Saphron is a British artist of Sri-Lankan decent. She was born and raised in London. It’s hard to place the genre of her music as it draws from so many different influences.
She has a fresh sound influenced no doubt, by her lifetime of exposure to diverse music and culture. Saphron is bringing back story-telling as a creative expression in music. Songs like “Heart For a Spade” has great word play and “Only Thing Keeping Me Here” is a lovely heartfelt song.
In her own words about her sound, style and gumption she says,
“It’s quite country/folk, to be honest, with a little twist at the end. I guess I just stumbled upon this style and it seemed fitting. Country music is renowned for telling good stories whilst mixing in raw emotion. I guess that’s just the season I’m stepping into. It’s a shedding of skin almost. I’ve wanted to do my own music for so long but never quite found the confidence to do so; this is my season to say ‘NO’ to fear and just get on with it!”
Songs give us a glimpse into a persons emotions and substance, and from what I have heard so far I cant wait to hear and see more of Saphron’s work.
