Sarah Hoth (Guitar, Vocals, Percussion)
Sarah has been involved with music from a young age. Her passion for stage drama and music led her to attend Webster University where she was educated in fine arts, including drama, dance, music theory and voice. Sarah's constant pursuit of compelling vocal harmonies can be credited to decades of choral work, most recently with the St. Louis Symphony's In Unison chorus.
Sarah's inspired by powerhouse female vocalist-musicians like Alicia Keys, Grace Potter and Samantha Fish, and was a member of local rock cover band, Over Head Dog. Sarah’s hope is that HHW’s music brings fun and joy to all those who hear it!
