SAYAH is a singer-songwriter from Sydney with electro-soul flavours and self confessional lyrics. Her dark, lush vocals draw comparisons to Banks with a touch of Jorja Smith, yet it’s hard to miss the soul and stylings of Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse.
SAYAH’s debut single ‘Addicts’ quickly shot to #1 on the Triple J Unearthed Pop Chart within days of being uploaded. Since then, she has played to a growing audience of converts around Sydney, including recently opening for Woodes and Triple J darling Ruel. Her appearance on Balcony TV won International viewers’ choice on their “Show of the Week”.
‘Drama Queen’ is the second track off her new body of work. SAYAH says about the song, “I became so used to conflict that when I was happy I thought something was wrong, so I’d self-sabotage. That’s when I realised I was being a bit of a drama queen”.
SAYAH’s unique vocal stylings have been praised by the likes of Dave Ruby Howe (Triple J) – “I reckon people would pull their cars over to hear that voice in full flight.”
Produced by Xavier Dunn (Jack River, Graace, Cxloe, Peking Duk) and mixed by
Steven Schram (Mojo Juju, San Cisco), Drama Queen is out February 22nd ,the week before Mardi Gras.
