A Little bit about Sacha...

A local native of San Diego, Sacha Boutros has been captivating audiences with her sultry vocals and exquisite style as she posses a charm and grace reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood. Having played the piano since she was a little girl, she began composing at an early age. As a child she was introduced to musical harmonies and playful lyrical songwriting by her grandfather; "He taught me to sing the harmonies in church and I later sang in the choir and show choir growing up. My grandmother was the one who introduced me to the piano, she started me with piano lessons when I was 4, I had to sit on a pillow to reach the keys." With a four-octave range she is well versed in classical music and can sing in just about any language as she speaks five fluently. "I learned how to sing Bel Canto. I decided when I was going to learn how to sing properly I should start from the beginning, with opera! I studied Bel Canto for several years and sang many Broadway scores as I perform musical theatre as well."

"I really started singing in my last year of college. I was an athlete and played soccer and tennis which was what put me through school on scholarship, I had a scholarship not only athletics but academics as well." In 2002, shortly after graduating with a BBA from the University of San Diego, she was introduced by the legendary Frankie Laine at his 90th birthday celebration as his Ingenue where she played with his orchestra along side greats such as Herb Jeffries and Mundell Lowe. "Every time I saw Frankie he used to say to me, 'Kid if I were young I would take you on the road, you got what it takes to make it!' I always thought that was so fabulous to hear, you know he was in his 90's, one thing I did get to do was get to know him, he was a living legend and so much fun to be around. He was a great bowler, he beat me, couldn't win against the rawhide king."

Of Mexican and Lebanese heritage Sacha Boutros has been recording, writing and performing Jazz both nationally and internationally.

Album Liner Notes by Karrin Allyson

When first putting on an album of a new singer— or any singer for that matter, I must admit— I hold my breath for a minute really hoping that this singer can SING! (this goes for my own recordings too, even to this day!) It's a huge relief when that recording lets you (the listener) sit back and enjoy the voice and not be on the edge of your seat with worries about intonation (singing on/off key) and even better— feeling heart and soul come through right away. BRAVA Sacha! For letting me hear and feel this real enjoyment in your recording—your debut! Which is hard to believe because although it is your first, it sounds very mature and assured. And I love that you've included some of your own original material and lyrics- —lovely, also using what you know and who you are; singing very convincingly in spanish, italian, portugese, french... I love the international quality. The band is first-rate— very solid, soulful and swinging, no surprise there, with this wonderful line up of players. I really love this abum because first of all, she can SING and it is Sacha coming through—- as her own unique self and voice with heart and soul shining through.
