Sara Storer is an Australian country music singer. She won seven Golden Guitars in the Tamworth National Country Music Festival 2004 awards in Tamworth, which is a record in the 32-year history of the awards.
She was born in the Mallee district of Victoria where her parents grew wheat. She studied to be a teacher in Melbourne and then headed north in the mid-1990s. Living in Camooweal, she met a retired water buffalo shooter whose stories inspired her to write Buffalo Bill, her first song.
Nine months later, she moved to Kalkaringi in the Northern Territory, a small aboriginal settlement where she worked as a schoolteacher and started performing at parties all over the Northern Territory.
Having been talked into entering a talent quest at Adelaide River by a friend, she won the Encouragement Award giving her automatic entry into the College of Country Music held in Tamworth two weeks before the Country Music Festival in 2000. While attending the College, she met Garth Porter, former keyboard player with Sherbet, and a producer of Australian country singers Lee Kernaghan and Gina Jeffreys.
