South London singer-songwriter Sasha Keable is a graduate of the prestigious BRIT School, where she drew from the Latin influences of her mother’s Colombian heritage and the rock and soul sounds from her British father to help craft her raw, soulful sound.
After a four year hiatus, the soothing singer dropped her EP Man, featuring jazz and R&B-inspired tracks such as ‘Under Your Skin’. 2021 looks to be a big year for Sasha, and if her first single of the year – Exception – is anything to go by, then we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
