Sasha Lazard is internationally acclaimed for her pristine and richly expressive soprano and her visionary artistry. Fearlessly heeding her inner directive as an interpreter of songs, she’s explored iconic traditional forms of iconoclastic modern music genres with authority and authenticity, and, in turn, innovated a new sound. Her musicality, mesmerizing performances, breathtaking sense of style, and associations with luxury brands, lend Sasha an aura of glamorous mystique. Four records in, and numerous shows worldwide, she’s at the height of her powers. For her fifth album, Lumiere, released in May 2014, Sasha has made the decision to peel back her public veneer and craft an elegantly personal album with her own original compositions. Several songs from Lumiere are featured in High Art/Full Circle. Sasha has collaborated with Pendulum since 2002, appearing in On the Fly (2003) and Crimson Cabaret (2005) as well as in the 2012 premiere and 2012 tour of High Art.
