With great success, they have supported Marc Almond on his ‘Hits and Pieces’ tour playing venues like Camden’s Roundhouse.

The boys had worked together in previous projects and decided it was time for something new. Alex sold his drums at the start of the pandemic to build a home studio and together they started writing, producing and experimenting.
Towards the end of the summer they met Imi, who had been writing and recording vocals for various producers over the last few years. Her vocal style added the final ingredient to the sound, bringing both an energy and a calmness to the music.

Inspired by many genres and artists ranging from John Mayer to Coldplay to Chloe x Halle to PJ Morton, you can expect to hear different styles when listening to a Sacha T record.
Sacha T is also an advocate for Mental Health and Music, taking part in discussions with organisations such as “Music for Youth”, that encourage young musicians to look after their mental being.
