ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“I experienced a harrowing descent on this album,” Sacha Sacket confesses on his sophomore work, Shadowed (2004). “I felt it was time to delve into ‘dark things,’ go places where I degraded myself, where I was a doormat, where I would destroy someone if I could. Not in an attempt to immediately rectify or justify myself, just to express it. I had to be damaged, to have faults, to show the darkness.”

What is perhaps most surprising with Shadowed, however, is its stunning beauty and persistent faith. This is not an album thrust in a mire of self-defeat. Baroque-like strings flow into an electronic soundscape with dramatic sensitivity. Acoustic instruments fuse seamlessly with electronic, resulting in an entirely ethereal vision. The album creates a lush, sumptuous, almost underwater world. “I discovered failing doesn’t necessarily equate flailing,” Sacket smirks. “In a way, Shadowed redefined my vision of what ‘hell’ could be. I found a deep romance, a beautiful vulnerability, a world awash with moonlight. In all my struggles, I found an incredible peace and quietude, a powerful sense of faith and purity. In reality, it is the most difficult times when we discover how strong and resilient we truly are. Where we are actually renewed.”

Sacket’s music is not one for easy comparison. His remarkable and plaintive sensitivity conjures thoughts of a post-millennial Nick Drake, while a beautiful, textured piano recalls his classical past – a young obsession with Beethoven. His talent, however, is undeniable. Armed with a unique and powerful voice, which is perhaps his greatest asset, Sacket grabs your heart and never fails to deliver.

The song “Kite High!” could easily be a radio staple for disenfranchised youth in need of a shining light. “It really came out of one of my lowest lows,” Sacket reveals. “I was at this point of feeling like a complete failure in life, in everything I was doing. I was far from finishing the album. I was completely useless in every sense. It was about that time that I began surfing in Malibu, and it really just released me. I stopped trying to control life and just went for the ride.”

An inspired Sacket became incredibly prolific as he explored complex characters with cathartic reflection and a dramatic styling for what became the twelve-track album. “I really went to those life and death situations where a life is beginning or ending. Where your humanity truly reveals itself, when your character is tested – the underlying truth. There is an absolute need and compulsion for honesty in whatever I write. What you hear is my barest self.”

Sacha has a great voice and a very good sophmore album.
I loved the movement of the songs through his emotional experiences.His voice is fantastic and the songs are very well written. Sacha has a little something to say to everyone. I'm eagerly awaiting his forthcoming album, Lovers and Leaders, to hear the rest of the stories.

Music for rainy sundays
There is a perfect balance between acoustic and electronic elements in the melodies of sachas songs. The music is fantastic the lyrics are great but the very best on this album is sachas voice. A very talented musican and a wonderful cd for rainy sundays !

Awesome!
I first heard Sacha's voice on another website, and had to buy this CD, I love it and listen to it everyday. I love the piano in "Paris and September".

Roger J. Kuhn

Stunning
One of the most amazing CD's I have heard in a really long time. Pure poetry, pure art. The songwriter manages to take the listener on a voyage through his lyrical landscape all the while allowing the listener to paint his or her own story onto his musical canvas. I highly recommend this CD.

Let Yourself Dive In...
Let yourself dive into the magic and wonder this cd evokes. To say that this recording is great is an understatement. Sacha manages to capture emotions that we thought were safely locked within our self conscious. Let the walls come down and dive into the beauty of Shadowed. This cd is about as close to perfection as one can get. Dive in!

Breathtaking!
fantastic album. stunning from start to finish. heartbreaking, Sacket's voice on this record is strong and powerful, yet heartbreaking and...fragile in some ways. dripping with something visceral, like a real and tangible kind of pain. he delves deep to the dark places we fear to tread, and comes out eyes open, and we...are left breathless. One of the best cds i have heard in a LONG, LONG time. like tori? damien rice? sarah mclachlan? you'll love it. do yourself a favor and GET.THIS.NOW.

Blown Away
I have listened to all the songs on Sacha's website, and I am just incredibly blown away by the lyrics, the music, and the feeling poured into each song. Each song is so easy to relate to. Once I own this CD, it will probably be the only thing I listen to for a while.

Remarkable talent
This CD is entrancing, I can listen to it for hours. Sacha has achieved something vocally that people spend years trying to come close to accomplishing. The harmonies flow synchronously with the vocals, as if they were destined from the start. The whole mood of the album I found to be quite familiar. All in all fantastic work, I'm definitely getting his 2nd album.

A Permanent Fixture In My Car
I was stuck in an hour long traffic jam coming home from work one night and it didn't matter because I had "Shadowed" to keep my company. I can listen to "The Prodigal" over and over, even though the lyrics are harrowing, the sound is soothing and Sacha's falsetto on the chorus is a perfect moment in music.
