About

Prolific and profound, uncertain yet searching, Sarah Kinsley’s surefooted songs are a powerful reflection of her ever-evolving self. A schooled but intuitive musician/singer/producer, she expresses and explores doubts and dreams in the captivating and sometimes ironic alt-pop songs on Ascension, her debut EP for Verve Forecast.

Music has encapsulated her life from a young age, exploring her passion for the art form through youth orchestras and later studying Music Theory at Columbia University. In her songs, Kinsley brings wonder and weirdness, musically and lyrically, as well as via her cinematic videos.

Her rise to fame was ignited by the virality of her song "The King" in 2021 on TikTok. She then released an EP of the same name, which was listed on NME's list of top debut projects of 2021. Kinsley followed up the project with subsequent EPs, Cypress (2022), and Ascension (2023), her first release with Verve Forecast.
