Sarah De Vallière (previously Eide) is an award-winning composer, pianist, singer/songwriter, and sound designer currently residing in the Greater Chicago area. With a talent for versatility and collaboration, she graduated magna cum laude from the world-renowned Berklee College of Music with a B.A. in Film Scoring. Sarah has worked on a wide range of visual media projects, including short films, feature-length films, commercials, and videogames.
Having been classically trained on the piano since 5 years old, her music has a distinctly melodic quality, which lends itself well to the writing of memorable themes. While classical music grounded her in technique and musical proficiency, she also soaked in the sounds of many different genres of music, from electronic to ethnic, rock to jazz, and everything in between. Through this, she matured into a chameleon-like composer, not only writing in most genres but also uniquely capable of blending different styles of music.
As a songwriter, she has also collaborated extensively with musicians, lyricists, and poets, writing songs that have received much acclaim. Over the past few years, her music has been performed in front of audiences both intimate and large by some of the best upcoming singers and musicians in the business. Much of her success is due not only to her musical proficiency and creativity but also to her innate ability to work with her colleagues and clients in a personal and professional way.
