Her jazz recordings include releases from Peter Evans, María Grand, and Or Bareket. She’s performed live with Jason Moran, Ambrose Akinmusire, Kenny Barron, Terence Blanchard, Joel Ross, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Melanie Charles, and Marta Sanchez.

In 2019, Savannah was awarded the Harlem Stage Emerging Artist Award, and she received her master’s in jazz performance from Manhattan School of Music.

In October of 2021, she debuted her solo piece “With Inner Sound, Truth” commissioned by Issue Project Room as a tribute to composer Ruth Anderson.
