Biography of Sasha Raven

I was a very quiet child and very an introverted person. My passion was music and it’s still. My mother was a classical guitarist, but I didn’t show any interest in learning or playing guitar. I have started learning to play guitar when I was almost twenty years old. My friend convinced me into that, he showed me four chords and that was it. With that four chords, I composed my first song. I was impressed by that and until today, I have composed over four hundred songs. Some of my songs can be heard on music social platform Soundcloud, Spotify, Deezer, Amazon, iTunes and so on, but a very few on YouTube. In the year 2005, me and my friend, created the band Dharma. My friend met those days Paul Godfrey from worldwide band Morcheeba. My friend first didn’t know who is he (Paul Godfrey) or who is Morcheeba. Paul gave him a business card and he showed me that card. I was excited and I said to my friend whom he met. A coincidence was that my friend met Paul Godfrey again the other day. And he showed to the Paul our song Winter’s Day (a.k.a. Afterglow). Guess Paul liked that song, so he wrote the lyrics for Afterglow. But Dharma didn’t last long, because of different music taste in the band. So we simply split the band. I went on my solo music career. I have released the songs like Kiss Me, Moonrise, Indian Summer. Beside music I write also poetry. I have also released two poetry books and four e-books. Poems are about social problems, love, pain, sadness, sorrow, death and also about the crypto world… I wrote also a fairy tale for the children. Beside guitar, I play also bass guitar, I sing and write lyrics. My music influence are Radiohead, Muse, Nirvana, The Vines, Royal Blood, QOTSA, Suede, Placebo, The Kills, Jack White and many other bands.
