Sarah Quintana

Internationally touring singer-songwriter Sarah Quintana continues to charm audiences throughout the United States and in France, where she frequently splits her time.  A devoted guitarist with an instantly recognizable voice, Quintana offers performances rich in jazz, folk, and contemporary pop.  

As a New Orleans native, Quintana attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) and received a CODOFIL heritage scholarship, which allowed her to live in France.  Her experiences there would lead to later excursions singing on the streets of Provence and traveling with a circus.  As she grew as a performer and artist, Quintana performed on stage at New Orleans’ world famous Jazz and Heritage Festival and at the Lincoln Center with swing band The New Orleans Moonshiners.  She also returned to France to perform alongside saxophonist Raphael Imbert, and still tours throughout the country with her own repertoire.  

Quintana’s latest album, Miss River (2015), featured collaborations with Mark Bingham and homages to dueling strength and fragility of Louisiana’s traditions and wetlands environment.  She continues to perform across America and France.


“Sarah Quintana is a hugely promising presence on the New Orleans music scene, a favorite singer who can deliver classic New Orleans jazz and French chanson with equal skill.” Tom McDermott

“[Quintana] honed her folksy jazz style during a decade on the jazz scene in France, where she splits her time, and from years on Frenchmen Street.” Offbeat Magazine
