For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!
My singles that are out are dance pop. These are remakes of originals, but I put my own feelings to them of course. They both want to make you get up and dance. My originals that are coming soon are very pop rock. I would say early 2000s meets 2022.
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
Probably that I can put my own thoughts out there but make it discrete with my songwriting. I would say the whole process is the best because I love to see how it turns out at the end of it all! The process is a work of art.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
It’s like being at home. I feel safe and I can let it all out. The recording studio is like another therapy session. It’s so good for me and my mental health.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I’m probably shopping on the phone with my best friend or sister for hours! Oh and still writing music. I literally never stop recording. I’m also practicing new makeup looks and doing TikTok’s.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
I admire so many artists. I definitely love Olivia Rodrigo she has done so much at a young age. I still love Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus) because her songs have gotten me through a lot and they’re so relatable and I love Katy Perry as well.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
The most emotional song I’ve written was about me beating cancer and that I just kept pushing during chemo. I thought what do I have to offer. But I say that I just kept doing what I loved and that got me through it. “I’m here for a reason /And my heart is still beating/ Cause when times get tough, I just keep getting up /Cause I’m here for a reason.” I’m going through something now, so I’ll be writing a song about it.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
I will soon be releasing my originals. Just working on promoting my new single “This is Your Night” and I’m working on my YouTube talk show series, The Vibe with Sasha Anne. I post once every 2 weeks.
Tell us where fans can access your music.
They can find my music anywhere! It’s on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, SoundCloud, YouTube, etc.
