American singer and keyboardist Sarah Barthel is one-half of the Greenwich, New York-based electronic music duo Phantogram (formerly Charlie Everywhere). Although she is a successful rocker in her own right, Shaun White, a professional snowboarder, and skateboarder who has won three Olympic gold medals, receives greater media attention because of their relationship. White is also a musician and plays guitar in the electronic rock band Bad Things. After the track “Fall in Love” from their second studio album “Voices” was released in 2014, her band gained popularity. Two further studio albums have so far been published by the group: “Eyelid Movies” (2010) and “Three” (2016). Eight singles and four EPs have also been released by them so far. They have supported artists like The xx, Muse, and The Glitch Mob by playing at important festivals across the country. She has frequently appeared with her band on NBC’s “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”
Become a Star
In the summer of 2007, Sarah Barthel returned home after feeling unsatisfied with her undergraduate degree in visual arts. Josh Carter, who attended the same preschool as her and later developed into her friend in junior high, was also returning home from a temporary assignment with Grand Habit in New York City at this time. Sarah joined his experimental band that he had started with his older brother, John, in order to assist Carter in finishing some of his earliest songwriting concepts. The two pals finally formalized their band under the moniker “Charlie Everywhere” and started playing live gigs close to Saratoga Springs. They quickly made the decision to concentrate on making music, and the local label Sub-Bombin Records published two EPs, “Charlie Everywhere EP 1 and 2.”
They changed the band’s name to “Phantogram” after signing a record deal with the UK label Barely Breaking Even on January 26, 2009, which was motivated by the eponymous optical illusion. The newly renamed group published its self-titled first EP via CE Records in May of that year, and later that year, BBE released its subsequent EP, “Running From the Cops.” On September 15, 2009, BBE released its debut album, “Eyelid Movies,” in Europe. On February 9, 2010, Barsuk released it in the US. Positive reviews helped the album reach No. 7 on the US Billboard Top Heatseekers chart. But the RIAA certified their second studio album, Voices, as Gold in September 2017, thanks to the single “Fall in Love” off that record. The album, which came out in February 2014, debuted at No. 3 on the list of Top Rock Albums and No. 11 on the Billboard 200.
Individual Life of Sarah Barthel
Bruce Barthel and Claire Demarest welcomed Sarah Demarest Barthel into the world on February 17, 1983 in Greenwich, New York. She had an older sister named Rebecca Claire Barthel, who took her own life in January 2016 following a protracted battle with depression. In an interview, Sarah, who regarded her sister as a hero, admitted that she can’t help but feel guilty about her passing. At Vermont’s Champlain College, she majored in visual arts.
Connection to Shaun White
In 2013, Sarah Barthel first met Olympian Shaun White backstage at a performance of “Saturday Night Live.” She was residing in Brooklyn at the time, while he was looking for an apartment in New York City. Following their chance encounter, they grew close friends before eventually falling in love. White is also into music, and according to him, she is an excellent snowboarder. They believe that the fact that they “live in two separate worlds” strengthens their relationship. The couple co-parents their gorgeous puppy Leroy Brown, who has his own Instagram account with 27.7k followers and his own goods available through her band’s web store. They reside together in the Los Angeles region. However, they are currently too preoccupied with their individual occupations to consider getting married.
Disputes and scandals of Sarah Barthel
In February 2018, Sarah Barthel became embroiled in a scandal when her boyfriend became the first snowboarder to win three gold medals at the Olympics. Referrals to the complaint Lena Zawaideh, the drummer for the Bad Things at the time, filed against him in August 2016 for sexual harassment and contract breach, have emerged on social media against the backdrop of the nationwide #MeToo movement. Despite his early denials, which he dismissed as “gossips,” the issue was ultimately resolved amicably in May 2017. Following the outrage, he recently expressed regret for his previous actions during an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show, despite criticism that the interviewer was too kind. She has, however, remained his staunchest supporter, praising him on social media in good times and bad.
