What's Going on in the Life of Sasha Mullins?


Stephanie:

I'm so appreciative that you have posted about my music.

Like I mentioned to Cyril Huze, I didn't wait for any record company. I'm doing this all the nitty gritty biker chick way: soulo. Like a road gypsy riding and camping her way across the country on a passion trip with no particular destination, just doing it because she LOVES to and she must. It's like breathing. The art of writing, music and riding is breathing to me. It's life. No matter what, I'm giving my dreams free spirited life.

My latest single 2 Wheels Move the Soul unexpectedly became an ode to the 40th Anniversary of Easy Riders. Trevor and I wrote the song last November. I had the idea in my head forever and Trevor could finish my musical sentences. It was awesome. Then we moved the concept into our studio and finally demo'd the song. So, we all got to work. Featured on the track is my Patrick on bass and co-producing, he's also the bass player for country artist Tracy Lawrence. Joe Caverly on fiddle, he's the fiddle player for Tracy and has played with many major artists, Trevor is a well known blues artist from Canada and he played all guitars, and brother Mike Holmes rode that B3 home, he's another player with a long list of Nashville credentials. All these cats are riders and gearheads.

I did approach record companies but they were not too receptive because they didn't understand the whole motorcycle, road music thing. I wasn't going to wait for them. No way. So, I just took it upon my own to make it all happen no matter what. It's been a long, hard road. Sometimes, yeah, I'd almost want to give up because the lack of money to tour, not having money to finish recording my music, and then having to work odd jobs to keep the dream alive and a roof over my head was daunting. But I just don't have any quit in me. I keep on keepin on....keep on, keep on...

The support of friends and family in the culture has been a super blessing. That's how the dream will come true.

Thanks, Stephanie, for supporting my dreams.

Love and respect,
Sasha

The aim now is Spring 2010 debut album release and we are so close

She has what it takes. All the music friends I have here in Nashville all say that it takes not being able to breath unless they can make their music is what it takes. Thanks for keeping us up to date on this fine artist Steph.

your Blog Rocks! I hope you will take a cruise over to mine and maybe give me a few pointers! This is my first attempt and I'm sorry to say I am hopelessly amateurish! LOL Any ideas?

Sasha was one of the first female biker blogs that I found on the internet. Her spirit is such a joy! I feel like a kindred spirit with her.
