Sasha Berliner is a 17-year-old musician, composer, producer, and band leader from San Francisco, CA.
Sasha's early influences were rooted in classic and alternative rock, old school hip hop, and funk music, which later grew to encompass jazz and R&B. She started playing drums at eight years old, and went on to study piano and vibraphone when she was 13. In her early music years, she gained a foundation in group dynamics, song writing, live performance, and ear training from extracurricular music programs School of Rock and San Francisco Rock Project. Her high school, Oakland School for the Arts, helped cultivate the melodic, improvisational, and advanced theoretical skills she developed in her later years.
Sasha has been composing since the age of 11, and has continued to extend her composition and arrangement abilities for full band performances. She has performed at such venues as the Fox Theater in Oakland, Great American Music Hall, Treasure Island Music Festival, Davies Symphony Hall, the SF Jazz Miner Auditorium, and more. She is still continuing to grow and work as a multi-faceted musician, and looks forward to influencing the world around her as an intelligent young woman in her field. Her EP "Gold," recorded at Fantasy Studios, is her debut mini-album, exhibiting the range of her many musical influences through her distinctive sound and live band arrangement.
