Sacha-Lee is from a very fertile part of Northern Ontario in Canada. Two hours northwest of Kirkland Lake, home of Alan Thicke, one hour north of Timmins, birthplace of Shania Twain and ½ an hour west of Cochrane, home of Tim Horton, the donut king. (note to our American readers - Canadians don’t measure distances by miles or kilometers but by hours. For example, Montreal is about five hours from Toronto. It’s how we roll.)

Sacha-Lee has a new single recently released to Canadian country radio, “Forever Thing” written by Sacha-Lee and Scott Sanford and and recorded in Nashville Tennessee.

It’s an excellent tune with a clean, robust production and well delivered vocals to a nicely written song.  All the ingredients for a hit.

We caught up with Sacha-Lee at her Smooth Rock Falls home to get the latest on life and career. “I’m really excited about this record and the way everything is lining up. Shelley Buffitt is taking care of  my career  and has arranged for me to represented by Entertainment Music Group out of Toronto who got me a global distribution deal with Believe Digital. I’m feeling really good about this positive direction we’re taking. I’ve always said ‘The music business is about connections and being true to yourself and your roots.”

My motto is “Music is created by faith and lives in family and friends.”

Sacha-Lee’s music is a mixture of Country, Rock, Blues and Pop, which reflects the different styles she was raised listening to, having been born into a family of musicians. She has been performing since the age of seven and is as comfortable on stage as she is sitting in her living room playing and singing. This makes everyone around her, bandmates and audiences comfortable as well and her smile and her boundless energy makes everyone feel like a part of the party.

Her first two albums “Sacha-Lee”’ (2008) and “The Music Made Me Do It” (2013) were recorded in Nashville and mastered by her husband and band leader Gaetan at his small studio in their hometown of Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario.

In November of 2014 Sacha-Lee was inducted into the Great Northern Opry via the Northern Ontario Country Music Association.“ Wow, what an honour that was. Such a humbling experience. “

Sacha Lee sums up her gratitude and heartfelt emotions with the following; “My greatest blessing has been my family, and music was just a part of our everyday living. My parents, siblings and extended family all played instruments and sang. I was fortunate to be born into this big "Family Band" as it gave me profound insights about togetherness and connections. It also provided me the confidence and encouragement to pursue what I know to be my purpose in life."

“Forever Thing” is a Country-Pop song about knowing when a love will last through the ages so call your local radio station and request this single. 
Allons  y Sacha Lee !
