Sacha Vee is a unique vocalist making waves in the New Zealand music scene. The gutsy sound emerging from the blonde 25 year old is that of the classic black soul divas of the day, being commonly likened to Jill Scott and Alice Russell.
“Her distinctive style is a mix of old school soul, funk and jazz delivered with a boisterous sensuality and cheekiness” – Vicki Anderson, The Press
“Such talent… it’s hard to imagine why she won’t be snapped up soon.” – Alice Cowdry, The Nelson Mail

“Having recently released her debut self-titled EP and toured the country, she is gaining recognition for her versatility and polish… The album was co-produced by herself and Oakley Grenell, and Wellington’s Benny Tones did the mixing – it’s indicative of her talent that she’s garnered the respect of these gifted guys.

With her Dutch/West Indian background, Sacha was surrounded by music from an early age. Her talent was discovered at the age of 16 when she was awarded ‘Best Vocalist’ at the much-respected National Jazz Festival. Since then she has been making her presence known, performing at some of the best music festivals nationwide. Sacha has also opened for some of the most well known musicians in the NZ scene, e.g. the likes of Shapeshifter and Hollie Smith. She has also collaborated with household names such as Pacific Heights and most recently Benny Tones, ‘Chrysalis’
