Sasha Mercedes

Sasha Mercedes is a vocal powerhouse. She writes and performs music that will make you think, break your heart and kick you in the gut all at onceā€¦ leaving you gasping for air and begging for more. She writes songs whose honesty and substance are easy to relate to and she sings them with passion and conviction, which make her performances nothing short of riveting.

Originally hailing from the shores of Lake Superior, she now calls Minneapolis/St. Paul home. She has traveled from coast to coast and abroad, performing and drawing inspiration out of every experience, which make for the material in her brilliantly crafted compositions. She has shared the stage with Dar Williams, Tracy Bonham, Guy Davis, Pete Seeger, and many others as she wanders… making new friends and fans along her colorful journey.

Mercedes has released 5 solo albums, and is currently in the pre-production stages of her next two releases. First, a solo-acoustic record at the request of friends and fans and second, a hip hop/pop/electronic delight that shows how Mercedes’ music can be cross-platformed to fit into just about any genre. These surprisingly tasty and refreshing sonic morsels can be yours next June. Stay tuned for little audio teases and more info as the project unfolds… Soundcloud me.
