Introducing: SASAMI

Check out the former Cherry Glazerr member, now going it alone.

Los Angeles based musician SASAMI released her hauntingly beautiful self-titled debut solo album in March 2019, a far cry from the riff driven music of her former indie-rock outfit Cherry Glazerr. The record spirals through ethereal sounds, teaming up with members of SASAMI’s (real name Sasami Ashworth) close-knit musical community for a truly immersive listen.

Who?

Los Angeles based multi-instrumentalist and serial collaborator Sasami Ashworth.

The sound

Musically complex yet hauntingly beautiful, her debut record showcases a deep understanding and passion for musical experimentation. From the fuzzed out punk of Not The Time to the electro leanings of the deeply introverted Turns Out I Was Everyone, through the gentle melancholy of At Hollywood, SASAMI captures the sun-kissed fog of her West Coast surroundings.

The story

Raised in a musical family, Ashworth picked up the French horn at an early age, and travelled the world as part of a youth orchestra. Enticed by Los Angeles’ burgeoning world of indie-rock, Sasami went on to form connections with other emerging stars including Haim and Empress Of. Building on her ever-growing network of musical collaborators, peers and friends, she joined guitar-driven outfit Cherry Glazerr. During her final tour with the band, Sasami penned her debut solo album with just a guitar. Now, she’s pulled it all together into full-time solo project filled with broken honesty.
