She's not technically a wunderkind — but she's darn close. Sarah Jarosz released her debut album Songs Up In Her Head at the tender age of 18 on Sugar Hill Records. That might technically cut her off from child prodigy status, but the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist had been playing the festival circuit since the age of 10. Though she's still not old enough to order a beer, her new album Follow Me Down shows a new maturity for the artist. We can't wait to see how good she is when she's actually legal.

She's tight with Béla. And Chris Thile, Gillian Welch, and Dan Tyminski, among many others. All big names in the acoustic roots community, these artists stepped up to contribute their skills to Jarosz's new album. With those kind of mentors, she can't help but accomplish great things with her career.

Prove you're not a fool: stay in school. Rather than surf by on the success of her debut, the young songbird opted to take a more traditional route. She's currently halfway through earning a bachelor's of music at the New England Conservatory of Music.
