Piece Of The Action

Joan “Sarah” Hamilton was born on May 12, 1957, in the district of Bois Content, St. Catherine, Jamaica. She attended the Bois Content All Age School, and then she migrated to Kingston where she attended St. Georges College Extension and the Jamaica School of Commerce. She majored in Secretarial Studies and Accounting at Jamaica School Of Commerce.

Sarah’s love for music, influenced by her parents, started at an early age. Although her brothers thought she could not sing, and would often mocked her, she gave this distraction no attention; and when asked, she would do renditions of the popular songs of the day at school concerts and other functions.

In 1974 Sarah met Winston Jarrett of the Righteous Flames who invited her to the studio to work on a track with the group. This was Sarah’s first time in the studio and around a microphone. The song she worked on was entitled “Don’t Get Weary”. Sarah found encouragement in this and became determine to pursue a career in the music industry.

She then went to Jammy’s Recording Studio where she met various artiste, renown locally and internationally, who gave her valuable pointers. Most importantly she met producer Bravo who asked her to do some tracks for him. Among the tracks she did for Bravo was a cover version of Crystal Gayle’s “Brown Eyes Blue” which got some airplay. She also did “Sorry” – a Tracy Chapman’s composition – which was released in Japan. Although the association with Bravo did not last long, valuable experiences and lessons were learnt.ar

Sarah went on to work with various labels, including Majestic Sound, with which she did her most popular and first original song. This song was titled “Peace and love”, and it received satisfactory airplay.

Currently Sarah is working on a single entitled "A Piece Of The Action" , soon to be released, on the Rootical Dubber label. She hopes this will be the big break she has been waiting on.
