sadie is a Brooklyn-based producer and songwriter. Her debut EP, Nowhere, was released in June ‘22 to critical acclaim, featured and praised by The New York Times, Fader, Stereogum, Gorilla vs. Bear, and Nylon, and she was subsequently named “Best New Artist” by Pigeons and Planes. Her melancholic pop songs are filled with catchy autotune hooks that float above her spacious production. Drawing from elements of hyperpop, her songs are speckled with bright, plucky synths, and distorted basses.

Classically trained on the piano from the age of 5, sadie began using Ableton to experiment with production in her last year of college, heavily influenced by the compilations and releases from the UK collective PC Music. Inspired most by those pushing the boundaries of pop, her biggest influences range from the likes of Charli XCX, AG Cook, SOPHIE, Bladee, Bjork, and Kate Bush.
