Connect with Savannah Pope: Facebook
Savannah Pope is a female rock vocalist who brings to the table her unique perspective of the world to a set of magical vocal chords, that will blow you away and that might friends might simply be an understatement. Born in LA, Pope was an angsty, precocious, and a unique kid who wound up at a boarding school for wayward teens when she was 14 years old. Pope explains, “I was sent away because I was a depressed and a feral thing prone to running away all the time.” While Pope was there, a friend taught her some chords on the guitar, which prompted Pope to start writing songs. After high school, Pope traveled extensively. “I went to Ecuador with some hardcore hippies and we lived off the land. We climbed volcanoes, and one guy actually got hit by lightning. No joke. We also stayed with Quechua natives in the jungle for a hot minute. As it turns out, I am entirely unremarkable in the art of being one with nature.” Pope continued her nomadic life and while back in Los Aneles, she wandered onstage during a friend’s open mic and got an incredible response. And she’s been hooked ever since.
Pope established herself in the Los Angeles music scene while being the vocalist and leader of the glam rock band SpaceCream, which released the acclaimed album Pterodactyl Sky in 2016. The band performed at: LA Fashion Week and opened for national artists such as Jesse Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal), Nick Oliveri (Queens of the Stone Age), and VOLTO (Danny Carey of Tool). SpaceCream won the Battle for Vans Warped Tour at House of Blues Hollywood (RIP) and played numerous live shows at storied venues like the Viper Room and the Troubadour. Pope is now presenting a new chapter of her art rock steeped in glam and progressive rock. A sound that is anchored with her power house vocals and supported by exciting musicianship to unleash a robust and theatricality rock sound. That’s the short of it!
