Tragic Sasha is the (rather apt) alias of British singer, writer, producer and all-round creative force Sasha Gurney. A true independent musician, Sasha moved to London at 18 to grow her own project and hasn't really looked back since. Her songs are a real message for these uncertain times, dealing with the insecurities of mid-20s millennial life, flaky friends, drunken parties and useless sadbois.
Her deft and blunt lyricism sits amongst a weave of throwback 00s-influenced contemporary pop production created with her musical muse and everyday inspiration Scott Colcombe (aka “scott is okay”), with her tongue-in-cheek sarcasm only just about kept in check. Her social media platforms meanwhile are a blissful collection of self-deprecating memes and exceptional video content, sprinkled all over with a heavy dose of realness.
The graft hasn't gone without notice, with Sasha amassing 3 million+ total streams across all platforms; plenty of plays from BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music; support from major tastemakers such as the Line of Best Fit and packed out headline shows in London. Sasha was picked by BBC Introducing as one of The Great Escape's 'First Fifty' for 2020.
