Centered on Sasha’s signature opulent soaring vocals, Lumiere is a diverse collection of original songs and unique reinterpretations of famous melodies. On her most personal album to date, Sasha compels the listener on an eclectic musical journey through themes of commitment, family, love, loss and redemption.
The Myth of Red
The Myth of Red is fusion of opera arias, Russian folk tunes, and art songs with beat-driven electronic soundscapes. The MOR features 13 tracks inspired by or based on Rachmaninoff (Awakening), Caccini (Ave Maria), Pergolesi (Stabat Mater) Saint-Saëns (The Forbidden Dance), and The Incubus by the notorious poet Charles Baudelaire. The production, programming, and keyboards of Frank Fitzpatrick and David Tobocman, and the lovely violin of Lili Hayden support the album beautifully. Delirium, Joey Moskowitz, and Dan Martinez contributed remixes.
Miles Away features 5 songs that will be on Sasha’s follow up to The Myth of Red. Sasha teamed with the extraordinary producing team Bliss to create the original songs Miles Away and Carnival. David Tobocman wrote the haunting Marigoldwhich Sasha recorded live with cellist Dave Eggar and pianist Emily Olin. Frank Fiztpatrick (producer of the Myth of Red) and Dave Schommer contributed their original take on Cyndi Lauper’s All Through the Night. L’amore E is a beautiful Italian ballad that features the haunting voice Philip Hamilton.
