“‘Fading’ talks about the feeling of being obsessed, of neglecting oneself to the point of disappearing and losing one’s identity” – Sara
Sara started playing the piano at five years old and became passionate about songwriting and composition during her teenage years. “After graduating in classical piano, I realised performing my own music and singing was more exciting for me than playing other composers’ works.” Her interest in composition led her to the UK and the USA, where she also studied film scoring and conducting after influences such as Hans Zimmer and Ennio Morricone. In 2021, she decided to pursue a career in songwriting and released her debut single ‘Serendipity’, featured on BBC and prized in Italy, and ‘15 Again’, also featured as one of the weekly Earworms on BBC and winner of the Press Prize at the Italian national music competition ‘Il Cantagiro’. “Even though I chose another path, classical music helped me develop musical thinking and composition methods that I can now use in my own works. In ‘Fading’ the feeling of obsession and despair is conveyed through repeated words and motifs that seem to deteriorate throughout the song” says Sara. Inspired by artists such as Björk, Thom Yorke, Diana Krall and Agnes Obel, she is working towards the release of her next EP. She is active as a pianist and singer/songwriter and is studying conducting in London.
