Sara Azriel

"Romantically heavy and elusive as moonlight, Sara Azriel’s music defies boundaries, brightens the heart, and casts light on a young woman painfully in love with the world around her.”  (Eric Smith, Providence Monthly)

Sara Azriel is an eclectic songwriter whose music combines the universality of pop, the sincerity of folk, and the richness of soul music.  She displays an emotionalism in her vocal performance that is known for inducing tears and shivers.

Born and raised on the shores of Lake Michigan into a large musical family, Sara Azriel has criss-crossed the country pursuing her music. "I've always been a bit of a lone wolf." she says. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, Azriel moved to Los Angeles, playing venues such as Hotel Cafe and the Knitting Factory and teaching piano and voice lessons to celebrities and industry families.

Now based in Providence, Rhode Island, Sara is writing her first full-length record and directing a songwriting program for at-risk youth. 

Her self-titled EP released in 2013 was mixed by Grammy-Award winning mix engineer James M. Wisner (Amy Winehouse, Justin Timberlake) and includes musical, writing and production contributions from Davy Nathan (Christina Aguilara, Toni Braxton), and Andrew ‘Moon’ Bain (Snoop Dogg, Major Lazer).
