Sascha Osborn is a London based singer songwriter of reflective tender songs, who blends her cocktail of influences seamlessly dancing between ‘folk’ and ‘jazz’ worlds, utilising these colours to express narratives of relationships and evocations of life experience.
Passionate about music and singing for as long as she can remember Sascha grew up to the sounds of Maria Callas, Jacqueline Du Pre, Benjamin Britten, Billie Holiday, Buddy Holly and BBC Radio 2’s Sounds of the 60’s. Moving to Sheffield in 1991, she discovered a world of folk music, electronica and neo-soul and for a few years sang in a local band and worked with various musicians and producers on a range of projects.
The Gillies are an Americana influenced acoustic folk duo, writing haunting songs of love and loss ….. featuring Susan Turner (vocals, tenor guitar), and Mark (Gilly) Evans (guitar, dobro)
“Music for your graveside” is one way London-based Americana-folk duo The Gillies describe their songs. True, there’s darkness in there but the graveside is also a place to reflect on life, love, loss and the moments of lightness and joy that confirm our existence, and The Gillies can convey all that in just one song.
