If ever an artist could create a tangible sound, it’s Sakr.
The music is more than sonic exploration, it is art that fills the air thick with emotions of undeniable weight and soft melodic contours filled with poetry.
Leaning on inspiration from the natural environment, Sakr creates moments in sound that reflect a physical state either experienced or imagined.
his ambient yet heavily bass glitchy production style, paired with haunting vocals, create a juxtaposition that is the perfect balance between hopeless and hope.
Sakr is an experience you’re welcome to explore.
Sakr is the solo project from producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer/ songwriter Sam Sakr who has worked with the likes of Sarah Aarons (Dua Lipa, Zedd) Alex Hope (Troye Sivan, Tove Lo) Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez) Australians pop artists (Guy Sebastian, The Veronicas, G Flip, Jessica Mauboy) just to name a few.
Sam’s strong pop sensibility in both production and song writing has led him work with some of the biggest names in popular music, however his vast musical skill set has led him to develop a personal project that is very different. Sakr has been inspired by the likes of James Blake, Shlohmo, SOHN, Bon Over and Jon Hopkins and his tastes are complemented by a love of soul and RnB. Together, his talents as a writer and producer and drive to push the limits of the norm have led to create a very special solo project that will no doubt have ears wide open and the world at attention.
