Saskia started her career as a Harley Street Craniosacral therapist until her life as a performing artist took off in 2015. Since then, Saskia has released several albums, EPs and singles and toured the folk and acoustic scene across the UK and Europe.

BBC Radio regularly features Saskia's songs and she has had premieres on The Folk Show (Sky TV) and been interviewed on London Live TV as well as being awarded grants from Arts Council England for touring and recording.

Hot on the heels of her autumn 2019 album Baez, Dylan and Me, recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios, Saskia will unveil her new album on July 31st.
Are You Listening? is a collection of evocative personal songs written by Saskia and recorded at Fieldgate Studios in Wales.

The new collaboration is the result of two women sharing a passion in creating quality acoustic music mirroring the style and capturing the energy of the great legacy folk artists.
Susanne Marcus Collins says: "The timing of this album couldn't be better for the times we find ourselves in - it is calming, uplifting, and inspirational. I am honoured to be a part of its creation."

The second album, due to be recorded over the summer, will see Saskia returning to London's Abbey Road Studios, with international release planned for the end of 2021. 
Due to the current climate, tours scheduled for Spain, Germany, Holland, the USA and Canada have been postponed.

Says Saskia: "I want this album to be available, even if I can't tour it the way I usually would. Music has perhaps never been as important as it is right now so we decided to go ahead with the release as planned and hope the songs may resonate with people and in a small way offer some solace in these difficult times.
