SANITY is known for encapsulating a distinctive blend of hip-hop, jazz and soul. Her sharp commentary has a fearless instinct, expertly balancing smoothness, and potency with each line, while navigating current themes from empowerment to self-examination. Since her first festival performance at the renowned Glastonbury, the artist has captivated global audiences, showcasing her music to over 1 billion people at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony in Australia (2018).

SANITY's ascent as one of the most exciting voices in UK Rap is no surprise, from the elegant delivery of her performance with BBC Symphony Orchestra (Beyond The Bricks Of Brum, 2022) to boldly opening for legendary artist Yasiin Bey/Mos Def (Troxy London, 2022).

SANITY's debut project “Bruises To Blossoms”(2023), continues to place her front and centre amongst a new wave of artists embracing fluidity and dismantling categories. Powerful messages backed by jazzy and soulful instrumentals, with production from Grammy Award Winners Blue Lab Beats and collaborations with artists such as hip-hop heavyweight Kofi Stone and Jazz FM nominee Camilla George.
