  • For singer Kinsey Sadler, who will perform at 9 p.m. Saturday at Twisters Night Club, visiting Pittsburg is going back to  her roots.
    Her father, Victor Seidler, grew up here, and her late grandfather Migdonio Seidler was a prominent architect whose  projects included Pittsburg High School, not to mention Fort Scott High School and St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Arma.
    “I have a lot of family ties in Pittsburg, and I was there about a month ago at KKOW Radio,” said the young singer, who has adopted the stage name of Sadler, during a telephone interview. “The people at KKOW are amazing.”
    Her father served in the military for 22 years, which meant a lot of moving for  the family.
    “I know what it’s like to be a military brat,” Sadler said.
    She graduated from high school in Ardmore, Okla., and has been in the Tulsa area since 2007.
    “I’ve been singing since I was little, and got a band going, ‘Kinsey and Company,’ in 2010,” she said.
    But Sadler also made education a priority and managed to juggle performing in Tulsa area bars with her nursing studies at the University of Oklahoma. She graduated with a bachelor of science in nursing in 2011.
    “That basically allowed me to expand my music career after I graduated,” Sadler said.
    It was only about 30 days after her graduation that Nashville talent scout Ronnie Bishop saw her performing at a local casino. She accepted an invitation to visit Nashville and met some producers and record executives. Then, a few days after she went back home, producer Johnny Morris of Evergreen Records called her back to cut a demo track.
    Those tracks were mastered and became the first three songs on her first EP, “Purple Mountain’s Majesty,” which was released in April. One of them, “Sometimes I Forget,” was released as her first single at the end of 2011 on the Motion/Spinville label and charted on the Nashville Music Industry’s Music Row Breakout charts.
    Sadler said the single has gotten good air play on KKOW.
    “I’ve got  two new songs coming out now,” she said. “I’ve got lots of original music. I’m working with some amazing songwriters and I got to do some songwriting on occasion.”
    Sadler also sometimes performs covers of songs from artists like Miranda Lambert. She enjoys listening to all kinds of music, including “Heart” and “Guns N’ Roses,” and sometimes those influences find their way into her singing.
    “I love country music and can’t imagine doing anything else,” she said, “but we need to give it a little flair.”
    Sadler has done several benefits for the Blue Star Mothers, an organization that mails care packages to those in the military who are serving overseas. She was also a featured performer in the Patriot Golf Day festivities at Shangri-La in the Grand Lake area, which raised funds for families of those killed or injured overseas.

    “Without them, we couldn’t enjoy the things we’re able to do,” she said. “My mom is a juvenile diabetic, so I also like to do things to benefit that cause. We’re definitely all about philanthropy.”
    Sadler’s music is available on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and many other e-music web sites.
