Saritah is an Australian singer-songwriter. She was born in Seoul, South Korea and brought up mostly in Perth, Western Australia. She now lives in Melbourne.
Saritah delivers a potent combination of feminine spirit, conscious lyrics and heartful melodies whilst embodying a unique union of roots, reggae, soul, acoustic and dancehall. SARITAH has a positive vision for the future which shines through every word she sings and every note she plays.
A festival favourite with a vibrant stage presence, Saritah has toured consistently within Australia and abroad since the release of her debut album Gratitude (2004). Playfully powerful, Saritah’s live shows are colourful celebrations of life. Her songs are reflections, affirmations, invocations, revelations.
The new album DIG DEEP, due for release in November 2012, reveals Saritah at the next level of her career. Recorded in the hills of Montecito, California, the album deals with personal evolution as the starting point for global revolution. The songs on the album were birthed from personal experiences of joy, loss, and inspiration.
TEARS OF JOY, the first single off the album, is produced by Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys, Manu Chao, Jack Johnson, John Butler Trio, Beck) and is the soundtrack to good times shared with loved ones.
