Bio

Blending whip-fast verbal gymnastics with stuck-in-your-head pop riffs, Sabrina Soares’ debut 2016 EP ‘Plan A’ is a hooky, hip-swivelling nod to jazz, country, pop and the funky Brazilian rhythms that colour her unique heritage. Born to Brazilian parents in Sydney, Australia, Sabrina grew up singing bossa nova with her dad before starting to write her own songs at age 13.
 
Mixing sincere and relatable diary-entry style lyrics with exceptional self-taught guitar playing, Sabrina turned to music full-time after graduating high school; abandoning all considerations of a university education in order to be an active participant in the Sydney music scene.
 
Within 2-years, her music gradually veered stylistically, incorporating more sounds of R&B influenced by artists such as Lauryn Hill, Musiq Soulchild, Jhene Aiko, Drake, among others.
 
Now, a new comer to Canada, Sabrina has moved to Toronto for the next stage of her career, which includes recording her next album.
 
She’s only got a Plan A: she’s all in, and you will be too.
