In 2003 K's Choice decided to split ways for a while, with siblings Gert and Sarah exploring solo projects. Sarah made a mini-album of her own, called Go. Her first full-length solo album, Scream, was released in Europe on March 14, 2005, and in the USA on August 23, 2005. In March 2007 she released an EP through online music label Fuzz. Her second full-length album, Shine, including new mixes of the tracks from the Fuzz EP, was released in 2007. It was produced by Brad Wood. The full CD was distributed for free with the October 13 edition of the Flemish newspaper De Morgen in Belgium, which sold 180,000 copies. Normally this newspaper sells 95,000 copies.
Sarah has had a large lesbian fanbase since the beginning of her career with K's Choice, but it wasn't until may 2002 that she officially came out to the public. She discusses this on FaceCulture.nl, as well as on AfterEllen.com
There were plans to license the single Come Over Here from her LP Scream for episode 409 of the American series The L Word. However, the plans fell through due to problems involving the songs' co-writer and record label. The song also appears on the premier Music With a Twist compilation (Sony).
After having played Michigan's Womyn's Music Festival in 2006 solo, she organized an all female band for a performance in 2007.
Sarah currently lives in Tennessee, USA.
