Up and coming musician Sansha is a music graduate who makes jazzy alternative pop. A singer-songwriter at heart, she has written over 40 songs and produces them into electronic tracks.
Live, she takes you through a whirlwind of emotions with her set on stage. Sansha has been described as a 'Victoria Wood meets Lilly Allen' hybrid who on the guitar, piano, synthesiser and launchpad delivers her unique original songs with a charismatic ease. Her lyrics are sharp, nostalgic and witty, catching you out with unexpected rhymes and sonorous tunes you won’t be able to stop singing afterwards. The musical style prevents the audience from getting cold feet as she takes you from ethereal electronic chill-out, to folky acoustic guitar laments, to hard rap tracks with a trumpet solo to cabaret style piano anthems. The content does not become stale either; Sansha is not afraid to cover taboo subjects and loves to shock her audience with her rebellious libretto.
Her lyrics are sharp, nostalgic and witty, catching you out with unexpected rhymes and sonorous tunes you won’t be able to stop singing afterwards. Her crafty song-writing and bell-like voice have got her tracks aired on the radio numerous times, including Track of the week, performances live on air and 4 other interviews on BBC three counties radio, BBC radio 6 and two airplays on BBC radio one.
