Opulent sweeps of electronic orchestration frame the evocative voice of Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Sacha Sacket on his third full-length release, Lovers & Leaders. A strong pop current underscores themes of surrender and acceptance.

âAlthough itâs a love album, the theme is really more about my battle not to succumb to it,â says Sacket. â I guess I equated love with losing power, losing my goals and aspirations. I was trying to find the balance between honoring someone else and myself, while at the same time - finding where the edges meet.â

The boldly titled Lovers and Leaders is as diverse as the characters that inspired it. The lyrics explore the freedom that comes through love, the nobility of leadership, and the devastating impact of the lack of either. Fans of Sacketâs confessional songwriting will immediately recognize the classically influenced melodies that are at the heart of the composerâs polished musicality. Lyrically, he stretches beyond the internal scrutiny of self-examination to etch distinct portraits of others with crystalline clarity: A disillusioned lover watches the runway recede from an ascending jet as she recalls âdays of legs and sheets and lipsâ in âHow Low?â An obsessive friend, âJudy (for shame)," dries roses and arranges dolls in rows on her bed, and in âBrandon Boyd,â the entitled âcool kidsâ intone threats to âkeep the fat chicks/and the fags in line.â Sacketâs gift is not only to breathe life into these characters, but also to reveal their humanity.

Born in Iran to a multi-cultural family (his father is Iranian, his mother British) Sacket came to California at age one where he grew up in the sun-baked sprawl of the San Fernando Valley. Among his high school peers were members of Linkin Park and Hoobastank. And âBrandon Boyd,â as named in song, is the classmate who co-founded the band Incubus.

With the release of his second album, Sacha Sacket took his artistry far a field touring relentlessly with concerts at hundreds of colleges and music venues while garnering airplay on 150+ independent, college and NPR stations. With the advent of myspace, his audience grew exponentially and national media outlets soon took notice. Noted one reviewer, âSacketâs music is not one for easy comparison. His remarkable and plaintive sensitivity conjures thoughts of a young Elton John, while a beautiful, textured piano recalls his classical past â a young obsession with Beethoven. His talent, however, is undeniable from any perspective. Armed with a unique and powerful voice, which is perhaps his greatest asset, Sacket grabs you right in the gut and never lets go.â

With Lovers and Leaders, even though Sacket confronts emotional vulnerability, his position is one of strength. âIâm not crying, walking down the street or anything,â he laughs. âMy music balances me. Itâs a super shot, an âespressoâ shot of me. In my music, I say things that Iâve never said to anybody. Itâs private stuff that I donât really talk about: except to the world.â
