Savannah Pope makes incendiary, soulful rock music. Her songs boast stunning lyricism and vocal power. Her stage presence is larger than life, and should be experienced firsthand by any music lover. Influenced by such luminaries as David Bowie; Amy Winehouse; Lou Reed; Queen; Joni Mitchell; Gossip; Rocky Horror Picture Show; and Heart, her music blends classic rock elements with a unique modern sensibility. Critics have deemed her vocal chops stunning and unique.
Savannah has been a fixture in the Los Angeles music scene for over five years. Until one year ago, she was the vocalist and leader of glam rock band SpaceCream, which released the acclaimed album Pterodactyl Sky in 2016. As lead singer for SpaceCream, Savannah played LA Fashion Week and opened for national artists such as Jesse Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal), Nick Oliveri (Queens of the Stone Age), and VOLTO (Danny Carey of Tool). SpaceCream won the Battle for Vans Warped Tour at House of Blues Hollywood (RIP) and played numerous live shows at storied venues like the Viper Room and the Troubadour.
Born in LA, Savannah’s background story is unquestionably different from the average musician’s. She was an angsty, precocious, and unique kid who wound up at a boarding school for wayward teens when she was 14 years old. “I was sent away because I was a depressed and feral thing prone to running away all the time,” she reveals. “My parents never knew where I was.” It was at that very school that a friend taught Savannah some chords on the guitar, which prompted her to start writing songs.
After high school, Savannah traveled extensively. “I went to Ecuador with some hardcore hippies and we lived off the land. We climbed volcanoes, and one guy actually got hit by lightning. No joke. We also stayed with Quechua natives in the jungle for a hot minute. As it turns out, I am entirely unremarkable in the art of being one with nature.” Savannah then went to college, dropped out, stopped by Harlem for a while, spent a year painting/being a wild thing in Barcelona, and eventually landed back where her journey began…in Los Angeles. She fell in love with performing by accident, when she wandered onstage during a friend’s open mic and got an incredible response. And she’s been hooked ever since.
Perhaps the best way to immerse oneself in Savannah’s world is to see her onstage. Savannah utilizes her live performances to present a new brand of art rock steeped in glam and prog; an unpaired blend of riveting musicianship, garish style, and theatricality.
