There’s just something so compelling about a dramatic song that draws you in and keeps you hanging to every note, staying frozen in the fictional world it creates. Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sasha Prendes’ new single, “Stay,” is an emotional torch song that will resonate with anyone who has experienced love, loss and heartache.
This soulful ballad was a real ‘WOW’ for me on so many levels. First, I love the haunting piano instrumentals that set the brooding tone. Second, Sarah Prendes gives a powerhouse vocal performance filled with heartache and passion. Third, the lyrics give you all the feels if you’ve ever loved and lost someone.
Sasha Prendes is a Cuban-American bi-lingual artist who has written over 200 songs in both English and Spanish. A bit of that was represented in “Stay” as she fluidly switched to Spanish on several occasions mid-song.
Keep an eye out for this rising star, as more new music is set to drop October 13th with an air of mystery surrounding any further details.
