G,NA began as a series of demos recorded on cassette tape, deep in the coldest winter months of 2003 in Wisconsin. The recording project was the brainchild of Sarah Saturday, and was never supposed to leave those tapes. After the demise of her punk band in 2005, Sarah began reworking the demos, and released a four-song EP in 2007 under the name Gardening, Not Architecture, which would eventually be shortened to G,NA. The songs began to circulate online, and soon there was pressure for Sarah to perform live. In 2008, she played the first two G,NA shows in Los Angeles. In 2009, she booked her first solo tour, performing with a bass guitar, backing tracks, and a homemade LED light wall. In the early summer of 2009, she recorded the first full-length album, First LP. By the end of that year, she was touring full-time. Between 2009 and 2012, Sarah played nearly 300 shows as G,NA, touring the United States and Canada multiple times including two months on a side stage of the Warped Tour in 2010. In 2011, she released her second album, Saboteur, with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign. After relocating to Nashville in 2012, Sarah began shifting her focus from touring to building relationships within Nashville’s budding and diverse art community. In 2015, after her longest hiatus since her first release, she produced and released her third album, Fossils, as both an album and feature-length film, to critical acclaim. In 2016, she composed her first film score for the indie feature film Superpowerless, and finished the two-year album cycle for Fossils with two special music-to-film performances in Nashville at Queen Ave Art Collective. In 2017, she focused on scoring music for film and TV with producer Eric Hillman of Foreign Fields, contributing music to shows on the Discovery and History channels. In 2018, she teamed up with Hillman to produce a new G,NA single, Absence of Me, which is set to be released along with a new music video in April of 2019.
