L.A. based Sayed Sabrina released Thou Art That in 2019 and the results make for a hard-hitting album of rock solid music. Filled with a memorable mix of blues, funk, soul and alternative rock with a jazzy overtone, the 12-track CD is a perfect showcase for Sabrina’s hearty blues-tinged vocals, songs and excellent piano work. Backing up her vocals and songs are some fine players, including a wide range of guitarists, bass players, drummers, string players and horn players. The opening track "The Pedestrian" will bowl you over with its deep mix of jagged funky-rock and blues. The CD of Thou Art That is superbly packaged with eye-popping color pics and complete lyrics. Sabrina grew up in L.A. and was part of the punk rock scene back in the 1980s, as well having done gigs on the same bill with B.B. King, Dr. John and Leon Russell. Drawing on her wide-ranging background, Thou Art That is very much rooted in blues, soul, funk and rock music. Describing the wide range of her influences Sabrina says, “I’m more like a singer that knows what it’s like to have the blues. I like emotionally driven music.”  With the release of Thou Art That, Sabrina Sayed establishes herself as a world-class singer singer-songwriter.
