Biography


Canadian artist Sarah MK is well-intent on redefining the preconceived notion of what a modern-day songstress should sound like. From the harmonious nature of her vocal arrangements over multi-talented musician/producer Jordan Peters' hypnotic sounds, to her melodic compositions reflecting the thoughts and ideas of a woman with a strong sense of purpose, Sarah MK strikes the balance between message and music with graceful mastery. Seamlessly alternating from slow-burning R&B to full-blown MC, she has a measure of versatility and scope matched only by her lofty ambition. Sarah MK aspires to elaborate her progressive agenda of forward-thinking, honest music, rather than the nostalgic pining of most old-school revivalists. The first iteration of this philosophy is her debut EP, titled "Worth It", in which she champions self-improvement via the evaluation of her life's experience, wondering out loud: « Is it Worth It? ».
