Following her debut album tour in early 2016, Saskia embarked on an unusual and successful tour of entirely donation based concerts later that year, which won her her second round of Arts Council funding, as well as generating new fans and new interest in her unorthodox methods. 2017 saw her touring internationally for the first time, breaking into Belgium, and releasing her second original album (‘Night & Day’) with a new 5 piece folk super group featuring multi award winning players. In 2018 she gained her first endorsement from Agnew Instruments and performing to a 800 person crowd in Portugal, which she quickly followed up with a second sponsorship from JWC Guitars in 2019, helping to fund her latest album.
Currently, she resides in London, and focuses her efforts on creating unusual and joyful experiences for people through music. Including sending a CD around the world through fans, creating a music video out of postcards fans sent in from their home-towns from all over the world, and most recently, bringing her fans into Studio 2 in Abbey Road Studios to form a make-shift choir and back her in her new single release.
2020 is full of international plans to see her take her music into America, Canada, follow up on her 2019 concerts in Denmark and Germany, and re-visit Holland. She is focusing now on releasing singles over the year and building up to an EP launch.
