Savannah Pope is a critically acclaimed rock singer-songwriter who boasts stunning lyricism, vocal power, and visual presence. Named Best Hard Rock Performer by LA Weekly, she a new unique brand of soulful rock steeped in art and history.
Formerly the lead vocalist of award-winning glam rock group SpaceCream, Savannah has been a fixture in the Los Angeles music scene for several years, opening for international acts like Starcrawler and Jesse Hughes. Since breaking into a solo career just one year ago months ago, she has wowed fans and press alike with her growing artistic presence. LA Weekly recently named her one of the city’s best artists, and Yahoo Music picked her “Creature” music video for their top 20 of 2018 list, marking her as a formidable underdog in a catalog of otherwise major artists. Don’t miss what LA Weekly called a “full blown spectacle” in which Pope’s “powerful vocals are as big and brassy and her presentation is colorfully fantastic”!
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.
