hi there. i'm sara barry, a 22-year-old musician and songwriter from the jersey shore. teen idle is my music project. i've been writing songs ever since i bought my first blue made-in-china acoustic guitar in 4th grade, but for the longest time i was never interested in sharing my music. i only wrote songs for my own fun, until something pushed me to share them during my last year of college. i was living in NYC, hoping the planets would align for me to live there forever, but then things changed. i moved back home to NJ and teen idle was born.
teen idle is a fusion of everything that's ever influenced me - from the '90s slowcore to the jazz albums to the old films.
