at the Grand Ole Opry. Her songs were heard on Delta Airline’s in-flight Singer-Songwriter channel for the duration of the summer. Sara’s rendition of “Turn! Turn! Turn!” was heard in the 2014 season of Under the Dome.
She has performed with the likes of Richard Marx, Will Herrington as well as her musical mentor and friend, W.G. Snuffy Walden. To this day, Sara Niemietz spends countless hours honing her craft.
Recently, Sara was honored to reprise the role of Wanda in the sold-out run of Enter Laughing at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. Melissa Manchester and Sara recently co-wrote “Feeling for You,” the first single from Melissa’s new album, You Gotta Love the Life.
Sara’s rendition of “At Last” was featured in ABC’s Scandal Season 5 promo and her newest EP of original songs, Fountain and Vine, was released. Sara was excited to join Postmodern Jukebox for their 2016 European tour, performing in thirty countries, and their North American tour of over thirty cities. Her videos with the collective have garnered millions of views.
We talk about life on the road, find out where Sara writes on the road (here’s a hint, it’s also known as a throne room!), we hear a brand new track from her forthcoming album, Monroe, and Sara even played a song for us LIVE! It’s so good, you’ll get chills!
