Sasha McVeigh was born to be on the stage. The British singer/songwriter has been singing from the moment she could talk and performing from the moment she could walk.
She garnered a love of country music from her father who, as she says “used to dance me around the coffee table to CMT” and her true flair for the genre came when she started writing songs at age 12.
Being from the UK, Sasha spent a lot of time traveling back and forth to Nashville when she finished school in 2012; honing her craft, building a catalogue of original songs and playing back to back shows.
“My parents have always been very supportive of my dream to pursue my music. I made a deal with my Mum when I was 14 that, as long as I did the best I could in my final exams, she would do whatever she could to help me navigate the music business.”
Sasha certainly wasted no time with getting her foot in the door early on. In 2014, she was asked to perform for The Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas, alongside Hunter Hayes and Cole Swindell. She has performed on the main stage at some of the biggest country music festivals in the US, including Country Stampede, Country Jam and Taste of Country Festival, with the likes of Eric Church, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.
Following the success of her last single, “When I’m Over You”, which independently garnered over half a million streams on Spotify, McVeigh has been hard at work in the studio finishing her latest, much-anticipated project.
“This record is incredibly important to me and it’s been a long time in the making. I didn’t want to rush any aspect of the process and I think that’s going to show when it’s released. It was entirely funded by the fans on Kickstarter, so I hope they’re proud of what’s been created.”
2019 is sure to be an exciting year for the British songstress, with festival dates already on the cards for the summer and her new record set for release in early spring.
“I can’t wait to get started on this next chapter and I feel very lucky for the journey so far. If I could go back and tell my five year-old self that one day I’d be living my dreams…I don’t think she’d believe just how much my dreams have come true.”
