It’s About Time We Give Sasha Keable Her Flowers

Even though she may be a new voice and face to some people, Sasha has been hustling in the UK music circuit for several years now, and it’s about time she is given her flowers.

Like many of the UK’s most respected artists, Sasha Keable is a graduate of the prolific BRIT School, which boast notable alumni such as “Adele, Leona Lewis, Katy B, Loyle Carner” and many more. After graduating she quickly went on to sign with “Tinie Tempah’s” management company Disturbing London, and then was snapped up by Polydor Records for a five-album deal. Through this deal she released two EP’s Black Book (2013) and Lemongrass and Limeleaves (2014).

Both these projects showed her love for the old school R&B and Soul genre while also combining it with her love for electronic music. In 2013, in between these projects, Sasha was contacted by “Disclosure” who asked her to be on their debut album Settle and sing on the song Voices. In the same year she also featured on the track Only for Tonight by “DJ Zinc”. 

Both these songs garnered her more attention and as a result Sasha was invited by “Katy B” to support her on her 2014 UK Tour. However, with all this new attention and hype around her name comes bigger demands and more pressure was put on her by her label. As a result of this, she parted ways with Polydor after the release of her Lemongrass and Limeleaves EP in 2014 and put her mental health first by stepping out of the industry to focus on herself.

Sasha spent around four years away from the spotlights and since returning, she has found a new love for the music as she is taking things in her own hand and doing things on her own terms. Her musical output really reflects this new direction as she is becoming a lot bolder and frank with her lyrics and is empowering herself with her own music while also empowering others. 

Upon her return, the scene welcomed her back with open arms and Sasha has gone on to support the likes of experimental group “Ezra Collective” and US rapper “Common” as well as collaborating with “Jorja Smith.” This new shift in mindset has allowed Sasha to create her best music yet so go and support this undeniable talent by streaming her new EP Intermission which is out now.
