Sadie Horler is one of Devon’s most talented and aspiring young artists.
Setting the foundations of her musical journey by busking on the streets of Exeter at age 14, Sadie’s hard work and dedication to music has paid off. Four years later, she has established herself as a firm favourite on the South West music scene.
With many of her self-penned songs being broadcast on their show and three ‘Uploads of the Week’, BBC Introducing in Devon and Cornwall are huge supporters of Sadie’s music. They have invited her to their Plymouth studio to play live in session and to the BBC Introducing Festival Stage. She was also chosen to play on Radio 1’s closing showcase at their academy when the R1 Big Weekend came to Exeter in 2016.
After entering their ‘Emerging Talent’ competition in 2016, Sadie won the opportunity to perform at Watchet Music Festival. The following year, she went on to win Lemonfest’s prestigious competition to open the main stage and earlier this year, she was awarded Bridport Folk Festival’s ‘Young Musician of the Year’ award.
Her mesmerising voice has not gone unnoticed within the industry with Universal Studios jumping at the chance to use her vocals for American fantasy television series ‘Emerald City’ and Heart FM commissioning her for primetime commercials.
In 2015, Sadie’s first self-released single ‘25th’ reached number 5 in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. She has since gone on to release two further singles ‘Lovelorn’ and ‘Desire’ and two very well received EP’s, ‘Two for Joy’ in 2016 and ‘Solivagant’ in 2018.
With her effortless and haunting vocals, Sadie performs with warmth and authenticity, captivating her audience with her engaging but unaffected presence. Her heartfelt lyrics are inspired by events and people around her with every song telling a compelling story you do not want to miss.
