Sasha Dias had reggae rhythms in her blood, from her grandfather. She has let her musical prowess flow in her debut album Break Free, filled with original songs, classic covers and stimulating melodies that intone a Reggaeton Pop vibe.
The 23-year-old Dias from Fort Lauderdale has strong roots in Jamaica’s music culture. Her grandfather and music mentor is Jamaican veteran singer Winston Dias of Cericy Tea fame and who performed R&B with the Drifters.
On her album, you can hear original compositions like the title song Break Free, That’s It and Walk Away. Original tracks infused with Reggaeton Pop jump out like Boom and Four Leaf Clover. Then there’s her cover of Jennifer Rush’s Power of Love, redone by pop queen Celine Dion.
“I’ve been performing Celine Dion’s Power of Love since I was 16,” says Dias. “It’s one of my favorite songs and I’m so excited to have it on this album.”
Her cover of Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough is a duet with Jamaican crooner Terry Linen.
“It was a pleasure for me to work with her, doing the song,” says Linen. “The song is doing well in Jamaica. Everyone wants to know who she is. I wish her well and that she’ll get to the sky.”
The album Break Free is produced by Lindel Thompson, who co-wrote songs with Fitz Livermore and Fabian Smith, including the single That's it. The album is distributed by LTK 20 Rechords and is available on iTunes, Amazon and all major online distributors.
