Since the release of The Best Thing in July 2020, the Rising Star NomOntario-based singer/songwriter has made a lasting impression north and south of the border with her signature blend of traditional and pop-country. Sacha has been featured as iHeart Radio’s ‘Future Star’, racked up adds on every Pure Country Radio Station in Canada, and on the highly influential, US-based Radio Disney with her latest single, ‘Standards’. Additionally, ‘Standards’ charted both the Top 50 Canadian Country Billboard and Top 40 Mediabase Canadian Country charts and boasts over 1million streams across digital platforms.
Recorded with CCMA Producer of the Year Nominee, Dan Swinimer and featuring songs penned by and in collaboration with songwriters including Tenille Townes, Madeline Merlo, Kelly Prescott, Mackenzie Porter, Emma Lee, and Karen Kosowski, The Best Thing is proving to be a well-deserved and hard-earned breakthrough for Sacha. As Swinimer himself puts it: “She’s singer/songwriter as talented she is fearless – with a heart as big as her epic voice.”
Following the premiere of the video for lead single ‘Cheers’ on ET Canada domestically, and worldwide on CMT, the EP has amassed over 1.6 Million streams across all platforms, led to Sacha being named one of CMT’s ‘Next Women of Country’ for 2021, and has been featured in major television, print and online music press outlets such as Music Row Magazine, American Songwriter, Rolling Stone Country, Billboard, and The Boot.
Both ‘Cheers’ and ‘Standards’ are songs that seem custom made for our times, imparting the message that no matter what challenges life tosses your way, embracing the everyday joys of living is the surest way to overcome them. That message is rooted as much in Sacha’s unfailingly positive outlook as it is in her experiences growing up in the tiny village of Warkworth, Ontario. With the rolling, rural hills of Ontario as a backdrop, and a family of musicians who ensured that music was a part of everyday life during home rehearsals, backyard bonfire parties, and gigs at the local Legion Hall, Sacha says: “Music contributed to my life in so many ways, it’s no wonder I chose it as a career.”
Currently, Sacha has taken up breaking records with Country music’s brother-sister duo The Reklaws and their recent release of “What The Truck” featuring Sacha. What started out as a viral Tik Tok sample of an unfinished song that The Reklaws posted, has just become the fastest Canadian Country song to reach 1M+ domestic streams during a one week period. The Duo originally asked their Tik Tok followers to write the next verse of the song and when they came across Sacha’s version, they knew she was the right fit to set this song on fire!
Sacha has no plans on putting the fire out anytime soon as she prepares to hit the Nashville North Stage in direct support of Dean Brody at Calgary Stampede. We can also anticipate a new single summer of 2021!
