Interview and performances - Savanna Coen

Hmmm. I guess I began my singing career at age five, when, as the story goes, I sang the Cinderella classic, “So This Is Love,” at my kindergarten talent show, leaving numerous moms in tears. However, it took four more years without singing, followed by a show-stealing number in a local play, for me to realize that singing and music are my passions.

I’ve since opened for the Slug Queen competition, perform regularly on stage at Saturday Market and venues in and around Eugene, and was the surprise highlight of the Willamette Valley Blues & Brews Festival. I’ve been part of the Kidz Rock lineup, as well as the Grrrlz Rock Festival for the past few years, and this past summer, went to Chicago to a first-of-its-kind blues camp, where I studied with some of the genre’s greats.

Now at age 13, I’m exploring interests in many musical genres — from rock and pop to jazz — but blues is what touches my soul.
