Sasha Yatchenko started singing and writing at a very young age while living in South Boston, MA. Her keen sensitivity to the world around her came through in beautiful melodies and lyrics that touched those who had the pleasure of hearing her perform.
By the time Sasha was 12 years old she had accumulated a good amount of original material and was introduced to producer, Ken Hickey, from the Boston band O Positive. Over the course of the next year, she was able to record six of her original tunes on her debut EP, Wednesday Night Sessions, which was released in January, 2009. In 2010 Sasha began collaborating with producer Jorge Corante of Los Angeles based Urban Authentic. With Jorge's production and guidance, Sasha earned her first movie song credit in the independent film Adultolescence with her original tune "Far Away".
