Singer-songwriter Sacha was born in Montreal but moved to the small town of Warkworth, Ont., with her family when she was just a toddler. She didn’t know then that the quaint rural setting would be a major influence behind her pursuit of country music years later. It was about 10 years ago that the musician decided to chase her dream career, and she knew there was a long road ahead. “I look back and I don’t know how I did it,” she says from Nashville, Tenn., where she now lives part-time. (When back in Canada, she lives in Oshawa, Ont.) “I remember looking up studios, finding the head contacts and just messaging them.” She discovered that Canadian musician advocacy group SOCAN has a house in the country-music mecca where you can stay for free if you’re a songwriter, so down south she went.
