Canadian classical trained musician and singer POESY creates pop music full of dark textures and goth-inspired soundscapes. Her first single of the year is entitled "Still Breathing" and is off of her forthcoming LP I Exist which will release later this year.
In "Still Breathing," POESY understands the power of perseverance after a difficult and challenging traumatic time in her life. With lyrics including "I'm one of your sins / If I stay here I am going to lose my skin / I'm broken free / Try to slaughter me but I keep on breathing," POESY is empowered by acknowledging the toxicity of a past relationship and rising above it by breaking a seemingly vicious cycle in order to blossom and be herself. With gritty garage rock guitars, powerfully intense soul-infused vocals and candid lyrics all about deception, "Still Breathing" is a soaring rock song full of confidence and grace. POESY has a unique ability to craft rock music that is raw and emotive, a refreshing change from today's polite musical landscape.
POESY is the musical project of Sarah Botelho. The singer and pianist started playing music at four years old, quickly immersing herself in all aspects of music by performing in musical theater productions, opera projects and various rock bands. She first gained attention from appearing on The Launch, a popular Canadian music show which led to her major-label debut "Soldier of Love" which charted on the Billboard Top 40. Her upcoming album was heavily influenced by a difficult time in her life where she was betrayed and deeply hurt. Take a listen to "Still Breathing" now as a reminder that you are stronger than you know.
