Best singer/songwriter 2013: Sarah White

Sarah White

Travis Elliott

A Charlottesville native, Sarah White’s got staying power. She started her career in the late ’90s, released her first studio album in 2000, another in 2006, won “Best Song” in a 2007 contest for “Sweetheart,” which became the title track for an EP she re-released this year before becoming the front woman for local rock-pop-honky-tonk band, Josephine. If all that doesn’t earn her the No. 1 spot again this year, we don’t know what does. Travis Elliott strums into the runner-up spot with gigs at Fellini’s on Thursday nights.
