EPA’s for the tour are under way, so City Audition thought we’d give you a head start on this indie pop treat. Sara Bareilles’ music falls squarely in the pop world of the 2000’s and 2010’s. I’ve included a few of her lesser known gems below, as well as some pieces by other artists to help you get your search started. All of this music is fun, but try to pick a piece that shows off your vocal range. Be sure to demonstrate story telling or an emotional arc similar to the character you’re auditioning for.

2. Machine Gun (Sara Bareilles)

I feel like no one ever does this WONDERFUL, UNDER-RATED show. If you're discovering it for the first time, you're in for a treat!
I used to think that every person pursuing a musical theatre career should be required to swing. Like a theatrical version of compulsory military duty.
