Nothing will stop this rising star performing
FOLK-POP singer and songwriter Sahara Beck has proven she isn't only talented, but tough to boot.
The 18-year-old performer battled a bought of the chicken pox mid-tour and said nothing will stop her from performing at Studio 188 on Friday.
"I'm looking forward to playing there, I love it," she said.
"My favourite part about music is performing with my band who I've grown with and that moment when the crowd clicks with you."
Sahara recently graduated from high school and said she now hoped to make music her career.
Over the past year the young artist has released a critically respected EP, toured and played shows non-stop, had her music featured on radio, online, on television and has collaborated with numerous artists nation-wide.
"I'm in my gap year now so this is my year to get my music on its feet and make it happen," she said.
"The recent success I've had has been really rewarding, I've been working towards playing music properly since I was 14 so it's been great to get some recognition.
"The Bloom tour has been amazing so far, we've performed at a few great venues."
The performer said the new album 'Bloom' is based on a person's growth and development over time.
"It's about the person you become through your own and through others' experiences and the change in a person as they grow," she said.
"My favourite song is 'The Creators', I enjoy playing it and I connect with the meaning the most I think.
"I'm looking forward to the rest of the tour and just playing my music."
