Both Japanese and Chinese by blood, born and raised in Hong Kong, matured in London, and currently based in Vienna - sakura's music is crafted to tell her colorful and captivating stories through her own brand of lyrically and emotionally compelling, indie, folk, and rock.
Sakura's multifaceted approach to her music has given her a wealth of creative experience - at only 21 and fiercely independent, she has been self releasing music since her move to London at 18. From songwriting, to video production, to merch, Sakura has developed a distinct feeling to her art that is brought to fans with intention - her debut single 'Evolve' , holiday charity single 'December', and her latest release 'Lovesick' have all interwoven with her activism, and support for grassroots organisations. 'Lovesick' is available as a physical copy in Zine format - it was curated and created by Sakura and long time visual collaborator Richard Taylor (www.richardtaylor.london)
'Lovesick' has her fronting a five piece band, adding dimension and depth to her highly personal songwriting. She has been picked to support Indie Rock favourites Lucy Dacus, and Mitski this summer in Vienna, and she is set to release her follow up single 'What Am I Here For?' in October 2019.
