Sara Gougeon is a contemporary folk artist. Gougeon writes heart-wrenching lyrics that she gently tucks into sweet, folky melodies. She's a seamstress of words, quilting together songs that you find yourself wrapped up in. Using stories and personal experiences, she crafts songs that are honest and relatable.
Gougeon's accomplished writing led her to be selected as a finalist for the well-respected John Lennon Songwriting Contest in 2018, an international contest established by Yoko Ono in 1997.
Gougeon originates from Sudbury, Ontario, and has moved several times over to pursue music. At 14 years old, she packed her bags for Northern Michigan, where she spent her high school career studying songwriting at Interlochen Arts Academy. Following high school, Gougeon studied at Berklee College of Music.
“Home Again” Gougeon's debut EP was released on August, 17th 2018, and was followed by a 10 day tour of Ontario.
Gougeon then released “Invisible Closet” for pride month, a gay anthem for the LGBT community.
