SassyBlack is a space aged singer, songwriter & producer based in Seattle, Washington. This Goddess of “electronic psychedelic soul” & “hologram funk” explores the concepts of sound through deep compositions. With roots in classical & jazz, her voice is often compared to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Erykah Badu & Georgia Anne Muldrow.
Her production value and creativity is reminiscent of Roy Ayers, Pharrell & Herbie Hancock. Graduating with a Bachelors in Music from Cornish College of the Arts in 2008, Black has traveled the world performing in cities such as LA, Spain, Portugal, London, Brooklyn, Shanghai, Washington DC, Sydney & more.
You may also know Black from her group THEESatisfaction and her appearances on both Shabazz Palaces albums Black Up & Lese Majesty all released on Sub Pop Records. In the summer of 2015 she independently released her EP “Personal Sunlight“ which garnered attention from Okayplayer, Exclaim!, Afropunk, Pitchfork & more. Her debut solo album "No More Lame Dates" is set to be released spring 2016.
I typically perform my own compositions the majority of which can be found on my soundcloud page:
