The idea of the itinerant bard is often romanticized in film and fiction, moving from town to town and singing for their supper. That’s the life singer-songwriter Savannah King chose when she gave up a rooted existence for one on the open road.

Several years ago, she quit her day job to fully dedicate herself to her music, leaving her hometown of Buffalo, New York.

Today, she lives out of her camper van with her boyfriend here in Arizona most of the year, the youngest snowbirds in the Valley.

King’s new album “Cliffrose” is available now.
