GSX

Sarah Greenwood is a songwriter and performer, born in Switzerland to British transplants. Sarah formed her first band and wrote her first song at age thirteen. Rebel and misfit, Sarah left for Boston after high school to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where she was the recipient of multiple Professional Writing Division Awards for Songwriting.

In Boston, Sarah’s eponymous band quickly gained acclaim from the press and notoriety in the local music scene. The Boston Phoenix wrote: “Greenwood has a knack for transforming pain and anger into edgy songs which alternately smolder and blaze with the eloquently pissed off attitude of Chrissie Hynde. Her lyrics are reminiscent of Lou Reed and Patti Smith.” Reviewing the band’s performance, the Boston Herald wrote: “sounds like PJ Harvey without the overblown angst.”

After graduation, Sarah moved to New York City. Her band, now called GSX, known for its fiery live performances and with a solid record under its belt (“Manifest”), soon worked itself up to headliner billing, including at the notorious CBGB’s. CMJ wrote: “Angst rocker may be classically trained, but the ballsy head-banging spirit of Joan Jett rattles in her bones.”

The GSX music videos “Bringin’ Me Down” and “I Got What I Came For” directed by Katrina del Mar were in rotation for four weeks on LOGO' Click List (MTV Networks). The LOGO channel was available in an estimated 35 million homes.

In addition to national performances (including opening for Joan Jett at CBGB’s), GSX has also performed internationally, notably to a crowd of 50,000 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

During the fall of 2023, GSX had four songs in rotation on SiriusXm Little Steven’s Underground Garage (Channel 21) on both Genya Ravan and Palmyra Delran’s shows.
