Sarah “Cranberry” Burgess is a musician, DJ, performer, music producer and aspiring website designer living in San Diego, CA. Sarah feels that performing music is a unique and all encompassing experience for the musician and listener. Using all available technology and musical avenues, Sarah shares her unique expression with the world.
Sarah is currently associated with 3 DJ crews; The Shaft Crew, Simpler Times, and Lady Lush/Native Alien. She is occasionally roped into organizing events, bringing together performers and crews from around the world, to merge community in the sharing of music.
Since 2006, Sarah Cranberry has participated in numerous performance groups and collaborations for events all over Southern California and Mexico. Her love of electronic music drives her to the dancefloor, where she plugs in her acoustic violin and improvises over live dj sets. Sarah has danced in dance troupes, fire performer troups, and circus groups. Through the exploration of various musical styles and performance opportunities, Sarah continues to blaze her path forward.
Since May of 2013, Sarah mixes tracks while playing Live Violin. Sarah has performed in numerous festivals and clubs in Southern California and Mexico, including Contact, Electric Poncho, Youtopia, Lucidity Festival, and Fuente Eterno.
Major influences include Greg Vaughan of “Danyavaad and the Shimmy Sisters,” for showing Sarah how to shred on the violin as though it were a guitar. Sarah started recording on electronic music tracks in Ruben Valas’ (aka Dr. 42) living room in 2008. Performing with Duckman as the group “Duckberry Crunch” propelled Sarah into the electronic scene, from which there is no return.
