Sarah Boyle is a composer, vocalist, and pianist residing in Cleveland, Ohio. They currently pursue independent study in musicology. They use this study as a vehicle for their creative work, seeking to understand musical expression and its impact on people and cultures as well as its utility in evoking memory and emotion in its writers and their audiences.

In 2019, they graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Composition at Cleveland State University, where they wrote formal compositions for orchestra, strings, and piano while specializing in choral works and art songs. Their compositions have been premiered by the Cleveland State University Chorale, the Topaz Film Festival, and the Vegas Movie Awards. Sarah also operates in their community as a teacher, vocal coach, and singer-songwriter. They are widely regarded for maintaining the most well-designed third floor attic apartment in Cleveland.
