Singer/songwriter sahara began her musical journey at the age of 16 when writing lyrics and poems became a natural way for her to express unfamiliar emotions. Coming to the realization that she was in fact, very gay (!), was a challenging chapter to navigate, but ultimately led her to discover her talents. Years later, after moving from her hometown of Coquitlam, British Columbia to Toronto, Ontario, sahara wrote and released her debut single, “LVOE”. Following the release, she found herself with opportunities to write music for a number of established artists around the globe. The proud LGBTQ artist has lots more in store for her listeners as she continues to turn her personal life stories into powerful music.
This Jersey girl with Brazilian roots was only three years old when her father gave her the gift that would forever change her life, a guitar. Although she did not know it yet, that moment became the catalyst for her passion for music. Her parents recognized the raw talent in her and immediately signed her up for music lessons, which exposed her to many genres that would later influence her as a singer/songwriter and musician.
She has shared the stage with Erben Perez and Mario Sebatian (Marc Anthony and JLo band), Brazilian artists Fagner, and Claudia Leitte, Hanan Rubinstein (Alicia Keys and Rita Ora’s band), and T.S. Monk (Thelonious Monk’s son), among others.
