Sarah Bowman was born in America and got her start singing in coffee shops with her twin sister. She and the Swiss Rene Burrell, now her husband, formed a band in 2012.

Burrell was already a renowned alt-country artist in Switzerland when they joined together to become Famous October. They tour all over the world, and often perform locally in and around DC.
