Sarah Fimm is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, residing in Woodstock, NY.[1]

Fimm was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Her grandmother is a Holocaust survivor.[1] She toured and collaborated with singer Peter Murphy (of Bauhaus), and supported Delerium[2] in 2008. Her music has been featured on MTV's Real World/Road Rules, Mark Hamill’s Comic Book: The Movie, D.E.B.S. (soundtrack from the motion picture),[3] and the Lifetime channel, among others. Fimm's voice can be heard on Iggy Pops versions of Serge Gainsbourg’s ‘La Javanaise’ and ‘Et Si Tu N`Existais Pas’. Fimm plays piano, sings, and writes her own songs.[4] She has "received continual accolades from Rolling Stone and Billboard for her stellar songwriting."[5]

Billboard called A Perfect Dream (2002) an album that "contained a chilling, isolated beauty" and Nexus (2004) a "stunning celestial journey."[6] Billboard compared her work on A Perfect Dream to work by Tori Amos.[7] The Charleston Gazette echoed the comparison to Amos and wrote that Fimm is "not afraid to tell the world how she really feels."[8]

Her work on Near Infinite Possibility (2011) (produced by David Baron) shows influences from Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Heart,[9] and featured musicians such as Josh Freese,[10] Brian Viglione, Earl Slick, Sterling Campbell, John Andrews and others.

Fimm has been involved in outdoor art installations through an initiative called Inspire Art.[11]

In 2015, with the help of music producer David Baron, two more albums came to fruition – Potnia Theron[12] (2015) and Adaquarium (2015).[13]

Given Never Offered (2018)[14] is her latest release. The album features producer David Baron, multi-instrumentalist Erik Lawrence, bassist Sara Lee, and drummer Ben Perowsky.

Fimm is currently on the platform Patreon, releasing exclusive content in exchange for a "piece of her soul."[15]
