Sara Boy grew up in South-East Asia but is of French origin. During her high school years, she joined a local choir and discovered the Allegri’s Miserere and the power of Gregorian chants, while constantly listening to soul, folk and RnB singer-songwriters. She still draws on this classical repertoire in her songwriting, as her melodies involve multiple vocal layerings and harmonies, giving them an ethereal almost spiritual feel.
Sara Boy released her first EP in 2018 where she poetically speaks about belonging or the lack of it in a globalised world. Showcased on Beehype’s Best tracks of 2018 from the Middle East compilation, Sara Boy finds inspiration in her past and current peregrinations between the East and West.
After her time spent in the Middle East, Sara Boy is now based in Paris and is currently working on her new EP.
