Carol Llyod Award Showcase Artist

Sahara Beck

Sahara Beck

One of Queensland's most powerful voices, Brisbane's Sahara Beck always brings fierce energy.

Sahara released her new EP, Queen Of Hearts at the end of 2019. Crafted by ARIA Award-nominated producer Tony Buchen (Mansionair, Courtney Barnett, Montaigne), it’s fearless, flamboyant and brimming with seductive art pop, with Sahara’s sensuous voice shining front and centre.

Two years in the making, it stars her previous singles ‘Here We Go Again’, ‘I Haven’t Done a Thing Today’ and ‘Don’t Overthink It’, which have already won over fans, radio stations and streaming services around the country. Hot on their heels come two new singles, ‘Queen Of Hearts’ and ‘21st Century’.

A natural entertainer, she’s graced the stages of The Falls Music & Arts Festival, Bigsound, Blues Festival Byron Bay and Festival of The Sun, and scored highly sought-after slots supporting esteemed artists like Bishop Briggs, Kim Churchill, Ball Park Music, Ocean Alley and Paul Kelly. Throw in big love from triple j and community radio nationwide and spots on Spotify and Apple’s new music playlists.

In the last year, Sahara received third place in the illustrious Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition (for ‘Here We Go Again’), first in the Unsigned Find International Songwriting Competition, the 2019 Carol Lloyd Award, and four Queensland Music Awards.
