February 17, 2023– Singer-songwriter Sasha Atlas is thrilled to release her new EP On Fire that is out now.
Sasha says, “’On Fire is my debut EP. Most of the songs were conceived in quarantine in New York City, and reflect the identity crisis i went through while forced to spend extended time with myself. The record roams between genres with pop, rock, and electronic influences and explores her relationship with my changing values and the difficulty of following one’s passions in an increasingly unstable world.”
Sasha is a recording artist from New York City. A musician, writer, and financier, she has lived many lives. From sneaking into underground music venues in Bushwick as a teen, to doing deals with Wall Street’s hungriest wolves, to spending months in lockdown through curfews and unrest, Sasha has been every iteration of the city. She strongly believes in blending genres, resulting in an alternative sound that draws from numerous genres including classic pop and rock, metal, singer-songwriter, and electronic music. Her influences are diverse, and include Rina Sawayama, Evanescence, The Pretty Reckless, Kate Bush, Muse, Lilith Czar, and many more.
Sasha has been involved in the NYC music scene since she was a teenager. She performed in her first off-broadway musical when she was just 13. She attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she studied theater and voice. Before graduation, she accidentally had drinks with someone who offered her a job working as an investment manager at a Fortune 500 company on Wall Street. By age 24, she is managing over $15 billion dollars in assets, and composing music on the side.
In 2022, her second release, “More Than Anyone,” was accepted by The Recording Academy for contention for a GRAMMY® award for “Best Pop Solo Performance.”
Sasha has collected stories that have shaped an intense world view. Her alternative pop music is opinionated and bold, but betrays a sensitive soul that longs for resolutions.
