Portland native, vocalist, songwriter and community activist Sarah Clarke let us into her world for our latest Drop-in Session interview…and we’re pretty sure we never want to leave!

Sarah shared her music – including music from her new project Outer Orbit – and gave us a glimpse into how she found her way onto the stage as front woman of local neo-funk act Dirty Revival.

But Sarah is so much more than just a powerhouse vocalist, she is a community activist and founder of Musicians in Solidarity – a 501(c)(3) formed and dedicated to building equitable platforms and programming within the music community.

She also acts as Co-Director of LEAP – an arm of Music Portland – to identify equity issues within Portland’s music scene.

Hear the full interview (below) and then tune in Sunday May 2 at 5pm for a special episode of Culture Hub PDX.  Sarah is joined by her LEAP Co-Director David “OG One” Jackson and MP Policy Council member Jamie Dunphy for a deeper dive into LEAP’s vision for a musically inclusive and diverse Portland.

~Drop-In Sessions are funded by the Autzen and Collins Foundations and the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition~
