With the vocal shimmer of Solange, the musical landscape of Quincy Jones and the attitude of Janelle Monae, SARAI is a pure injection of the freshest Soul Electro-Pop. Touching and re-touching songs in search of perfection, edging depth into a distinguished arrangement of vocal layers and soulful melodies, SARAI has developed her own signature sound. SARAI's journey of developing her artistic sense, honing her musicianship, production skills and message while preparing for the upcoming release of her new EP showcases a maturity and splendour that belies its debut nature. How does one stop a determined woman like this? The answer is simple. You can't.
For the majority of her life SARAI has been learning her craft and honing her skills. From humble roots leading school and church bands as a 12 year old in Coffs Harbour, performing and studying internationally, to self-producing her first body of work “Back To Love” at her home studio in Bondi, SARAI has been a leader on a musical journey.
018 was a huge year for SARAI with consistent single releases generating hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify, Apple Music and with placements in the Channel 10 series ‘Playing For Keeps’ and a Glassons online branding spot.
Keeping that buzz going into 2019, the talented singer-songwriter and dancer just can’t keep still working with artists like JVLY, YOMI TWICE and JUST A GENT. Prior to the release of her highly-anticipated EP, SARAI will release the energetic "STARXLOVERS" this Friday, exploring the question of commitment between lovers over time. This lead to her debut project "Mixtape", an ode to 'noughties' R&B and pop.
As her development continued, her confidence grew, and immediately after "Mixtape" came the anthem "Winner Represent." A determination to constantly improve brings us to this confident woman who knows exactly what her worth is (and won’t accept a cent less!) “Winner Represent” is the embodiment of self-love and belief, knowing you’re going to finish in first place because you’ve worked too hard to finish last. Winner’s win and SARAI doesn’t have time to lose!
