Hot Artist Alert

17 – 03 – 2021


Vocal group Säje are HOT🔥 after their track ‘Desert Song’ was added to Spotify’s Soft + Slow playlist. Since being added to the 300k follower playlist, which features quiet acoustic and folk tracks, Säje’s Spotify followers have increased by 7%.

The GRAMMY® nominated vocal supergroup, säje (rhymes with “beige”), is the brainchild of vocalist/composers Sara Gazarek, Amanda Taylor, Johnaye Kendrick, and Erin Bentlage. Born out of close friendship and incredibly deep admiration, these world-renowned artists, composers, and arrangers have come together to explore, create, and celebrate the music that moves them. As individuals, each artist has crafted their own notable solo career, and now are delighted to bring their collective voices to this union, traversing a vast array of compelling original material, beloved jazz standards, and contemporary re-imaginings (Alina Engibaryan, YEBBA, Johnny Cash, etc).

After debuting an inspiring and energized set at the 2020 Jazz Education Network Conference in New Orleans this last January, säje went on to tour multiple jazz festivals from January to March, ending in a three-night residency at Sam First in Los Angeles. säje received their first GRAMMY® nomination in November of 2020, for their first composition “Desert Song” in the Best Arrangement Instruments and Vocals category. The union of säje is rooted in the tradition of joy, curiosity, lush harmony, heart-felt expression, and profound sisterhood.
