Performing for the third time at the Seagull theatre, Saskia is a 24 year old independent English singer-songwriter, known for her pure, clear voice and her nu-folk style repertoire. Previously one of the worlds youngest craniosacral therapists, and practicing on Harley Street, London, in 2014 she left it all behind to move to the West country and pursue a successful career in music.
She has since released three E.P.’s (Gentle Heart Collection, The Presence E.P., and Night and Day E.P.), crowdfunded her debut album ‘Gentle Heart’, and in 2016, won a substantial arts council grant to tour it nationwide, garnering attention in regional and national media. She has supported some big names such as Sally Barker and performed sell out concerts in both large and small venues across South England.
Frequently compared to Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and Eva Cassidy for her extraordinary vocal tone, Saskia’s original songs draw on the genre’s of Americana, roots & darker folk music.
After being interviewed on BBC Radio (BBCGlos and BBCrb), reviewed in online blogs (Folk-Phenomena, Jelli Records), magazines (The Living Tradition, What’s Afoot Magazine) and featured in papers from Gloucestershire to Norfolk, this young singer-songwriter is leaving a powerful and lasting impression on industry professionals and fans alike.
To date she has been number 1 in Reverbnation’s folk chart for Bristol since August 2015, and was recently nominated for Laurel Canyon Music’s Favourite New Artist of 2016 (ranking #7 over all) and Best New Album Of The Year.
2017 will see her releasing and touring a second album, supporting names such as the Black Feathers, Julie Felix and Steve Knightley, and making her first tours abroad in California and Germany.
