Strange Behaviour with nacoa and Sacha Vee & Arii Jade

89 Lichfield St
Strange & Co

There’s a few things we’re best known for, the most important being our strange, odd, but generally pleasant behaviour. It’s that type of behaviour we’re keen on bringing out every month, so when the sun goes down, the shadows take over the streets and the sounds of the city grow quiet, our lane pumps out music.

Strange Behaviour is our new monthly night that showcases an amazing selection of musical talent from New Zealand and further afield. Free, as per usual.

Our 1st installment brings you an all female affair with Sacha Vee & Arii Jade.

Sacha Vee – Amsterdam/New Zealand / BBE Records UK

New Zealand born singer, SACHA VEE began performing from an early age. Her talent as a vocalist was recognised at the age of 16 when she was awarded “Best Jazz Vocalist” at the New Zealand National Jazz & Blues Festival. Known for a “voice beyond her years”, Sacha’s majestic voice and songwriting skills are now sought after for collaborations all over the world.

As well as her own debut self-titled EP released in 2011 by Sweet Soul Records, Japan, project highlights have included working with K+Lab(NZ), State of Mind(NZ), Benny Tones (NZ), I.N.T(NL) & Killing Skills (NL). The most successful collaboration to date has been with Polish Hip hop legend O.S.T.R, with whom she has three hit singles, two Double Platinum albums, had over 15million views on youtube and just finished a sold-out album release tour.

Currently based in Amsterdam, but back for a New Zealand Summer, Sacha has been working with Dutch producers Killing Skills and Chef Red to create her latest body of work which blends the earthy roots of Jazz & Soul with the raw elements of hip hop & electronic pop onto a brand new EP “Rising One”. Showing off her incredible range and sense of sass, this new release is an impressive taste of what’s to come.

With a voice that falls effortlessly somewhere between Erykah Badu & Joss Stone and the determination to be heard on a global scale, make no mistake her entrancing sound will leave you stilted in your tracks.

“Mary J Blige was my all time favourite singer, until I heard Sacha’s voice…” O.S.T.R (Asfalt Records)

“When I DJ, there’s a moment. When the people feel the rhythm, they’re singing every word as if they’re singing to me. There’s complete balance and embrace to be at one with the sound as if I’m not even there, but I am. That’s happiness for me.”
