The Band

The primary home of Sarah Grain & the Billions of Stars is Ark Barn Studio, home of Ryan Koch's Ark Barn Productions and his family's farm. The backdrop of their music is big sky ... and billions of stars.


It was here that their story began with Sarah Grain's 2010 album 'Terrain', a collaboration with Koch and bassist Nate Gray.  Four years later, and joined by guitarist Doug Sauter and pianist/vocalist Mina Keohane, they quickly established their sound in the Indianapolis music community, and grew an impressive repertoire of original songs.
